Well the next venture was a trip back to the UK. August 5th . Was really looking forward to seeing everybody!!!!
Rose picked us up, and it was back to the house. It was a nice night so we sat out in the garden. The garden was lovely, Rose and Jay had turned it into a little bali garden, all decked, with bamboo round the walls. The decking lights came on at night, and you would think we were still in Bali. Lovely.
We were all looking forward to having loads of barbecues, but that never happened, the bloody weather was terrible the whole timewe were there.
Anyway we still had a good time visiting everybody, it was great to catch up. Elle and Tony invited us up for Sunday dinner. Bloody lovely!!
Nan had a barbecue for us, even though it was raining, all the family were there so it was a good day.
Steph and Ben invited us for lunch, and had a lovely afternoon playing with Lilly.
Soa big thank you to you all. WE HAD A GREAT TIME. As we would say in Bali .TERIMA KASIH.
Luckly for us the Olympics was on so for the first time in years we actually had time to watch them everyday. We felt well proud of our country. First time for a very long time.
It was nice just relaxing, pottering about the house, cleaning for Rose and Jay, doing the front garden. And making them dinner for when they got in from work. Which was late for Rose a few times as she was at Tunbridge Wells too.
We did her a few rehearsals of Xmas dinners, so shecould get them off to a treat. As we won't be there this year.
Anyway time soon passed by and we were on our way back to BALI..With some more lovely memories.
Hate the goodbyes so much, the only downside about being away is everytime we have to leave each other. HATE IT!!!!!!
We left on the 26th August to have a 3 night stay in Singapore. We had to pick up our Kittas visas there, so we can work in Bali..Stayed in a lovely hotel.Novetel looking out over the whole of Singapore harbour. There is skyscrapers everywhere, the place is so clean. They have great laws, to many to go into, but uk could do with using some of them.
We took a trip down the river, it felt as if we were in Disneyland. It was so muggy when we were there. Had a look at a few of the shopping malls, there are loads. But no good for us. Why would you want to spend money there, when you live in Bali and everything is so much cheaper.
Left Singapore. The airport was lovely. They think of everything!!!!!!!!!
When we arrived in Bali, Made' was there to pick us up and take us to the hotel. Made' is one of the staff that works at the hotel.
Well it was back to Bali, but this time it was back to work, if you can call it that. Ellies is a small 8 bedroomed hotel. The one we fell in love with when we were here last year. We could;nt believe it when we got offered the chance to run it.
It is a lot different to the pub, we don't have to do the cleaning, cooking, or serve the drinks. Allwe have to do is see to the bookings, and help the guests enjoy Bali. That's not hard to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!date 30th August 08.
