Re: Great Breakfast

Part of my balanced diet is the latest in Covid flu healthy products. This morning was toasted Chocolate flavoured bread with squashed banana on top. Followed by a herbal coffee.

Re: St Mary's school

Ok thanks
I was perhaps going to the Bangkok embassy soon and was going to take the family with me.
Didn’t want to get into any lockdown or isolation situation for any one.
