In my last post in honour of Lion's birthday, I included a pic of a little Lion watching the heavy machinery in my street a few years ago. It was strangely prophetic. . .
Today Lion and Dragon have their birthday party for their mates. Last week was the family birthday party. They live in the cul de sac of a longish street. Two days before their birthday party the city council decided to dig up most of the street in order to replace the road surface. The road had been so poorly made in the first place that they have removed at least 50 cm deep from the surface of their road and several surrounding roads.
The result - Mums (and/or Dads) with little kids and toteing birthday gifts became confused due to "ROAD CLOSED" signs and have had to walk some distance. Aunty with twins expected in a few months also had to walk with panicy hysterical toddler in tow (possibly upset by the machinery noise?).
Thank you City Council. Great timing!
Naturally it decided to rain today too, for the first time in months.
At least we won't blame the City Council for that.
Happy 18th Birthday William!
