Here are a few pictures of the change so far.
In this first picture you can see how it was before, looking from my house. All the houses in the background have now been torn down.
And a sprint picture from a similar angle. That white house is to the left of the line of four in the first picture. All this (except the white house) is now soil and concrete.
My cat, Miffy, might not appear too disgruntled, but I can assure you she is.
The trees and vegetation has all been scrapped away and now they're preparing the land to put in big lumps of concrete. That little house with the red roof is where I live. Neither writing nor teaching are making me, the wife and the cat rich, but I enjoy both. It belongs to my school.
The digger shows up.
And the destruction begins. All these houses are coming down so they can build an access road. No idea where all the tenants went.
And the current state of play. The houses are gone and they're putting in drainage ditches or whatever they're called.
They're making a ton of noise outside as I write this. I'll post some more pictures in a few days.
