Noisy Night – Noisy Day
If you don’t get a post later on with pictures of our day it will be because I have fallen asleep!
I got to bed around 23:15 and was just drifting off when I could hear vehicles, voices and footsteps outside. Because of the pressure on my ear I had to turn my head to hear better and just thought it was the young lad next door having some of his noisy mates drop him home a bit late, which made me grumpy but nothing to be done about it so I dozed back off.
Eventually I had to get up for a wee and there at 01:06 the noise was still going on. I looked through a gap in the blinds and could see my rowan tree lit up an eerie blue. When I got up to look there was a fire engine (with it’s engine running to pump water) to the right along the road and a police car with it’s blue lights on sat in the bus stop to the left. The voices were because a fireman was stood at the hydrant in the road where the hoses were connected and colleagues needed to speak to him plus their radios were chattering.
I could see where the fire was in the wee road just along from us. At just around 02:00, just as I was about to make a hot drink, that fire engine left so I tried to settle again for sleep. It was sometime later when I heard another fire engine leave but there was still some noise outside and the last time I was aware of was seeing the alarm clock flashing and realising the power had gone off and come back on. I found my iPhone and reset the clock at 03:22.
When I came to the computer the power outage had confused the router so it took me an hour of plugging/unplugging and rebooting to get that working again … just as the stated digging the pavement up to install next door’s new gas supply.
So between pneumatic drills, a fuzzy ear and queues of vehicles waiting to pass the workman it is not a quiet environment in our house today! Happy Monday.
