Check-out at 7:15 and tuk-tuk to the bus station ready for the 8:00 bus back to Phon Thong. Lots of stops en-route with people getting on and off and we dont get back until 10:30. Tuk-tuk across town to collect the bike.
First stop then is the shop where we left our shower unit at the weekend. I spot the box in exactly the same place as we had left it Saturday so wasnt too hopeful of any progress. Luckily the boss himself was in the shop and when we explained the problem to him he simply took another unit out of a new box and gave us that as a replacement with no comment. Just goes to show, even here anything is possibly if you're lucky enough to find the right person.
Fitting the new shower unit is my first job when we get back to the house and although the water pressure isnt too good at this time of day I am sure I felt a trace of warmth coming through - wishful thinking maybe ?! With the colder mornings and evenings fast arriving it would be nice to have a warm shower for a change so fingers crossed for later.
Eat a quick lunch then I retire to my back garden bench where I remain with a book for most of the afternoon.
About 16:00 we bike - should really walk - to the village market and stock up on veggies. Back at the house I water the garden whilst Jai cooks.
Lovely HOT shower before bed !!
