Demolition (D) day three

Day three, it seems to be going slowly, but the cottage next door is starting to be demolished. I have to thank the demolition crew for not waking me too early this morning.

The other side of the cottage. The wall between the children's play park has now gone, beside the wall there were Hazel trees sparrows used to nest in. Not sure where they are going to go this year. The thought is when every thing calms down, maybe we can put up more and more bird houses for them all.

With all the extra activity around, it all seems terribly interesting. It also seems so sad to see this 200 year old cottage slowly disappearing.

We have a saying at Soggibottom cottage at the moment, "beware of men with yellow coats".
They are everywhere, no escaping the sound of machinery along the main road.

We did escape today, Freya can be found over at the CAT FLAP CAVALIER feeding the swans at Exeter Quay.
The tomato seeds I planted a few days ago have already started to sprout. Maybe the noise has woken them early.

I thought it wise to keep everyone updated about them especially Caroline. I'm not going to be too big headed, last year all my new tomato seedlings died off and I had to reseed them.

Something that has been constructive today,   Marley Wynn's new slippers.
See you all tomorrow......

It is sad that they took the trees too.
Nice that you could get out for awhile and funny how the babies are watching out of the window, together.

Poor cottage and birdies and trees!

Yay for your tomato seeds!!! Go, go,go!!!

Take care

Awww, cute slippers.
I really don't like the noise of construciton - or in your case, de-construciton. Looks like the place to be is at the window.

200 years? Is that all? No wonder they are tearing it down with no regard!
I do hope that the one good thing to come out of this is that Soggibottom won't be so soggy in the bottom in the future!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

The slippers are sooo cute. Did you make them?
We think its a very good idea to make bird houses for the birds. And also its good the birds had not already moved into the trees.
I see a brave little tomatoe seed peeping out of a pot!
the old cottage rest in peace
love tweedles

Hope all is going well. Some of our tomato seedlings are looking a bit limp, still time to sow some more. We've got a frost here this morning. xx

We think it's very sad that a cottage of 200 years has to be destroyed.
We love seeing your tomato seeds sprouted!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Freya and Frankie, you two stay inside where you're safe and watch from the window. It would be much too tempting to go supervise the job.

Well, all this is sort of exciting for me as I'm just now getting back into bear making after a long personal hiatus & I was looking online to buy disks & cotter pins for jointing.That search brought me to your blog! I'm in the US, outside of Philadelphia PA, but I have a very close friend who lives in South Cerney UK & she too has an old cottage. I'm always so envious of her & her beautiful 300 year old stone cottage. It's funny tho' because she is envious of me & my modern house...far fields look greener I suppose. Anyway I'm looking forward to watching your blog, demolitions, teddies etc. Why is the cottage next to you being demolished? Will something else be going there? Yes, too many questions I suppose...sorry. Oh! And my friend also has a cat & dog...kitty is Tinkerbelle & her Dog Summer is also a King Charles Cavalier. What a small world sometimes.
I love your bear!!!
