Before I moved house, around October time last year, if I were ever to decide to have a lay-in there would be a pneumatic drill being used within fifty metres of my house until I got up. Every. Single. Time. There were a lot of roadworks on that junction because this is something that I try to do quite often
Today, I was painting until half past four in the morning, but the road outside my house is fine, so no pneumatic drills for me, nope. I get a guy with a chainsaw taking two hours to demolish a tree. So, I eventually get up with a headache and feeling grumpy and get to work in the tiny office that I have, which is in the front of my house. I sigh and feel pleased that at least I'm away from the chainsaw weilding maniac (you've got to be mad to be working with chainsaws, halfway up a tree before ten in the morning).
I relax and find the traffic noise a nice change. Until it starts. The bloomin' wood-chipper! Aaaaargh! So now I've got a wood-chipper owning (you can't really 'wield' a wood-chipper) maniac out in front of my house, deliberately being noisy and trying to give me a headache. One day they'll make a film out of this morning and it will be called 'The Winchester Wood-Chipper Massacre'.
And my back aches lots because our matress is awful, so things so far are not going very well.
Otherwise I'm fine
How's everyone else today?
