Demolition (D) day one


Well, just look at that, seems we now have an outside bathroom beside Soggibottom, if anyone walking past on their way to the park needs to quickly nip in.. please make sure you wash your hands, but I'm not sure about a flush.


 Here it is in all it's glory.
Things on day one haven't gone well, not at all according to plan to demolish the cottage next door to Soggibottom.

No scaffolding as yet, maybe the railway behind this wall and also close to the soon to be demolished cottage weren't keen on the scaffolding idea.

Or maybe the posse of Parish Councillors that arrived for an on site meeting have complained.
There is nothing more Parish Councillors love to do, apart from go to sleep at their parish council meetings. .( Strange if you need hard hats Mr Councillor, we have been walking past this monstrosity of a derelict cottage along with half of the village for over er, let me see... eight years. )What ever the reason is, no work on day one apart from the new creature feature on the way to the park..

Day one, all a bit of a let down....


At least we were able to finish some painting and outside repairs today. Not sure how much longer this wall will look brilliant white.


I even found one of my old mosaic mirrors in the attic that I had forgotten all about.


This one unfortunately had been taken off the wall way back at the beginning of last October... left beside the wall on the ground, so the wall could be painted. As most know without me repeating anything about floods, like other things it got a bit wet. It still needs slight repair, but it's safe enough. I used beach glass and shells. It's always been outside on the wall, now it's back in place again.


 Apart from knitting frogs and ducks, that's all there is to report for today...
Normality on the comments page. Although I have had to put in a slight moderation because of spammers. As normal feel free to comment. Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my last post. I'm still intent on blogging every day when possible over the next few weeks. At least three weeks, or four, or five or six... 

See you all tomorrow.....

I love the mirrors and gargoyles on the wall. Are they planning to build something else next door when the cottage is gone or will you have some extra green space?

A potty right next to your house, I guess it's sort of like an outhouse. Too funny.

I just "HEART" your blog, it's photos and all that you write about.

Well, one good thing: If "YOUR" toilet plugs up, you won't have far to walk to "go".

LOL

Now that is not a site you want to see out your back door, especially with spring coming, lol. The painting looks nice and wonderful touches to decorate with.

There are various names for those outdoor toilets here. One is "Johnny on the Job." Flush, OK but definitely no hand washing. Must carry sanitizing liquid at all times. I do hope your wall and the mirrors survive the demolition. Ducky and froggy are adorable.
