I'm Back!

Sorry haven't written for a while.
Well it's been a very eventful time since my last blog post. I am now an Aunt to a gorgeous boy, Brychan Wyn. He has had a tough start in life and is still in hospital, but we are hoping he will be able to go home soon. He was born a couple of weeks early and had some big problems with his little kidneys, heart, lungs and platelet levels among other things. The time he was in intensive care was probably one of the worst weeks of my life. My heart was breaking for what my sister and her husband were going through. He is much stronger now though and as soon as he starts feeding properly we are hoping he will be able to go home. I don't think there have ever been so many prayers said around the world for one little baby.

We have also moved to a better house. At least we thought it was better until someone came in yesterday and stole Nick's phone and £100+ from my purse! We were in the house at the time too. Scary. Anyway it was a wake up call as we had been rather lax about locking doors etc. Not any more!
The pool is gorgeous though and right in front of the house. It is only shared with three other houses, and we are actually the only ones who use it anyway.
We now have AC in the living area and kitchen too which makes a huge difference to concentrating on our work and enjoying watching a film in the evenings.

We had a wonderful 20th anniversary on the 5th. Nick and I went out for breakfast after getting some lovely presents from the girls. We then found a super beach with absolutely no one on it. The day was finished off perfectly with a meal at Da Vinci's with cocktails. The money mum gave us as a gift enabled us to buy loads of gorgeous plants for our new house including some amazing orchids.

We are looking forward to a trip down to Malaysia next week for our visa run. It will be nice to see some more of Thailand and get away from Phuket for a change of scene. We haven't seen much since we came here and are definitely ready for a trip. Two other places we are planning on visiting are Vietnam and Nepal. Not sure which will come first.
