In about 15 minutes (which could really mean any time around here) we are off to the city of Ubon Ratchatani to do some much needed furniture shopping.
When we were living in New Zealand, Seerung did two trips over here for a total of 5 weeks to build the house and the rest of the time tried to supervise over the telephone. She has done a great job but what this of course meant that when we arrived last week there was a nice house waiting for us that was empty apart from four borrowed mattresses!
Today we plan to pick up the blinds that we organised in Bangkok to be made for us, buy a fridge and look for some table and chairs, beds, cupboards and Kitchen ware. I also need office stationary and we need some food! it’s a 2 hour drive and we are leaving at 6.30am and won’t be back until around 7pm. I hope the kids go well without us. We are hiring a car and driver from the next village for the day. He has been great to us and picked us up at the airport and then let me hire his car for the day a few days ago without him driving.
