    Got home from work to a letter saying the electric in the village will be off from 8am to 3pm on Saturday because of maintenance.

    Frantically trying to book a dog welcome hotel in BKK or Pattaya for the weekend.

    Admittedly quite far but pet friendly and an amazing place.

    We had 8 hours without power on Feb. 4th.

    Because of development on the nearby intersection.

    A Sunday, ffs.

    Had to have a pie each because they'd defrosted.

    Oh well, at least we didn't get 'frantic'.

    Actually, civilisation stayed right here.

    Gas cooker, so got some veg and gravy going too.

    Anyway, I hope that frantic booking of a pet friendly hotel goes well, and armstrong's transformation into Reese Witherspoon comes off.

    This place is nice and in a great location. Nice pool with a big dog friendly air conditioned sitting room on the roof. Dog bed, bowls, pee pads, and food are included.

    What's going on? I thought February was low season for Europeans, but all return flights up to second week in March fully booked so I can't extend my stay. Well, not unless I pay silly money, which I have no intention of doing. Never happened to me before and especially not in February/March. Worse the domestic flight down to Bangkok is almost full and I have to pay almost twice as much as usual.

    I'm jolly pissed off at the moment...

    The airlines learnt post COVID that they can take the piss, and have been doing so ever since.

    You are spot on mate. I’m still waiting for the downturn in prices. It has to come eventually?

    i got caught up in the Chinese new year silly season a few years before Covid. Those buggers have a lot to answer for.

    I was really moaning about the flights being full at this time of year rather than the price increases. I booked well in advance so price wasn't that extortionate but couldn't change return until after I arrived.

    Just strange to have full planes at this time of year, wasn't expecting it. Anyway, it means I go back next weekend and return again in May. The return then is cheaper than changing my ticket now, which was a full flex with change of return meant to be free of charge.

    ^ I have noticed midweek flights are also more busy than they used to be, part of airlines taking capacity out during co9vid that they haven't put back, prices have likewise remained high.

    2 bars isn't good.


    2024 is turning out to be fun and quite eventful. For Derek.

    Flew back to Germany yesterday, strong headwinds meant a different route, longest I've known at 13 hours. At least I managed a couple of hours sleep.

    Had to leave wife in Thailand to get the car sorted out. 4WD warnings on the Pajero sport. Garage keeps saying it's wiring caused by rats but if that's the case why does the warning not appear until driving for 20 minute? Sounds more like a sensor problem to me...anyone any ideas?

    Jeez it's cold coming back to snow on the car after 39C in Thailand!
