hope everyone is well, we've just had tea, pizza and pasta (very thai) and thought it was time to write another episode!
Okay, a lot has happened... first things first, we've had a thai foot massage! - this consisted of roughly 40mins work on your feet, then it went into overdrive and the woman started craking toes, spines and necks! - it was scary - but we felt good after it. it was really cheap and we made a few friends when we where in there. (We have to walk past the salon everyday and they love our gem!)...
Today we have 'gone back2 skool!' - we have signed up to take our PADI course in diving. We've had an intense day of films, questions, quizzes and revision!... then we spent the remainder of the day in the pool - we were only in there five hours! our fingers where like crinkle cut chips big time! - also i think i have just about kissed goodbye to my finger pads from the guitar!
We check out of our hotel in the morning as we are going to spend two days and a night on a Liveaboard boat so we can complete our course and then dive for pleasure. It's really good fun! - there are a few scary parts - removing air supplies under water, swapping breathing equipment with your buddy (Gem) and removing your mask for a minute!.. it's been hard work, but rewarding. Once we have our PADI qualification we can theoretically dive on our own - though i think we'll leave this just for now!..
When we return to Patong we'll probably go back to our hotel we are currently in. The staff are nice and the location is great.... An added bonus is that we get to fuss a 2 month old puppy pug in the lobby every morning! - i think he loves us!... we played the pencil chewing game with him this morning.
So you've got yourself a TOMTOM - well it's probably a good thing, dad i know you've used the nat and ollie excuse for buying it - but i secretly think the routes to places are slipping through ther sieve
So Geri has moved back to Worcester?? - that should help ease the pressure of getting to Coventry... you can even bike to work Geri!... hehe
Well we hope the weather holds out on Sunday - if it's any consolation it's pissing down here too at the moment!.. Have a great BBQ and HAPPY FATHERS DAY from me! - i'm a bit jealous im missing it!... oh and the Monkey pic is for you dad... x
Anyway love you all take care... Wes and Gem xx
