It looked as if they'd finished. I had a word with the boss of bosses this morning and showed him exactly how I wanted them to leave it... which they did very nicely.
Then just before lunch I noticed that they'd dug another large hole, into which they are now lowering some big concrete inspection hole thing; cutting away certain bits so that the pipes will fit. I suppose this means we'll have a big round cast iron cover in the path.
It's stinking hot here. They must be slowly melting under all that Day-Glo plastic work-wear.
I'm going for a swim.
WHEN WILL IT END!!!Delete
Praise to the proletariat.ReplyDelete
Never underestimate the working man.Delete
Well after three weeks away from Blogland I'm now at least going to have to find out what all that is about.ReplyDelete
The water folk are back again digging holes and laying pipes. What for, we're not sure. I'm now hoping that this hole will be their last. My fingers are crossed.Delete
It looks like the water supply for a large sewage treatment plant or abattoir. Nowt to worry about.ReplyDelete
They've now gone for the day, but have left one digger behind. All is reasonably neat, and some bits better than before. There are still a few question marks about what they're actually doing; but it's not really a problem.Delete
Extra drainage for the sewage from your neighbours holiday let's?Delete
If I had a swimming pool in my garden I would have held this morning's Book Group in the warm water - BlissReplyDelete
It was bliss yesterday, and will be bliss again today!Delete
It is great to hear the work men are restoring the property to the original landscape as per your request.ReplyDelete
They've actually left one small area in a better state than it was in before, by using left-over soil to fill a ditch. Now all level and far better.Delete
Is that smoke, steam or something else in the bottom photo?ReplyDelete
They were cutting a hole in the concrete tube thingy, with an angle grinder. It was concrete dust. Not what you want on a stinking hot day.Delete
I'd be wandering over and asking what they are doing and why. I do it here when there are workmen close to my flat. I need to know if what they are doing will impact me or not. Can't be having my water or power unexpectedly turned off.ReplyDelete
