Response: Yes we're back and it's freezing. Of course we haven't forgotten you - although those lessons seem a long, long time ago. Hope to catch up with you soon.
Response: It's been great hearing from you too. Can't believe how cold it is here.
Do you think 2 weeks partying is enough? Hope to be there for the Midlands leg.
Response: Coming home - mixed feelings; work - what do you think!
Response: As we said to Roger (see earlier message) Micky did not want to be photographed and we respected that choice (and never managed to sneak a decent shot). We'll be back before you know it.
Response: Maybe. No but should have taken a photo of Colin having an aloe vera wrap - too long for the sheet and all he needed was a tag on his big toe to complete the body in mortuary picture.
Response: We loved it and have done another elephant ride since, but no bathing which was the best bit.
Response: Micky was decidedly camera shy.
Response: Good to hear from you. Mozzies and leeches now - not good. Say hi to your Mum and Dad - hope they're OK
Response: Thanks - just had another one on our balcony.
Response: Good for you - 12 months still to go for me and nearly two years for Sue.
Response: As we left the islands the weather improved. Missing those beach massages already - not sure what 'extras' you might get with a massage here in Kanchanaburi (Bridge over the River Kwai).
Response: Oh ye of little faith - they've scraped through so far, so who knows?
Response: Sounds good - not sure what we're doing yet, may be too hot for hiking - although hot would be a nice change after a week of rain.
Response: We should be able to download it on to a disc - as it's really our diary of the trip. All that detail is probably incredibly boring rather than incredible but hopefully we'll enjoy looking back when we're as old as John.
Be really good to see you if you're coming to Anne's this summer.
Response: Quite right. Take your woollies to Yorkshire.
Response: No but we'd like to. Can you go somewhere closer?
Response: Statue of himself?
NY for the weekend - that's outrageous. Don't like to think about our carbon footprints - we'll have to plant some trees (forest?).
Thanks for the Birthday wishes.
Response: Sorry we missed it. Next time maybe?
Response: Still bleeding when they dug him up apparently. Have you bought your pipe and carpet slippers yet?
Response: It is hot, although we're at the beach now in Langkawi and it's not raining. Hope the garden party goes well.
Response: Happy Birthday John xxx
Response: Hi - good to hear from you. Colin said "what porch?" - which is a bit worrying!
Response: Hi - good to hear from you. Best wishes and love to your Mum.
Response: All that effort to fit all those words in! Obviously I've lost all ability to write legibly - soon be unemployable.
Response: It's cold and damp here in Australia at the moment too!
