You are my sunshine

My only sunshine. Our kids are singing this every day. Our 2 year old boy is especially sweet singing "please don't take my sunshine away". My daughter (age 6) yesterday taught him "rain rain go away, come again another day" except she said she was bored with the hot weather and so she sang "sun sun go away"!

The season changed like somebody turning on a light. Suddenly the rain was gone. I don't think its rained at all for more than 2 weeks. Looking back at my reports... looks like the "high season weather switch" was flicked on the afternoon of 11th November. Our garden is looking dry instead of looking like a jungle. We have to get the hose pipe out every day. It's great weather for holiday makers and has been great weather for scuba diving in Phuket.

The last week has been all sun, the only notable meteorological event I would say is the onset of the North East monsoon - winds coming from over the mainland of Asia bring slightly cooler weather and can make seas choppy sometimes.

On my day off yesterday, aside from gardening and shopping, we went back to The Beach Bar for an early dinner and to watch the sunset.
