(Tell the truth...did you find yourself singing? LMAO)
Yep, I'm away home to my beloved Saigon alley, tomorrow....I can't wait!
Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed my 10 days here, with those close to me...especially spending time with my best friend... a very special lady!
But the cold has got me down...the two days of sunshine were nice, but the cold damp days made me feel I would never be warm again!
I also need to go home before I end up as 10 ton Tilly...LOL
I'm shamefacedly owning up to being a complete glutton over the favourite things I cant get to eat, in Vietnam...
In 10 days, I have had Fish n Chips, 3 times....about 7 mince pies...2 roast lamb dinners...& cakes...OMG ,the cakes (& lollies)!!!!
Custard squares, brandy snaps, cream buns, lolly cake, ginger square, gingernuts, coconut ice, meringues...plus the things I have conveniently forgotten about...LMAO
Oh...lets not forget the "V"...I'm awash in the stuff!...Thank god you cannot buy it in Vietnam!
I have lost quite a bit of weight during my time in Vietnam....however, the loose trousers I arrived here wearing, have become rather firm around the waist, in the past 10 days...LOL
So back to lots of fresh veges & fruit, rice & noodles.....
BUT....I dont go unaccompanied...my little suitcase is bulging at the seams...
5 bags of licorice allsorts, 3x bags pineapple lumps, 2x bags jetplanes,( curse this sweet tooth of mine!!!) 2 packets gingernuts, 6 tins of Tuna (for on toast), 6 boxes of beef oxo cubes...& a toaster!!!!
We dont have pop up toasters in Vietnam, & I have missed having hot toast ..so now, when I cant be bothered going out, to eat, I can just have toast...with marmite, or tomatoes,or tuna, et al...Yum!
So...look out Saigon...Carol & her mobile grocery store are heading your way....LMAO
