... the road surfacing was finished. The trucks vanished. Peace descended.
Except... there was still some noise, a kind of banging. Not outside our house directly, though. People often seem to make that kind of noise in the afternoon so I thought little of it.
Then I noticed that our mains water was off. Odd. It happens occasionally, but usually in a mid-week morning, not a Friday afternoon.
Then I took a rubbish sack out, since Saturday's one of the days when the dustmen come. Just at the end of our street, I saw another digger... and, apparently, part of the road being dug up all over again!
When Tim got back from a youth band practice, he said it looked as if a water pipe had been broken in the resurfacing process. There were men frantically trying to bail water out of a hole...
(slight camera shake but I didn't want to make it too obvious I was taking the picture so I only took one)
Only in Cyprus...
