    Whats your "normal" day like

    Whats your normal day like, what do do to fill it ?

    I am usually up about 5:30 to 6 o'clock, then sit down with a coffee and read the internet for a bit. Then about 6:30 off up the farm, doing the milk, cutting grass, finnished usually by about 9:30 If I have'nt got anything else to do in the day shower then breakfast (about 10 o'clockish).

    10:00-3:30 is free time unless I've got stuff to do around the farm, putting up electric fence, reparing fences, cutting trees back, fixing water pipes ect.

    3:30 back to work same as in the morning, but usually finnish about 5:30, if I've had a heavy day I sometimes miss the afternoon session and just let the staff do it. Jump in the shower as soon as I've finnished and then mabye a beer or a few whiskeys.

    Eat about 6:30 and bed time is anywhere from 8:30 to about 12 o'clock depending on wether I'm having a drink, the internet is working and how knackerd I am say usually about 10.

    I do have staff again now so I can have the day off if I feel like as well
    I have more than the average number of arm and legs

    Up at 6:15 dont talk to me until I have had a cup of coffee and one section of the paper. 6:30 get the kids up and get them in the shower, and drink more coffee.

    Get the kids in the car and leave for their school and my job at 7:20. Drop them at 7:40 and at work by 8. Put in a hard 7 hours and then pick the kids up at 3:30. Supervise homework and music lessons. Then prepare dinner for 6:30. At 7 I get free time until 8:30 when its the kids bedtime.

    Once they are asleep watch something on TV until my eyes shut and tommorrow begins. Pretty much of a routine.

    Get up whenever the wee bairn wants a turd or decides to dribble on me face. Go to work at 8, get back home between 2 and 3. Eat a bit and have a sit down and a cup of tea for an hour or so. Then either play with the kids, take them to the park or do a bit of DIY around the house (if I'm lucky I'll have time to carve a bit of wood, but not much recently). Then it's dinner at 8ish which I normally cook mesel' (curry, pasta, chips, sometimes Thai, but normally something a bit different). Then a couple of hours on the net (either porn or TD) with a nice cup of tea. Finally to bed and read a book for half an hour. Sleep.

    Get up 7.00 and straight into the shower whilst Mrs C makes me a cuppa. Changed and off to work for 7.30 after fighting with Eric the cat (tough little kunt now). Do a bit of work and fok about all day on TD. 12.00 lunch so may go home if the food at work is shite. 3.30 finish, home get changed and then off to the shack up the road for Leo's and chat to farang who tell me how their bitches and family are ripping them off - a good laugh it is. 6.00 back home, Mrs C usually does a bbq. 7.00 listen to music or watch ESPN if Footbal Focus is on or music on the house balcony if she wants to watch Thai TV. Bed about 10.00 or 11.00 to shag the misses if not to pissed

    Wake up,
    get out of bed,
    drag a comb across my head.
    Find my way downstairs and drink a cup,
    then looking up i notice i am late,
    Grab my coat and grab my hat,
    make the bus in seconds flat,
    Find my way upstairs and have a smoke,
    and then somebody speaks and it's my wife.......

    Here's two contrast:

    Normal day now:

    7-00 up & breakfast
    7-45 travel to work
    8-30 arrive work
    5-10 depart work
    6-20 home
    7-00 out for dinner and a few beers
    9-30 internet/tele/movie
    11-00 bed

    Normal day in previous job:

    7-00 up & breakfast
    7-45 travel to work
    7-50 arrive work
    anywhere from 1-00 to 4-00 depart work
    anywhere from 1-05 to 4-05 arrive home
    1-05/4-05 to 6-00 golf, tennis or swimming
    6-00 out for dinner and a few beer
    9-30 internet/tele/movie
    11-00 bed

    That's the differnce between life upcountry at a high school and life at a Uni just out of Bangkok. All the extra 30,000 pay is eaten by higher rents and higher cost of living in Bangkok. Add to that about 6 more weeks holidays upcountry...

    Beginning to think I have made a big mistake for the sake of a more prestigious and higher paying job...

    Apart from more leisure time, did you enjoy the old job more?

    William, I hope you are extremely wealthy or soon to be extremely wealthy.

    Now me, I get up between 8am and 12, cup of coffee and a look round the net, then it's off to work for me, hour or 2 later back on the net, then it's time to decide whether and where to have a little afternoon drinky poo's, then it's time to decide whether to carry on or come back home, then it's time to play on the net again or pass out in a drunken stupor.

    Yep. And the job itself sucks. Bizarre management and policies. Trying to teach accounting, operations management and e-business to a group of students who your rate on average "intermediate"...and even that's generous. Being twiddling thumbs and teaching remedial English for 3 months now. Job starts in earnest in another week.

    I give myself a month.

    Anyway, enough thread hijacking.
