There was a constant banging noise while I was dreaming which was about me walking around the bookstore, searching for interesting paperbacks to read. The loudness was violently shaking up my dream. I was forced to open my eyes. What a shame! I was going to buy some books, one of them was Ian McEwan‘s new novel the name of which I could not remember. It was just a dream anyway.
I realised that today is the day when the builders will come to replace the two patio doors at the back of the house. But I did not expect them to be here that early; it was about 9 o’ clock at which time I would normally still be lying comfortably in my cosy kingsize bed. I had no choice, but to get up and go straight to the bathroom.
I finished breakfast pretty quickly as I could not bear the sound of banging and drilling. I decided to get back to where I spent last night until early morning. There was nothing much to do to kill the time; I tried to occupy myself with reading, reading and more reading. Although I tried to concentrate on the thing that I was doing, my mind was somewhere else. I was so anxious to know about the protest in Bangkok, the showdown between the PAD and the Thai government. I wanted to use the internet to keep track of the news, but the computer was situated near one of the two patio doors. I was definitely not going to put up with the clattering that close to my ears. And I have been waiting until now.
