The water main in the next street along is being upgraded, by an impressively efficient and cheerful group of contractors.  The work is supposed to last until April, much to the despair of the residents and the joy of all small children in the area.

There are two diggers, a yellow one and an orange (or onginge) one, and one is digging up the road while the other one comes along behind it filling it in again.  Between them are men laying pipes.

Fainjin is unusually enthusiastic about going for walks at the moment… and the walk to school is taking quite a bit longer than it otherwise would!

It’s funny how many other mothers (and their children) we meet on our walks, some of them having made a special detour, but the contractors seem to take their celebrity status in their stride.
