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 http://littlewanderingwren.com, 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!

Friendship Friday!

Hello dear friends in Blogland. How are you doing? I am pleased to be here for Friendship Friday
I've had a great week and have well and truly settled back into my Asian life  where I am enjoying making new friends both locally and in here in the blogosphere.


I've had fun, I have joined a new group - the American Women's Club of Thailand.
Why the American's when you're a British Aussie? You may well ask. Well firstly they take anyone, these Expat women's groups really are not that fussy!

Well, except for the ANZWG Group where you need to be closely associated with Australia and New Zealand. I am, I have the passport and I have a family, home and of course an Aussie Crazy Poodle Down Under and I miss my Melbourne life terribly,  but my life in Thailand is more about meeting women from around the globe.

I have always had lots of American friends, I chat with many Americans via my blog...

... anyway they let this little bird in and she's chirpy about that!

The Expat - an A to Z of how not to make friends.

Ok, so I have now officially disgraced myself with the Americans…
A little bit of backstory, I moved to Bangkok eighteen months ago. It was a tricky move coming from the eight times winner of the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ Melbourne, Australia to one of the most polluted, congested and the world’s hottest capital city… I gave up a meaningful job that I loved, in the Not-for-Profit sector to become a lady of leisure.

I threw myself into life here. I enjoyed the travel and getting to know Bangkok, and we had loads of visitors, but this year everything changed when we moved into our forever place in Bangkok. Hated it, nothing worked, was miserable, so had a great summer traveling the globe visiting family and friends instead.


Back in Bangkok, ready to immerse back into my Thai life, I am moving into a new apartment and ready to make some new friends, I joined a few expat organisations…
I know, I know being an Expat sounds glamorous, we have left the homeland, or in my case homelands, and j…

Brilliant Britain in the Spring

It has been a long, hard and bleak British winter which has made Spring  all the more delightful for everyone, and especially wonderful for me  arriving in the UK from the hot and humid tropics.

Of course, we arrived to for a quick visit to catch up with family and friends  to find everyone apologising for the dismal, cold weather  - not at all I said, I love it cool these days!

We've had a wonderful time, enjoying beautiful Britain in the Spring.  Everything seems particularly green this year.
The flowers are out to delight, we just love the tulips at Dyrham House and the bluebells woods are stunning. By the May Bank holiday weekend, the weather was being reported as a 28-degree scorcher. Yeah right, it was spot on perfect for me. 
I'm heading back to Bangkok this week where the temperature will be scorching no fib!

I have finished off my Blogging from A to Z (2018) Challenge. Thank you to everyone who has popped over to find me at my new space on the internet. In case you m…
