Sawasdee from Thailand

Honey, I'm home! 
My wonderful summer in Australia ended all too soon
and before I knew it, I was back to pick up the pieces of my Thai life.

I knew I was back when life is full of 'oh my gosh, look at that' moments!

If there was one person who was none too impressed with wandering off into the sunset (or in this case trying to sneak out without him noticing!) it was the Crazy Poodle. He's normally a happy, easy going Cavoodle dog, with oodles of energy and a real zest for life.

He limped around wailing, off his food, the kids took him to the vets only to present me with a hefty bill and the comment the Vet thinks he's faking it!

Ohhh, Bless he is so hard to leave but the good news is that he is back to bouncing around, so who knows!

To distract myself I have thrown myself into a new course learning about Thai history and culture as a potential National Museum Guide. It has been full on, being two or three times a week, with pre-reading.

The course is either held at the National Museum, Bangkok or at Chulalongkorn University. We are at the University, I'm not AT university, but never the less, both venues give me a big boost! Both are beautiful Thai settings and I have really enjoyed getting back to some studies.

I have also found us somewhere new to live. We are moving into a condominium - Don't you just love this word? I have never lived in a Condo. Our new Landlady tells us we are going to be very happy in her apartment, which is a big call and I might just hold her to this as I have seen the huge plunger on the balcony and the first blocked toilet I'm onto her!

In the meantime we are staying in a gorgeous hotel and this is my garden... Isn't it gorgeous, I can't really say I am looking forward to moving out at all!

So fingers crossed for the happily ever after in the new place!

In between all this we have enjoyed some cooler weather in Bangkok to get out and about exploring - check out this carpet of flowers, the biggest in Asia! All individual petals, amazing!

Finally I have launched my new blog, I have been learning how to use Word Press and if you would like to take a sneak peak please do. It is a work in progress and explains why I felt it was important to move from Blogger but there is a lot more work to do before it is complete and I can make the full transition. If I ever do, haha.

In the meantime I will keep posting here, until everything is sorted. Let me know what you think! Has anyone else tried to make the move? Please let me know how you got on. I'm on a massive learning curve!

Anyone for Tennis?

At the Australian Open qualifying tournament... 

Are you ready for the first Grand Slam of the year? The Aus Open starts next week (Monday 13th - Sunday 26 January) but Melbourne is already in full swing (ha ha) with tennis players and tennis action. 

You can pay to watch some of the top seeded Men's players in action at the Kooyong Classic, just down the road. Or, you can join me for what I say is one of the best value tennis, indeed let's say sporting tickets in the world. The Australian Open qualifying tournament (Jan 8 -11), where you can wander in for free. Yes free!

The 'Qualies' is one of the secret treasures of the Aus Open where players compete and must win matches on three consecutive days to secure one of the last remaining spots in the main draw.
For the past seven years we have been a host family for tennis players, which is how we have become so familiar with the highs and lows of this lead up event... 
So would you like a sneak peak inside Melbourne Park, whi…

Bangkok Blogger

Life is not about finding ourselves it is about creating ourselves! George Bernard Shaw

Cooee! It's me calling in from Thailand. Sorry, it's been a while, it's been a tad busy. Still, we've not done badly. We've moved into our temporary apartment and are well on the way to finding something more permanent. We're overlooking the American Embassy compound, which is acres of impressive greenery in amongst the high rise buildings. I love it, I can even hear the little birds sing in the morning.
So welcome to my new life as .... drum roll please, Hmmm actually, I have no bleedin’ idea, so how about Bangkok Blogger for now?
How would you feel if you were to arriving in a new country, where you know no-one, and you're not even sure what your life will entail? For me, it was a feeling of excitement, crossed with a rolling of the eyes, a smile and my 'here we go again' expression. 
Of course, this always happens Mr Wren was away travelling and so I rocked up for …

Life at Embassy Place.

We're on the move again, just call me Gypsy Wren!
We took a decision when we arrived in Bangkok to take a short-term lease at Embassy Place Apartments. We couldn’t stay longer because the place will be bulldozed to make way for a new high rise development. This week we said goodbye!

But as moving is what we do, and it seemed like half a plan to take this bigger, better and cheaper apartment, even with the hassle of moving out...
In the dizzy excitement of Bangkok apartment hunting, we knew the moment we walked up the drive, that this was the one we could happily call home. 
Come visit with me and see what you think...

I have been blessed to have lived in some of the world's most wonderful cities; Hong Kong, Brussels, and Melbourne but I'm a country girl at heart, I can’t live feeling hemmed in. 
I like the frenetic pace of life in these big cities, but I do need a retreat, a place of Zen calm.

I need to see light, have space and hear a decent dawn chorus. If I don't wake up t…
