Hello Xuan and everyone,
Hope you had a lovely weekend. We had a great time at the hotel. The kids had a ball (i.e. a great time) – that’s the only way to describe it. I had lots of plans to visit Bangkok, but the weather was against us. So we just watched movies in the room (it was absolutely tipping it down this afternoon) and swam in the pool. The hotel had a beautiful pool – one of the best I have ever seen – with lots of secret nooks and crannies (that means lots of different parts, where you could explore and hide) so the kids enjoyed playing hide and seek (do you know this game?) and splashing around.
But we have got home, and nothing seems to work properly. The cooker and the fridge are on half power. We’re trying to cook a chicken for tea and it is not going very well. So I can’t blog for long – I think I will have to dash off to the food stalls at the end of the road to get something for the kids to eat.
Ooops, in fact Steve is staring at me now, indicating that I have to stop typing, jump into the lift, dash off in the tuk tuk to get food for the kids. One final task before I go – here is the vocabulary from last time. Well done to everyone who tried to guess the meanings.
Hammering at the window – hitting the window hard
Power cut – when the power e.g. electricity stops working
Fell like dominoes – knocked each other down, one after the other
Fly off – go away quickly
Sorry that I have to fly off again everyone. Speak to you again tomorrow night, hopefully in a less rushed fashion.
Anne and family
