Sorry, another whinging post. I do have English Ancestors, so perhaps I am genetically prone to whinge.
I apologise to all my English Ancestors and Friends, as I don't really believe they whinge any more than the rest of us.
We received a letter from our local council, informing us our address was to be changed. We live on a corner block and our ACTUAL address is not able to be accessed, because of the state of the road frontage. See above!
This photo is of the 4 foot ditch, plus crumbling road, which represents our REAL address.
It is a disgusting open ditch, which runs full of water when it rains.
Our entrance is on another street, which means we have to climb stairs to access the inside of our living are. The letter we received from Council informed us that the change of address would enable mail, deliveries, visitors and Emergency Services to locate our property quickly and accurately.
All I can say is B*ll Sh!t!! We have lived here for 12 years, with no lost visitors, deliveries, or mail, etc.
My argument is, if they fixed our road, as they have been promising us for the past 12 years, we would have no problems at all.
Now that Gom is ill, he can no longer attend to the weeds growing in the Council's bl**dy deep ditch. Nor could an ambulance access our home, without difficulty, since our 'other' address involves the use of awkward stairs.
We are strenuously opposing a change of address. We pay our
Several of our neighbours in this street are hoping the proposed improvements eventuate. Some have been promised they will be able to install driveways--- at last, after 14 years of promises.
I do believe our local Council is one of the most complained about, in the whole of New South Wales. The peccadillos of various Council Members do nothing to inspire confidence!!
Infuriated letter writing has begun!
In other news, how gorgeous is this! My Loved Cousin's Ark. I think it is brilliant.
Our Son came to stay for five days. It was lovely to have him, and I know his father got a health benefit from the visit.
I have also spent a huge amount of time watching this Live Barn Owl nesting box. http://www.sportsmansparadiseonline.com/Live_Owl_Nest_Box_Cam.html.
I am so fascinated by Owls, I keep going back for updates. The whole website had provided me with wonderful windows into other birds nests, also. I loved the little Bluebird. Her five blue eggs, then hatched to her little babies, with open mouths, begging for food.
Gom really is not travelling well. He has better days, and some really, dismal, less than good days. There are many health issues to be dealt with, but we do the best we can.
The wall climbing exercises are all mine! I should be extra fit now. But, who wants to climb walls??
