Social Distancing at home


For the last 14 odd days, we have been in lockdown at home. I have only been to the Super Market once during this period for about 20 minutes to buy another two weeks of meat and vegetables. The rest of the time has been spent at home listening to Audiobooks, listening to YouTube Music and looking at News on the Internet. Social distancing is very important, so as a family unit, we have not mixed...

The art of self-isolation


Photo by cottonbro from Pexels At the start of this year, such a set of words like this being said, you would have been looked at with a crazy stare and people wondering what sort of drugs you were on. Since that point, well for many until a vaccination comes, self-isolating is something that needs to done to preserve your health. So out at our village, I have closed our front gate, advised...



I have not written for some time as I have been sick. The last four months have been a hard slog as I have been very depressed and over the last week, my mood has been very unstable. I think I am going now through a mixed state (between depression and hypomania) because at times I feel like I am touching God and I want to be famous. Yet then a few hours later I am just depressed and have no...

The Pioneering Spirit


Going to be a different post today. I just finished watching “Hell on Wheels”, and it got to do a lot of thinking. What makes a person have so much drive to do such an endeavor as build the Trans-Pacific Railroad? What makes people pack up and travel halfway around the world like the Irish and the Chinese did. Was it due to the sickening poverty and war or was it is a lust for...

Trip To Uttaradit


Yesterday was a sad day. We drove East to Uttaradit. The Labrador that we have had for three years went to a new home on a Duriun Farm to one of Fhon’s good friends. I have not been well enough over the last four months to take care of the dog properly and we decided it was much better for the dog to have wide-open spaces with a friend that was totally in love with Labradors. Fhon cried for...

Acaba Coffee


I have been depressed for quite some time. In the evenings, I just get very sad and morose and get very down and cry. That is the terrible part about being depressed – you just have no reason at all to be depressed and you just are. Nothing shifts it, you don’t care about things and it is not good for those around you. So Fhon yesterday got me to get up early and she forced me into...

Three Years Ago


Three years ago I wrote this on my other blog. I was a mess at the time and I had just only met Fhon who was known back then as Mrs. Cake Girl. The difference of my life now is great but I am now in the middle of a depressive episode and now heavily medicated but in a better frame of mind. Just proves things can change over time. THREE YEARS AGO For the past 30 years, I have been taking...

SangSan Coffee Shop


As you see by their Napkin, SangSan Coffee seems to take their coffee seriously. For a coffee shop that is based on the 1006 going to Bo Sang, it is off the beaten track but has a large local following it. SangSan Coffee I saw advertised on Food Panda, so they are doing local deliveries of there brew, so I wanted to see what it was all about. Here is a list of there coffee. They use a commercial...

Kookkai Coffee Shop


I am always looking out for somewhere cool to hang out in the hot afternoons in San Kamphaeng. Many of the small local shops do not have air conditioning and sometimes I am not looking to drink just coffee. Thailand has a base of different drinks from iced lemon drinks to Thai Teas that you can get on ice. The coffee from Kookkai Coffee Shop (Facebook Page) is okay but I have found that the Cha...

Having to Trust


I have been sick for the last few days with terrible diarrhea and last night had to visit my doctor to get some help. If you are in San Kamphaeng and you need a doctor that can speak basic English, Renu Medical Center is the place to go. If you have a Thai partner, they can ring 053 392073 to get better directions. Over the years I have been going to see countless doctors, I have found it very...
