i know it's a bit cliched but...
sunflowers always make me smile
found growing in the park
near saphan taksin pier

out my window

view from the place we call home for now
the bangkok mass transit system
best way to travel in the inner city
and to kaelan's school with a boat ride
adjusting to the constant traffic noise
the locals say it's a cold winter
wearing jackets and scarves
it's still warm enough for me
in short sleeves and a skirt

big school boy

Kaelan's first day at school
so excited about wearing a tie like daddy
practising sawatdee khrap in the taxi
it was a big day for us all
emotions overflowing

ten years today

it's been ten years since our brother tragically died...
  • the track we used to ride down
  • flowers on a succulent from his rockery
  • porcelain bowl he would have loved for the fine workmanship
thinking of you Dan.

gorgeous finds

some gorgeous finds at robinson
dress for little; pink, naturally
sakura paints from japan
in my favourite hues of the moment
i love the colour intensity
for 25 baht ($1) each
i foresee a growing collection

nit noi

happy new year from bangkok
'nit noi' is freida's new nickname
it's thai for 'little' or 'a little bit'
fre is discovering her fingers and toes
