and on the road,
to visit a sick friend in hospital, Mr. Tony,
but before we left Diana had tried some of the eye shadow that Kai had kindly bought as a present for her from the UK,
for some time before his admission Mr. Tony had a cough which was getting worse day by day,
so a visit to the hospital confirmed that it was serious,
he had Bronchitis,
so we were on our way,
do you ever have one of those times when you wake up and it is not quiet light, but it is not quite dark? this is Mr. Tony having a similar type of experience when it is not quite elevenses but not quiet lunch time as he scours the laundry cupboard for a snack and finds none!
but seriously Mr. Tony has made good progress and hopes to be out of hospital in the next few days,
after chatting away it was time for our lunch, so we were off to the Robin's Nest for the 249 baht carvery,
gammon ham and pork for Diana,
gammon ham, sausages and shepherds pie for myself,
after a break a serving of ice cream for both of us, just coconut for Diana,
a scoop of everything for myself,
followed by one of these,
a latte coffee, delicious, famous not only for it's Sunday carvery it has a full selection both British and Thai food as well as everyday specials, the Robin's Nest is located in Soi Diana, as you walk from Soi Bukaow it in on the right just before Soi LK Metro,
keeping to a war theme, though in a much more light hearted way Dad's Army, set in the fictional south coast seaside town of Walmington-On-Sea during World War 2, alternating moments of gentle character comedy with broad slapstick, it recounts the misadventures of the local voluntary defence force (or 'Home Guard') consisting of men too old or 'unfit' for military service or some in occupations that were vital to the war effort, I was not too sure how Diana would like this series, the early episodes are in black and white which I know she does not like in films, also how she would view the many characters in the series, but she loved it, so much so we watched all of the first series, all 6 episodes back to back!
we finished the evening with 2 more episodes of Downton Abbey series 3, they do not have titles but are listed as 3.2 and 3.3, by now it was past the midnight hour so for us we were off to bed.
