Monsoon Trough

The wet season is trying to start so today we had to do a bit of a cleanup as there was a low hovering in the gulf threatening to dump a bit of rain in our area of the tropics.  As I type the low has moved considerably in land, but we all know one low is […]

White good shopping

When we bought the […]
