Hole in the Ground

Don’t dig there, dig it elsewhere.

Life is fairly tedious here in the garret today.   I still have a head cold and nasty cough, so I’m feeling pretty miserable.

The weather is miserable too.  Things are supposed to be brightening up, but it’s snowing again, so I don’t much feel like taking a walk today.  Anyway, getting in and of the building means negotiating an obstacle course.  Talk about urban survival skills.

There are a bunch of blokes digging up the footpath right outside my ‘personal’ door.  And, they don’t just make a lot of noise and mess, they dig through telephone cables, broadband cables, water mains, sewage pipes….  eewwww.

Anyhow, I can’t go anywhere because I have no idea where my wallet has got too since I bought a friend a couple of pairs of spectacles on Monday.  No money and no cards.  I need to sort that out today.

On the bright front, I have water again.  Living without water doesn’t just mean no tea, it also means no laundry, and no bathroom.  eewwww again.

And I have phone and internet, so life isn’t all bad.

And Marmaduke gives me a hug at night.

  2. I hope you find your wallet! The amount of digging in lil red is rampant too. Thankfully no disruption of utilities. If the construction workers hit any of our gas, water or eletrical conduits they get slapped with heavy penalties. Take care and stay home with M. May your weather get better soon.🤗🤗

  4. I can’t imagine not having water…oh wait. We didn’t have water for 3 days after the last hurricane so I can! 😀
    I’m glad you have water again. I’m sorry we are still not feeling well. I hope as the day goes, we will both feel better!
