Don’t be too shocked but I have actually cooked THREE times this week!!!! I know I can hardly believe it myself. I have been inspired by the cooking course I attended in Chiang Mai where I created delightful dishes to excite the tastebuds. It could be the start of a new era although I have my suspicions it won’t last for long.

Had a lovely time up in Chiang Mai (although a tad chilly – I had to sleep in my hoody and get extra blankets from the guesthouse!). The first day we went to Ratchapruek – a huge flower festival in honour of the Kings 60th year on the throne. Without trying to sound too much like my Nana it was a lovely afternoon, and I particularly enjoyed the orchids – don’t worry I won’t post the numerous pics that I have.

We also went to visit one of the hilltribes and rode an elephant proving yet a gain what a total wiener I am – it got very close to the edge of the steep bank down to the river and was more than a tad stroppy - I must remember that I do not like getting on animals! Whitewater rafting, however, was more my style and even the temperature of the water could not wipe the smile off my face. Highly recommended.
