Fire and Brimstone

It was fire and brimstone on the doorstep today as our asphalt footpath was resurfaced by the local council. Coincidentally, we’ve just received our annual rates notice. It’s a bit difficult to complain about the rather enormous rates-hike we’ve just suffered when any telephone call to the local council is going to be drowned out by the din of your-rates-at-work; literally!

And if you’re wondering where your money goes, there it, lined up on the footpath outside your bedroom window at 7.30am. 12 blokes, two diggers, three tip-trucks, a roller-type-thingy and various other bits and pieces.
