Wow… time flies when you’re having fun. But as this year has dragged like a club foot – does that mean I’ve not had much of a good time?
So what have we all been upto? Well, I do have to work 6 months of the year, so that doesn’t leave me long to enjoy myself too much.
At the beginning of the year – Miss Tim and I headed to Phuket. A nice resort, fantastic views/food – only spoiled by leaving the resort and heading into Patong where it’s full of riff-raff and over-priced food and beverages. Don’t think we’ll be going back there in a hurry.
Mid-year, Miss Tim and I drove from the UK down to Barcelona. Stopping off to see friends in France – one of them being ‘Apple’ from the Big Mango.
We liked Barcelona and France. For some mad reason I did a parachute jump in Barcelona – while Miss Tim sat and watched from terror-firmer. Wimp!
We opted to drive through France/Spain as I hate all Car Hire companies. Globally. No matter what country – they’re all a rip off. Bastards the lot of them.
Towards the end of the year I went to the UK a few times to catch up with friends and to also pop over to Sweden to see how Jonas is getting on. We had fun. I shall be back.
While in the UK, I treated myself to some new toys. Some motorbikes and cars. They’re all safely locked away for the winter and I can’t wait to get back there for the Spring when I can dig them out and go for a drive/ride.
Rounded off the year in the UK seeing friends and family – and then back to Thailand for Christmas. I am now back at work for New Year – which leaves me thinking about whats in store for next year.
I’ve booked a motorcycle tour across the Himalayas on a Royal Enfield next summer, so that should be interesting.
Need to move house at some point…. somewhere that I don’t have to share with pool cleaners and gardeners.
Also I need to pull my finger out and organise the Pattaya Si 6 bar crawl. I think we said February for that.
Apart from that….. same ole, same ole.
For me, 2017 was not a bad year at all. Here is hoping 2018 is just as good if not better.
May 2018 be good year for us all.
Happy New Year! 👿
