snoepjeskast – or why I don’t seem to be able to loose any weight…

On Flickr there are loads of groups – depending on interest and such like – one is the Monthly Scavenger Hunt – or the MSH for short. Every month you need to find 20 subjects, photograph them, and post them to the group. One of the subjects this month was ‘Evil’. I was really stumped there. My life is rather evilfree lately (touch wood!) and I just couldn’t find any inspiration. Until I got hungerpangs (or ‘goesting’ as we call it in flemish) and opened our sweets cabinet… and then inspiration struck. I should put a lock on it – but then it all goes to waste, and that would be evil too, no?

If you’re wondering what all the stuff is, click on the picture – in Flickr you can attach notes and that’s where it’s all explained…

Hmmm… I think I’ll have a frangipane, no, a waffle, no, a packet of penny wafers… Oh what the heck, I’ll have the last bar of chocolate – I’ll eat it with two slices of bread to diminish the sin…


Done and dusted

You can hardly see anything happened – give the sun another hour and it will just be a memory…

Well, it did make my blog go off with a bang 😀

After cleaning the street, they even watered the replaced plants…

They cleaned the whole bit where they worked so as not to leave any mud, for safety reasons. The even watered the plants they replanted – don’t know if they’re going to grow again, but it certainly is the thought that counts 🙂

Uploading the big stone saw – I kept well out of reach!

They’re almost done – packing up their stuff after a morning hard work…

Lunchbreak 🙂

There was loads of exciting bits inbetween – just go and check in Flickr – otherwise you will have to scroll until you’re blue in the face 😉

And yes, I did bring them some drinks inbetween – poor guys – can’t have them completely dehydrated!

A big lorry with a small bulldozer just came round for a look-see. They will have to break up the street and remove a bit of the hedge too, to check if there isn’t any subsidence. As our side of the street still has water, he advised me to better stock up a few buckets to be on the safe side. It could well be we’re without water later on 😦

I’ll keep you posted!

sand – the crack in the street is where the ‘springs’ were

And as our house was just across, they probably didn’t want to take any chances – luckily we don’t have a cellar, so no worries after all…

You can find the rest of the pics on Flickr 🙂
