SRS, does your Salvador Dali tableau have any accompanying noise? I guess there would have been some while they were 'trimming' your trees. Probably nothing to compare with the racket outside my door at the moment though.
I was rudely woken this morning to the din of heavy machinery. Earlier in the year, everything was chaos for weeks while huge new gas pipes were being laid. There was a promise that some time in the future they would be back to replace the temporary road patches with a new surface.
That's all very well, but the notification about it happening today only arrived in the letterbox late yesterday (with Friday's date on it), and I had collected mail earlier. So we were totally taken by surprise. My car is in the yard, and I'm wondering if I'll be able to get it out when I need to.
It's been going since about 7 this morning (it's now 11.30am). As I sit here now, there is continuous machinery noise, beeping, flashing lights, and a pneumatic drill just started up - and all just a few feet from where I am sitting.
Talk about transcendental dysfunction! AAAARRRRGGGGGGHHHHH!
