Letters from Thailand

{May 30, 2007}   Missing You Already!

There are only three days left before I leave these shores, and it’s time to ponder those aspects of life here in the UK that I will miss (or not.)  Anyway, here goes (in no particular order):

I will miss:

  • Old friends and the new ones I’ve made in the last couple of years.
  • Being able to buy a bottle of wine for less than a fiver.
  • Going into a shop with the certainty that they will have in stock, something in my size.
  • Primarni.
  • My Dad’s special macaroni cheese.
  • My Mum’s roast dinners.
  • Family – especially my gorgeous little nephew – so glad I’ve been around to see him develop from birth to toddlerhood.
  • Spending summer afternoons at a beach, in a park or at a theme park – and getting paid for it!
  • Reality TV (especially The Apprentice, to see local posho, Katie, finally get her comeuppance, and this year’s BB)
  • Walkers Salt & Vinegar and Prawn Cocktail.
  • Being able to understand most conversations taking place in the immediate vicinity.
  • My bright red trench coat.

I won’t miss:

  • Cold weather.
  • Nasty foot fungus, brought on by having to cover my feet in socks & boots due to the above.
  • The smoking ban.
  • Paying nearly a fiver for a packet of cigarettes.
  • Annoying adverts for idiots who have got themselves into too much debt and think that getting into even more debt will actually help.
  • The scent of aggression that permeates every street after dark, courtesy of the local chavalry.
  • Getting the last bus home (at 11.10 pm!) or else having to pay a small fortune for a taxi.

I’m sure there are a lot more things to add, but will continue in a later post about the things I’m looking forward to…..


Have a fab trip my darling. The weather has been crap since you left and I so envy you going to the land of sun & smiles. Send my helloes to the boys.
