I'm having a little landscaping done because the place looked a bit of a disaster. They came with a Bobcat today and leveled the front garden a bit and dumped a bunch of topsoil about. I have flower-beds which will soon contain actual flowers. It's quite exciting.
The mailboxes for this end of the street are on the edge of my property. They decided to pick them up and move them so they wouldn't be in the way. My neighbors were a bit upset about this and within 15 minutes about 10 people complained to the Post Office (what are all these people doing in the middle of the day?). The Post Office sent somebody round to see if we were going to put the mailboxes back but didn't seem too bothered. Then when I got home the Postmistress came to visit. She turned out to be a very nice lady. I think they prefer that you ask before you go near mailboxes with forklifts.
