    That’s enough to make you sick. We live in Hawthorn and the paper delivery people often overthrow the newspapers in the morning and they end up on our roof and in our gutter.

    My kids like to hit the tennis balls for six on to our roof and they end up in the gutter. We end up cleaning them often.
