From Phuket with Love

Nearly a full week of our holiday has already sped by. Until yesterday we hadn't done anything except sleep, eat, swim and relax.
Despite this being a 5* hotel there's only cabled Internet available in our rooms and I hadn't noticed that my uber travel friendly MacBook air doesn't have a wired connection port until I needed to use it.
So here I am on an almost total social detox and I actually quite like it.
The sun is shining and a gin fizz is only a nod to the waiter away, which has to be the best possible Internet replacement I could think of.
The kids are having a great time and there first taste of freedom as we loosen the reigns a little to let them venture to the kids club or to buy an ice cream without us holding their hands.

It feels great to not be constantly on call yet slightly unsettling to think that those baby days are well and truly behind us.

Sonny is looking more and more like his big brother.

Biba is rocketing towards teenagedom...

But Betty at least is still happy to be the baby...

With love from Phuket. Xx

    Isn't it crazy about good wifi at hotels? We were just in Provence and had to do that crazy-expensive-version.

    Meanwhile you check into a budget hotel and the wifi is free!
