Bob & Barney say it with flowers...

...for the inconvenience of building more houses on our estate on the edge of Bury St Edmunds. I suppose they have a lot to apologise for...hmmm...

...Let's start with the daily alarm call caused by the drone of machinery at 7.00am...then there are the lorries reversing down the main road and the gasp as they almost bump the odd car here and there...not to mention the silly positioning of a new side-road, right next to a zebra-crossing outside the local school.

...but let's look on the bright side.




Call me a cheapskate, but with a ringside seat and a great view of our very own diggerland, that's a bit of a crowd pleaser (and yes...my youngest has even insisted on pitching up with his camping chair right next to the fence to show his appreciation).

Heh heh


Miss M is a little frightened of diggers at the moment.
Thank God your boys aren't or it would be a nightmare.
Hope it's all over soon.
Nice touch with the 'sorry' sign.
I've never seen one of those before.

Hi Jo - Shame about Miss M being frightened of diggers, what about tractors are they any better? I guess we've got this entertainment laid on for about 12-18 months now - should keep us occupied. :-D

LOL, i love free entertainment, Sheffield mini airport is at the bottom of our garden (well nearly) the only thing that lands really is police helicopters but they are a great source of entertainment. I have to pick billy up and point everytime one goes over and now he come running to be picked up to point, he can even hear them it the house, how i dont know!

Wow em - helicopters, that beats diggers any day. There is an airfield near us which has an airshow or other kind of activity a few times a year, so we always look out for that, but don't get a great view. Before children, we lived in a flat that overlooked a canal. For the first two weeks, we used to run to the window every time a boat chugged past. The kids would have loved that. We could even feed the ducks, by throwing bread out of the window. Yep, it's a big thumbs up for free entertainment around our way.
