Peace at last!
I'm feeling mentally exhausted, despite not really having done anything all day but fiddle around online. I couldn't concentrate on anything because there were 4 young men with chainsaws, a cherry picker and a giant shredder taking out a couple of trees that had grown too big for the space in our garden and had become potentially dangerous. What with the noise of the saws and having to keep an eye on what they were doing and popping out every so often to consult, I feel ready for a quiet evening.

I am sad to lose the trees, but it will be nice to have more light. It's a job we've wanted to get done for a couple of years, so it's a relief that the trees are gone before we have any winter storms. The back garden seems so much bigger now and I have a blank canvas to work with.

Current Mood: relieved relieved

Having those trees gone actually sounds like a very nice thing. I can almost feel all that open space!

I have felt your pain. Two days this week marred by neighbors' tile saw action just below my study window.

At least you get something positive for yourself out of your racket. Light around houses is always a Good Thing.
