Celebration time

Here is this week's contribution to the Celebrate the Small Things bloghop.

There has been a gang in our road all week 'surface dressing', courtesy of the delightfully named Manly Company - I kid you not - so we have been playing musical parking spaces with our neighbours. It looks as though they have finished for the week, although they will have to return in due course to repaint all the white lines. This has proved a welcome distraction in an otherwise mundane week, and I have been spending far longer than is probably good for me gazing out of the bedroom window watching as one chunky machine after another has stripped and then replaced the Tarmac.
Much pondering.

To my untrained eye, it looked as though they had filled in all the drains (which have themselves only just been replaced), but no! Once the new surface was in place, the men lifted what seemed to be (again, to my untrained eye) carpet tiles, so all was well beneath.
Best not overdo it.
My husband's cold has gone and although he hasn't passed it to me in the same form, there has been something odd going on with my ears for the last few days that left me with what I can only describe as a feeling of 'looking on'. (Mum, if you're reading this, you'll know what I mean!) Anyway, I'm feeling much better today. I might even venture out this evening for a swift half.

Have a great weekend, folks.

Join in the bloghop every Friday and celebrate something large or small. See Lexa's blog for details  or check out co-hosts L.G. Keltner at Writing Off The Edge

  1. I get that "looking-on" feeling every Sunday around 5.00pm.

  2. "Manly Company"! Too funny! I'm glad they entertained you (though fewer clothes would be more entertaining) and that you're feeling a bit better. Have a wonderful weekend! :)

  3. Glad you are on the mend! It's funny that you found the construction so entertaining. I like watching people build things and paint things, which is strange, I know! Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Indeed, especially when it's something I know I can't do and there's no risk of being asked to help out.

    1. They're back again today - more reasons to procrastinate, Wendy.

  7. Glad they're at least entertaining you, Julia, as it must be very frustrating!

    1. They've been pretty good considering, Rosemary, but I'll be glad when they've finished.
