You’ve made your bed, now lie in it

Who will come to my rescue now

Something we all have to look forward to Arr! age, getting older it happens to us all. As we age, all the things we had taken for granted slowly start to disappear, looks, quickness and sometimes health problems. What we thought was our birth right was only on loan.

But being strangers in a strange land you have to be even more careful. As we take things for granted when we were younger, having someone to fall back on to help us coast to the finish line. like mum and dad, always there for you if something went wrong, when there gone life suddenly gets worse, so you have to have a plan, something to fall back on, a nest egg, or you could be in the doiey.

we don't really know what the future holds, but some pretend they do for the sake of there own sanity.

Being from the UK they say, an english mans home is his castle, now wouldn't that be nice, instead of owning a paradise home in Thailand that isn't yours. although you have paid for it :-[

As for homesick after a few trips back to the UK, yes i was sick of the place, itching to get back on thai soil, i am now convinced Thailand, the place i chose to live is best for me, not as perfect as one would like it to be but certainly better. My second chance of happiness, i'm glad i made the change.

But no matter the cheap cost of living or how beautifully the setting sun shines on the water, there is no smooth sailing off into the sunset, More important, is your health and happiness, look after yourselves

nicely put, life is not easy for some. i doubt if you will get a reply or any feedback, some of these guys are brain dead and only use the social media for bragging what they have, what they just purchased, how well off.  self promoting.

ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.

Don't take on so nan, we are all born under the same sun and we all live under the same sky. i used to think we were all born equal, but now i'm not so sure, living here, the colour of your skin counts to your credibility, whether your rich or poor seems to matter, some that have something missing in their lives might need a facebook post to tell the world, look at me, i'm important.

So what, does it really matter. Hate is not an option respect is. The world is similar to a forum and should be a place where people mix and share their experiences.   none of us are perfect, but we are all we got.

“Being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions.”

As a bed to lie in I think Thailand is as good a place as any. I have never regretted coming to Thailand, it is far better than the UK in so many ways.  The end of the road comes to us all eventually, at least here there are always plenty of monks around to see you off into the next life.

The expense of the funeral in the UK

They say that death and taxes are the only two certainties in life.

Why are funerals so expensive in the uk, the whole thing seems like a con, the next of kin are to upset at the time their nearest and dearest pass away to even think about the price.

Average funeral cost now £3,897 - that’s 103pc higher since 2004.  the actual cost of dying is much higher at £8,802 by the time you have finished ie: costs for the send off and professional administration of the estate. There is flowers to be bought, a nice little earn for the ashes, copies of the words to the hymn they would be singing. the doctors certificate, then what they call ash cash with cremations, a second doctor is needed to examine the body to check there’s nothing untoward before it's destroyed.

When you are grieving you just don't argue the toss and off course they know that.

How can you make a funeral cheaper in the UK?

an article below from spectator.co.uk is similar to the thai way how it's done here.

By recognising that there is no legal obligation to use a funeral director. The law requires only that you dispose of the body in a fitting manner. You can build a coffin yourself, or use one made by the deceased when they were alive. (Nelson’s coffin was made for him by one of his sailors, several years before his death.)

In fact you don’t have to use a coffin at all — a shroud is fine. The body doesn’t have to be embalmed, and actually unless people are going to view it there’s little point. It can remain at your house between death and the funeral: nothing unpleasant will start happening in those few days. You can bury a body on your own land (subject to guidelines about proximity to water sources and the like).
If you’re using a crematorium or graveyard, you can transport the body there yourself, getting friends and family to act as pallbearers.

Wouldn’t that be nicer than four men you’ve never met before and will never meet again?
