Screeech! Bang!

Ah, someone's just crashed outside again...

Deceptive downhill bend and a greasy road. Fortunately they always end up on the opposite side (touch wood)*. This time he took out about a metre of wall/gate pillar for the house opposite and one up from me, and about 1.5m of fencing on the electricity substation that's directly opposite. And he's completely flattened the green metal box that everyone's phone on that side of the street is wired to. Fortunately no one hurt this tiime.

Guess I'll have people working opposite for half the week. I do love the sound of concrete saws in the morning....**

* This is the main road I back onto rather than my street address. We're also elevated several feet above street level, so reasonably safe from anyone ending up in our back gardens.

** Not to mention I've got back ache and rushing upstairs to look out of the window appears to have been contraindicated

I've finally talked to my new neighbour, they only moved-in in October....

But as he says, they work in London and they're never around during the week, at least in daylight. He was putting their rubbish out at the same time as me, so I took the chance to say hello. I initially thought Italian from the accent, and he physically looks like a couple of Italian guys I used to work with, but Polish apparently. It's the usual story of lived in London and moved out to find somewhere they could afford. He was asking about the neighbourhood, so it sounds like they really haven't talked to anyone else in depth.

Maybe I'll get to talk to his wife before winter sets in ;)
