Water, water, everywhere

It’s been a wet couple of days here, the rain just keeps coming down.  And then while we were out and about today we spotted this, even more water.  A water spout down the street – looks like the workmen hit the pipes.  There is a whole lot of work being done down this road, digging up the footpaths, replacing pipes, re-laying the concrete paths.  And in the middle of it today we saw not one, but two spouts of water erupting.

The contractor doing all the concrete work down the street is coming to do a small job at our new house. He called around today with one of his workers to show him what needed doing.  “How are you going on your big job down the road?”, I asked him.  He’s got enough work from the local council to last him 2 years, was his reply.  Luckily, we won’t have to wait till then before we get our own small job done.  He expects to be up our way any day now – weather dependant, we suppose.  So hopefully, we will soon have a path laid, and a pad for under the clothesline in the back yard.  Once this is done Robin can move the clothesline to its new position, and  finally get a shed.  We are also getting concrete laid in the area outside our dining room where we can sit and have BBQs in a few months time.  The shortest day is coming up fast, then it will count down to summer.
