No noone has gone mad although sometimes I do wonder about myself. I have made a deal with myself to finish the writing of my book in the next 2 weeks so I will take a break from my blogs until I finish. I reckon I have about ten or so thousand words to go . This is my 95th blog !! Whats been going … Continue reading MIDSUMMER MADNESS
This week has been so very hot 24 hours a day, except when it rains for about a minute every few days. Kampot is having a dry July. It is raining elsewhere. When you wake up to 30 degrees overnight with humidity at 75% you pray for rain to cool down and water your plants . Ahh my plants , still nothing lanky legged seeds … Continue reading Kampot Hot Pot
Today the sun is shining brightly, no clouds in the sky, no breeze, no sign of rain clouds.

I know I should really enjoy the weather but it is meant to … Continue reading KAMPOT CALM

After my one week break I intended to write this yesterday but the little puddy cat is sick. Two days ago , a week after her op after a great recovery she began her antics again. Getting stuck up a tree, jumping around and playing with a stray . A day later she wasn’t herself, all quite, wouldn’t eat or play with the ball. Jeni … Continue reading KAMPOT RAINY SEASON YET?

Today I thought I’d give you a lowdown on costs to live monthly here in Kampot Cambodia. Long term if you like. All costs are in US dollars as they are used here extensively. At the moment visa requirements have changed while the pandemic is occurring. If it goes back to normal and you want to stay more than thirty days, you can extend visa … Continue reading COST OF LIVING KAMPOT
This is the third time I have tried to write this , my wordpress site has changed and the wifi has been misbehaving . My PC has been a bit funny as well which has been freaking me out about losing my novel . I finally purchased a USB stick and copied my novel to where I am up to . Today I am off … Continue reading JUNE ALREADY!!!
To say I was unduly stressed these last few days would be an understatement. Being on the road you get used to being able to get what you want with a click of a key. Sadly my key was on caps when I went to check my online banking. Straight away I was locked out. I went to reset it but they send a code … Continue reading PASSWORD PANDAMONIUM

This humidity just lingers , dark clouds come a breeze blows up and we are relieved but the clouds with their thunder move past the breeze drops and I am left all sweaty again. If you don’t go for a walk to the shops by at least ten am you can’t even … Continue reading KAMPOT BEFORE THE RAINS
