, we didn't go out and not come back - though we've felt like doing so occasionally. We have been sleeping, or in some cases (mine) not sleeping, in our own bed every night. Fortunately the NOISY Broadband Installers knock off around 3-4pm weekdays. Think they might have knocked off around 2pm for this weekend. It was Very Warm.
Mind you, we have been out quite a bit. Even when they'd finished digging up the pavements, bashing them back into place, then digging up the roads, filling them in and thwacking them back, they still insisted in using NOISE to put the concrete edges around things. Concrete - NOISE, for crying out loud? You can mix that much concrete much more quietly with a shovel!
Today they were installing prettilly-shaded purple, narrower-bore trunking. And yes, it involved NOISE. We didn't stick around to ask details. On the hottest day of the year so far we had to venture out into the noonday sun.
I had a blood test appointment at the GP for 11:25am. So left 11am to amble and haul myself over the footbridge across the railway. H says there was level crossing there at one point - complete with Level Crossing Operator with Authority of British Transport Police. So he could arrest anyone idiot enough to try playing chicken with an oncoming train.
That was the century before last, when people were given Authority and everyone else was expected to Act Sensibly. Given the level of Modern General Idiocy, I'm amazed they keep the footbridge! Also very glad. It's a long way round by road.
Pardon? No, it's a routine blood test, while they're doing it they'll be checking everything.
H, who had ventured out earlier to get the weekly shopping, then ambled off up to Copnor to deliver a card and birthday present. But that involved going via the cemetery, which has trees and shade, not to mention open space!
So where else have we been? Oooh, and in no particular order - Emsworth, Petersfield, the market (twice), the Front (twice), B&Q, Tesco (twice), the GP surgery, and Wednesday the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and Arboretum.( Collapse )
There now, think that'll keep you going for another week or so, Dear Reader?
Y'all have a good day now!
