Construction has begun on a new industrial building back behind our place. We were notified last week that work was about to begin, and we have been left in no doubt that it has!
The Pile Driver has been working away, hammering in the long steel girders needed for the building to be able to rest on stable ground. It has been quite fascinating watching it at work (what we can see of it), and the power/force of the machine involved is quite incredible.
Our house gets the shivers and shakes each time a pile is thrust into the ground, a result of our soil being so sandy (we are next to the river). But it is taking me a while to get used to the noise – it reminds me of the low jaw-shuddering grinding whine that the old dentist’s drills use to have (thank goodness technology has replaced them!).
We are having typical spring weather at the moment. Sunny one day and rainy the next, but the temperatures are definitely getting warmer and we seldom light the fire in the evening anymore.
May your day be filled with serenity and cheerfulness 😊
