Daily Photo of the Day : hoop-la!

Once again, the main route near which our road lies was closed for the weekend; it's really rather odd that it's taken so long to do (three weekends so far!) since it seems they've just increased the size of the roundabout (see before/after shots below) and resurfaced the roadway either side of it.

At various times during the past days there's been a loud, insistent whirring - much like a vacuum cleaner - so Lenni, Chris and I decided to investigate. It seems that, once the asphalt/tarmac has been laid, it needs to be cleaned, and a road sweeper made a slow pilgrimage from one end of the recently laid patch to the other.

The children enjoyed watching from the top of the footbridge - but work stopped briefly for tea, and I managed to capture this rather entertaining photo. Now we know what road maintenance workers do during their break!
