"Hi Folks" A call to the loo brought me from my overnight slumbers after being awakened by the 'Waste disposal vehicle'(garbage cart).
After drinking my traditional glass of filtered and boiled tap water with a blood thinning aspirin I went downstairs, well the first thing I noticed were the tyre tracks over our grassed frontage and the dead spikey branch of bush lemon tree missing, (a deterrent).
**We have new neighbours now since the old bloke next door passed on, they have been here four weeks, Two families and a barking dog, so different from the previous owners who sadly; were quietly dying over the past two years but kept it maintained in good order.
We are now back to picking up pooch poo and annoying items of rubbish of which the two family residents allow to be strewn around theirs and our frontage.
The big problem is there are never fewer than five vehicles parked overnight both in their driveway and both on the road or illegally on the nature strip, and to add to that one of these vehicles could be twelve metres in length. This particular vehicle has been seen carrying road signs and orange coloured witches hats and several times parked back to front on the road which in turn creates a hazard for neighbours when accessing the road. I suppose it would be reasonable to assume that these people have more than a simple affinity to the rules of the road, up to now we have not crossed swords or even spoken to them, I don't intend to however, I have a feeling it could happen.(The Crossed swords part)
Before writing the whinge part of this post** I made nearest and dearest the traditional morning Cuppa, went down stairs again to pick up my delivered paper before it could get stolen again, I then peeled the spuds cleaned the veggies and defrosted the Rump Steak for this evenings DinDin; then shortly after gobbled down my anti cholesterol and high blood pressure tablets and then watered the garden, and they tell me I am retired.
Although the day started with a cool crisp morning it has now turned into a slightly overcast but pleasant day. Nearest and dearest had earlier made plans to do the Big shopping thingy today, I hope I have time for a nod before hitting the road as I feel totally knackered. See you soon. Vest.
