HELLO THERE !

Tuesday, 14th January, 2014 was a very special day for us. On one hand we were of course sad that our one month stay in Bangkok again had come to an end and we were on our way home – on the other hand, it was also the day my friend Jean left ‘at the crack of dawn’ to go to Hospital to give birth to the long awaited 3rd child into her lovely family.

The last couple of weeks were a bit tiresome, to say the least, for her – the baby kicking like mad which made all of us believe that she would give birth to another future football champion.

But Oh boy (hic) were we mistaken – Jean gave birth to a beautiful little girl,

All is well and we cannot wait to see this little bundle of joy next month when we will be back in Bangkok again.

I like to share a few photographs which I took by the Pool just a couple of days before her arrival. Kieran – talking to his future ‘baby brother’ whilst Samantha (Sam) kept singing little songs to her ‘baby sister’. But now they are both just happy to have their baby at home.

Monsoon Football

Wonderful – the Monsoon rains bring much needed relief from the heat, but of course, amongst other things, creates havoc on the roads!

But look here, those youngsters in Fort Cochin were not put off by the heavy downpours (I was – I stayed in the car, :)) and played their football games with vigour.

It was great fun just to sit in the car and watch them.
