To much…

Trying to sort things out, and just got hit in the head that it’s a lot to sort out! But need to start in some end and that’s what I’m gonna do these last days of the year, beginning with buying a bed to our extra room so my dad and Monica will have something to sleep in while they are here. It’s just 10 days left, then I’m going to the airport to pick them up!! It’s gonna be so nice to have them here for 2 months!

Oh, forgot to tell you all about our trip to Bangkok! We had two super great days! Shopping in China Town, Platunam, Siam Paragon and Terminal 21. Got to see Andrea, who came up early Thursday morning from Pattaya. God I’ve missed her! Soon she will be back home for Christmas, so that’s okey.

Sun, sun and more sun.

The sun has been shining on us almost everyday. Raindrops has been falling from the sky in the afternoons or during the night. It’s been so pleasant to take school books and work stuff in a bag and sitting by the beach and work.

Alicia is soon finish with her next set of test. She has her deadline on Monday and she’s gonna make it.
I have been working on getting some social media planing done, mixed with my studies. My first set of test in both makeup and fashion is done, and waiting to be sent in. Cross your fingers that I’ll pass!

It’s not so many days left for our trip to Bangkok!!! Tuesday night we will be sitting on the bus that will take us there. Yes, bus! We like the bus. It’s like adventure. On Thursday morning we will be hugging Andrea, who’s coming from Pattaya over the day to Bangkok. It’s gonna be so nice to see her. Next time we will se her will be to Christmas, and that’s to long!

I really need these day away from Kamala! I’m really so tired of all the small town stuff. Need to be anonymous for a few days, just be me. Last night was one of the bad ones and I hate those days.

Day 5 and 6… Final days!

IMG_0058.JPG
After a whole week of “holiday”, it was time for our last days. This time we where on the northeast part of the island. The view we had all day was spectacular! But so hot!! No shadow, not so many clouds and a lot of moving around, made us sweat like crazy.
Had so much fun with Alicia, Amanda, Aina, Synne and Kai!

At the end of the day the sky started to be more and more grey, and a few rain drops fell on us before we where done for the day.
While we where out on the roads, we decided to stop at Rico’s for dinner. I had Plankstek! So good! So after another great day, we where all pretty tired and went home and set our steps to our beds! Slept like princess all night!
Woke up early this sunny Saturday and went out on an early morning walk around the village. Need to do that more often. Afternoon I spent with Jack on the beach. He’s a joy to see playing around in the sand.
This evening I been trying to catch up on all the webinars I missed during the week. Yepp, they are needed! So much good content to take in that my head is spinning like crazy right now. Think it’s time for some movies.

See you later!!
