Leaving Phuket

Today is our last day in Phuket; tonight we take the night bus to Bangkok, and then our flight to Sydney is on Sunday night. We're all packed and ready to go, the laundry is done, and the room is tidy. All that's left is to change and say goodbye.

Yesterday we went to the weekly afternoon tea of the local expat mothers group. Littletree finally broke the ice and made friends with the other kids, after 3 weeks of shyly watching them from the safety of my skirt. I'm glad that she finally got a good chance to play, but sad that now we have to leave.19 the girls Jo gave Littletree a make-up kit, full of pink sparkly eyeshadows and blushers. She's certainly budding into a regular little make-up artist!

  1. I don't blame littletree..Looks like a beautiful place to live.
    But I would imagine you are homesick.
    Have a safe journey.

  2. I'm a mother of two, working a full time job as an Executive Director of a YMCA in IOWA, USA. I absolutely love reading about your life journey. Your words make you an amazing woman, and I find such peace with all you encounter. Blessings among you and littletree.

  3. Littletree's makeup is wonderful! And her face is slimming, she's getting bigger. I love her curls!

    That babybelly in the sun shot is sweet too.


Thanks for your lovely words, witty banter and entertaining discussion :)
