Random thoughts, comments, observations and general fluff from a random bint who left London at the end of September 2004 to embark on a new life and new adventures in Tokyo, land of the cute.... and is leaving mid-June 2010 - and counting!

about all the recent stressing out on here. I`ve spent the last couple of days, after speaking to a lovely helpful English speaker at a computer shop here, getting everything off of my computer (music, songs, documents, etc) and I`m now ready to run the original discs through and see if I can fix it myself. We`ll see.

I went to a meeting on Wednesday about working in Taiwan with the company I`m with now. One of their options is to work in kindergardens, 9 to 4, Monday to Friday with the same kids. At first this idea filled me with horror. I`m kind of warming to it now though. But, as I`m not thinking of shipping out for a bit, I have lots of time to reconsider.

Thank you for my Xmas gifts. Do feel free to send more!!!

I`m off to Thailand in 8 days, and can`t wait!

I`ve pruned the trip down and it`s still all pretty flexible but if you have any suggestions or recommendations, particularly regarding travelling between places of accommodation, please leave me a comment. Now it`s:

Bangkok - December 24, 25
Kanchanaburi - December 26, 27 (dithering over adding a third day)
Ayuthaya - December 28 (or January 5th if I spend three days in Kanchanaburi)
Phitsanulok - December 29
Sukhohai - December 30
Chiang Mai - December 31, January 1, 2 (cooking course), 3 (elephant nature park), 4
Bangkok - January 5, 6, 7, 8 (maybe with 1 or 2 side trips if I get bored)

What do you think? Seems pretty relaxed to me and, apart from the 2nd and 3rd, nothing is set in stone.
