It's beautiful and sunny here today, although I haven't been able to enjoy it as I would have liked to as I had to go into work this morning and then I had the joys of food shopping with Mother. Now I don't mind being with my Mother but I just hate food shopping and having to think of what to eat for the next week - I find it difficult enough thinking what to eat each day let alone a week's worth of meals.
I'm going to sit down now and do a little bit of knitting before heading off to No1 son's house for tea, where I will be able to enjoy our two other grandchildren Connor and Elisha for a few hours. Hopefully Connor is feeling better today as he was suffering from a cold yesterday.
Earlier in the week they started digging up the paths along are road to cut back some of the treat roots that were damaging the pats and were blocking off the ends of the road apart from access to residents. When I came home from work Monday I had to drive over the corner pavement to be able to gain access to the road as someone had thought it a good idea to move the barriers right across the road. Yesterday when I got home from work they had parked across our driveway and blocked off even pedestrian access to our house - I just walked passed the barrier - the workman gave me a look and I just told him it was my house. Today I come home to find that they had relaid the path but had put cones and barriers partway across our drive - as you can imagine they have been moved onto their tarmac which should have set by then and parked my car. It wouldn't have been so bad if we'd had some sort of notification it was going to take place but we hadn't. I wonder what tomorrow will bring - I don't have to go into work until almost midday so it will be interesting to see if I can even get out of our drive.
Gosh I've ranted and raved about things this week - must be all the early mornings getting to me - ha!
