Noisy Tuesday

I awoke this morning to a knock at the door....the concreters were here to start work...it was 8am and I was trying to pretend the day had started!!!! Since then we have had one lot of noise after another......good noise I suppose......
Interesting day today, is quite warm  but trying to rain and the north wind is gusting and making waves....

...came home to this in the front yard......

...this at the side of the house......

the guys working flat out down the back...one was running backwards and forward with the concrete in a wheelbarrow! Phew...I got tired just watching him!!!

....the supervisor is checking out the shopping......

the pohutukawa tree at the side of the house is in flower....this usually happens in November in NZ I think, so not quite sure what is happening here...usually it is a sign of how hot and long summer is going to be.....maybe that is only in NZ....or maybe that was just one of my Dad's stories!!

The supervisor has his bone and is happy for now.....

the guys are still working hard......

David and Peter are putting in a paved area at the other side of the house.....

and after a little domestic work I am going to make a cuppa and get to the binding on this quilt.
Happy sewing.

Supervising and watching sounds like a very good choice! Exciting to see plans take shape.

Whew! I am now exhausted just reading that lol. I hate noise, drives me almost insane. We have had building going on here in this area for years without much of a break. Good to see you have given your supervisor a treat. Hope things are coming along nicely.

Very exciting to be getting the work done around your place! Good to see a Pohutakawa at your place! I'm not sure about the flowering now though!!
