Phuket Weather

Todays Weather - Blue Skies

I joined the ThaiVisa forum today. Don't know why I hadn't before. Loads of Thailand chat on there. I answered one question about the weather and said "the weather in September is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get". Phuket weather in July and August is more stable, but now we see typical September weather - it changes nearly every day! Some could call the weather "unstable"... It seems a boat sank near Phi Phi yesterday in a storm and one person died - and yet today has been warm, sunny, almost cloudless.

Life is full of changes. Our friend Forrest Gump was not wrong. Life is a box of chocolates. Not every chocolate is the caramel.. sometimes you get left with the coffee creme. In the movie, Forrest's wife dies of cancer. My mum has cancer. Again. Today she said "I have been blessed to have cancer twice".

I would like to say Rest In Peace to Jane Tomlinson, who died of cancer just a couple of days ago. When she was told she had 6 months to live, she went out and lived and raised huge amounts of money for charity. My mother also reminded me of Terry Fox, who decided to walk across Canada when he had cancer, also raising millions for charity. He made it about half way before the cancer got him. I recall visiting a memorial to him back in 1995 when I was in Canada.

You get 1 life. Come rain or come shine, enjoy it.
