This week's theme was: X is for eXit
They are currently relaying the water main to the cottages on the edge of town. We have two holes on either side of the exit from the parking spaces outside our house, hence the barriers to stop pedestrians falling into them. Also, the blue plastic pipe is temporarily running along the gutter, so they've put those yellow ramps to stop us squashing it flat as we enter and leave.
All this makes exiting our parking space rather more difficult than usual!
