Our Mark got safely back from Thailand on Sunday. He spent two weeks back in Bangkok – in the orphanage where he volunteered for three months just before last Christmas – using his physiotherapy skills with young adults, many with cerebral palsy. Facebook allowed us to watch him arranging to meet Simon in Bangkok – Simon in turn is travelling in SE Asia en route to a year’s work in Australia. Our children do the interesting travelling – I was on the 7 am flight to Luton this morning for interviews with the Mission to Seafarers. It suddenly seemed so cramped that I could hardly open my newspaper. Battery hen stuff. Maybe it’s time for the sleeper – 11.18 from Perth arriving 7.30 in Euston. Proper travel.
