This is how it looks at the back of our house at the moment:
And like this:
They are doing some kind of road work on the gravel road that leads down to the houses behind us, or maybe they are just fixing the drains, or maybe both..? We're not quite sure.
All we know is that's it's been going on already for a couple of weeks and it's probably going to take quite a few more. The workers are here from 7 in the morning until 7 at night - 7 days a week, and it's NOISY!!!
Not only are they noisy themselves with their big machines, but the dogs go crazy at all these workers coming and going all the time; and with work going on 7 days a week, we never get a rest from the endless racket.
Hopefully they will make a nice new road and it'll all be worth it, although we never really use that part of it... *Sigh*
