1) A huge dining room table, laden with plates of cupcakes, layer cakes, muffins, shortbread, chunky chocolate chip cookies, and pots of tea and coffee. The room was full of laughter and chatter.
2) It started to rain, and we were both tired, so we abandoned our walk and went back to the warmth of the house, a comfy sofa, and a cup of hot tea.
3) K has been in Bangkok all week. Before he left we were surprised and delighted to learn that our brother-in-law (resident in New Zealand) was going to be there at exactly the same time. They had dinner together on the day K arrived. A couple of days ago, we learned that a friend of ours (resident in Zambia) was just leaving home for a few days in Bangkok! Imagine our surprise! They met up for dinner this evening 🙂 .
