Guess who's back...
Crumbs, if I realised how much it rains here I would have stayed in Goa.
Actually, my old chinas, 'tis a lie....
a) We were in England for a week
b) So cold, why do people live there?
c) Good beer, magnificent totty, so expensive
Our giant of a water tank is full. In fact I have had to take serial baths and open a garden tap to lower the level as it started running down the electrics to the pump. Given that it was a quarter full and it is based on three years average rainfall, you can guess how much rain we have had. Shedloads, bloody shedloads. Enough thank you, I need to earn a few shillings now thank you.
Those unfortunate to have bought the "BordD'Agua 2010" (kind of a weather alamac and it is me and Calvin (Tipi Algarve, must call in...... the short cut goes through a river in summer!!) will be already depressed.
