    Mid Devon Show in Tiverton on 23rd July could be worth a look, even if back in Somerset, not far down the M5.

    The Mid Devon Show - One of Devon's Best Days Out

    as well as a festival in Seaton (not far from Lyme Regis) on 23/24 July.

    ^^^ Thanks AO... the daughter is already doing my head in and we haven't left Korat yet.

    ^^ Fecal matter I can understand, but snot on my neck and ears... yuck!

    ^ Thanks PAG, I'll look into it. I'm already thinking of extending the Dorset trip as the weather is looking so good.

    Given your itinerary, you could even do a bit of sea fishing, couldn't you?

    My coarse and fly fishing tackle has been sat in my parent's garage for the past 35 years but I think it may be a bit degraded by now. I'd love a day's fly fishing on Blagdon Lake but don't really know if it will be possible.

    It looks like mackerel fishing on the south coast.

    That is an understatement of epic proportions.

    You must be fuming over the fact that I exposed you as a little Irish leprechaun.

    You are following me around like a little bitch these days.

    A linguist like Edmond doubtless knows what I got for my 100 Baht... yeah, I even left a 20 Baht tip!
    I remember what I used to get for 1 pound 50 in Thailand, one side lower than the other.
    Do you want anything on it sir?
    Yeah a pair of knickers cus you've made me look like a kunt

    I'd imagine the Turkish barbers here would have a field day with you and wouldn't know where to stop shaving

    ^ I'd rather you weren't imagining things like that.

    When I first moved to Korat I was getting 65 Baht to my pound and my 'barber' only charged 60 Baht for a quick trim... happy days.

    With the plummeted pound and inflation, my 'haircuts' now cost well over 2 quid with the tip. And that's without any shoulder massage nonsense. Boris gets no sympathy from me.

    And despite meself I'd just like to give Edmond a shout out. Immigration were all over this permission form I got from the Amphur allowing me to take the daughter out of Thailand without the missus. No chance without it. Green owed!

    Are you going to need something like that to leave England with her?

    She's been over a few times, the firstcouple while her Grandfather was still alive, but always at Christmas. This is her first trip over for 3 years and will be her first visit in the summer. I'm hoping it will be special for her.

    Thanks mate. I hope your stomach sorts itself out.

    I hope not, but seeing as we'll be on the return leg I hopt it'll be ok. I wrote a letter the missus signed and have copies of a load of documents, but to be stranded in the UK wouldn't be the end of the world.

    I forgot to mention that part to him.


    Yup, you'll need to fly her mother out with return flights from Thailand to England if you want to get the kid back.




    Please respect the laws of Brexit.

    Try getting your haircut in UK if you think Korat is expensive. Last haircut I did in Melbourne was $65 I was seething.

    Last time I went west I had a small dental issue, the price of just consulting the dentist, with no work done, could have bought a convertible Saab.
