Men with road working equipment have been parked outside our house. As the street surface is the worst I have ever seen in an urban environment, surely anything they do has to be a good thing, right?
Except that I am a pessimistic cynic, and also, we (or the mortgage) own part of the road, it is on the deeds. I don't want an unexpected bill.
Well, working noises are happening but not directly outside, so we shall see what we shall see.
