After breakfast we head out to start delivering invitations around the village.  At first it seemed to be a straightforward job but I always forget that nothing around here is straightforward !Jai decides that she cant read the envelopes, written by daughter of next door, she cant remember where everyone lives, etc, etc.  With about 2hrs gone and only about 10 invites delivered I call it a day.  Jiap will be having her first child before we finish at this rate.  We take everything back to the house and I persuade Jai to pay the young lad in the house opposite to do it for us.  Either I was going to die of frustration or kill Jai, either way it wasnt going to end happily, so 10GBP was well worth it.  As I suspected it wasnt a hard job and he was back a couple of hours later with about 200 invites already delivered.  Easiest 10GBP he will ever earn.In the evening we go to the village shop and order the rest of the booze for the party not forgetting a bottle of sherry for the ladies of course.
We then discover that there is a problem with the marque we had booked.  Even though we had booked it and had it entered into the office diary - by the girl with the texting and play games medals - she had still decided that it was OK to give it to someone else instead.  They dont even live in Khamnadie but a village about 30km away.  I suspect money changed hands but ...  She tells us that if we would like to go to the village oursaelves we can take the tent down - from the middle of a funeral !! - and bring it back with us.  Without getting ourselves killed I dont think so !
After we have eaten Jai goes to see her brother Sai next door to arrange for him to be available  with his pick-up on Saturday morning to ntake us into Phon Thong for ma big veggie shop and then to go and collect our 200kg of pig.  He says no problem but ... watch this space !
