This one's for Husband

Regular readers know that Husband had a horrible time getting home from India last week.

We were lucky that he wasn’t in Mumbai. But terror, being what it is, meant that I was worried sick especially as I knew that he couldn’t get back into Thailand because of the anti government demonstrations taking place in both Bangkok airports, Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang. With these two airports closed, the regional airports were under enormous strain to try and deal with everyone diverting to them.

In order to get out of India, he left Bangalore on Thursday night, not for Thailand as planned but for Singapore. Once there, a complicated plan to return to Thai soil was sketched out. ‘While you’re in Singapore,’ I said, ‘if you can get to Takashimaya, please would you swing past that nice stationery store? I’d like an orange box folder please.’ OMG. Do you remember the post about the divine Bookbinders Design shop? Oh dear, I salivate, dribble…

So lovely, patient readers, this post is for Husband, who thought that ‘Update: arrived home 7.30pm’ was an insufficient fanfare for his eventual homecoming. I present to you, my very own ‘Milk Tray Man.’ This is what I imagine his trip home, accompanied by my orange box file, was really like:

Glad to hear he got back safely - must have been quite the adventure. Love the photo sequence and am equally glad to know I'm not the only one with a serious stationery addiction!

Great photos and I love nice stationary too but haven't found anywhere here yet to indulge my passion. No more problems with your site either.
Hope the difficulties in Thailand are resolved soon, the news this morning sounds quite alarming!! So glad that hubby is back with you.
Take care.

That has got to be the cutest thing I've ever seen! I must show it to my own husband, who endured an equally grueling overland trek home last week, but alas, I lack the computer skills needed to depict him lugging our duty free Bombay Sapphire!
