Back in Blighty

What a busy five weeks! We’ve visited a vast array of friends and family, eaten a terrible number of pies, pastries, cakes and biscuits, and been constantly amazed at how beautiful, green, clean and sensible England is.

We even popped up to Scotland and it was even more beautiful than England! Lauren loved it so much she decided to stay, so there will be an empty seat on the plane.

Six more days then we fly back to sunny Cambodia. Huzzah!

Les Manguiers

Lovely holiday at Les Manguiers in Kampot. We kayaked, went caving and swam in the river. Evenings were cool and the company was the best.

Bangkok Finger Op

Spent the weekend in Bangkok having Matt’s finger re-broken and re-set, as Cambodia doesn’t have a┬áspecialist hand orthopaedic surgeon.

All went well, not just the hospital visit but the flights there and back too. Just Matt and me, no Cath to tell us which queue to wait in or which plane to get on!
