The cupboards/drawers are finished…. well sort of!
By 6.30pm last night they called it a day and we sat down stairs and enjoyed a cold one and some dinner. He got everything done apart from a hic up with the two corner cupboards as the hinges weren’t correct. As soon as he gets some new ones they will be put on. The other problem was the gas hob. The power lead ended up being 2 inches short of the plug! Somboon will fix that while we are gone.
So after four months of living here when we return in 5 weeks time we will finally be able to cook in our own home which I am really looking forward to. Crouching over a bucket full of coals downstairs with my back is not an ideal way to prepare dinner (for me!)
I didn’t take any photos last night as the place was a like a bomb so took these just before we left the house this morning.
I typed this email up on Friday morning before leaving the village for Ubon but had no connection again to upload the post. I tried in Ubon and again at Bangkok airport but no luck. It is now Monday morning and we are safely in New Zealand, the land of the long white cloud and half decent internet! The trip went well apart from a hic up with Royal Brunei at Bangkok but I will save that for another post either tonight or tomorrow morning as we have a busy day planned here so I need to get cracking.
