So, I’ve got a sick feeling in my tummy tonight.
I keep forgetting why I’ve got it and then … I remember.
At lunchtime I tipped a cup of tea on my Blackberry. Oh, my, god, I’m, such, a, f… fu … fool: a clumsy fool.
And, as you’d expect, it’s not behaving quite as it should.
In an attempt to forget my clumsy f***wittery, let me tell you about my day.
This morning I went down to the SCAD (Soi Cats and Dogs) Health Centre. This is one of the charities who have asked me to write for them and this is where the street cats and dogs come to be treated. The main idea is to spay and neuter them, but they nearly always have other bits of treatment that require doing. There were some pitiful dogs there which made me sad … but, that is what SCAD is doing – trying to improve the lives of street cats and dogs.
This afternoon I came home and tipped a cup of tea … but I’m supposed to taking my mind off that, so instead …
I’m going to go back to Andaman Discoveries to show you my ludicrous eco warrior bandana. If you peer you can see the orchid I planted and my name tag.
After I got back to Bangkok I read this in my book:
'Spiders are everywhere, in the forest, in caves, atop mountains, even in your bedroom. Anyone with arachnophobia would not want to shine a torch on a forest floor at night to see the million pinpoints of light reflected in the eyes of the spiders.
'There are spiders that actively hunt and pounce of their prey; there are sedentary spiders which wait in ambush; there are web spinning spiders which construct elaborate traps and there are even flying spiders.'
I was just so glad I got out of there without seeing any large spiders.
