While Daddy’s Away…

…The Girls Will Play!

Ferg’s off on a ‘live aboard’ 3 day scuba diving adventure to the Similan Islands, to one of the top 10 dive sites in the world.

We are consoling ourselves with a very, very nice resort* complete with swimming pool (with soft, fluffy towels provided), ‘posh’ bungalows (made of real bricks rather than woven bamboo), bungalow fairies (more commonly known as cleaners) and a huge, huge garden (coconut plantation) to play in.

We’re in Khao Lak, more package holiday than backpacker, but great for a few days of being alone in charge of 3 children.  There’s loads of facilities here, and lovely places to eat, so I think we will be very happy.

I’m hoping to make it to the beach at some point, I went for a run there before Fergus left, and it’s stunning.  But the resort’s so good and so different to what we’re used to, I’ll be lucky to get them past the front gates!  Ah well, maybe we should just chill out and make the most of it.  Happy days!

* We are in Phu Khao Lak Resort.  At 600 Bhat a night, it’s a total, total bargain – highly recommended
