Not the Greek God …

I had to get up a little promptly on Friday morning so I set my alarm clock for 7.05am … just to make sure. I woke up and bleary eyed looked at the clock. It was exactly 7am.

Wow, I thought to myself, my biological clock is working rather well!

That’s when I heard it – the most awful, loud, clunking noise emanating from somewhere very close by! So that’s what woke me!

I staggered to the window and peered out - legs! Hairy legs at eye level!

It was one of those Am I dreaming? Is this real? kind of moments.

I just had to get a better look. So I pulled up the blind and risked another peep. Yes. I was right first time. It was a pair of legs - attached to a large cement truck.

Mystery solved! Our neighbours are building an extension to their house.
That’s all very well … but at 7 in the morning? Is that fair?

Not it is not. Although it is very Swiss to be up 'n' at 'em so flamin' early.

Atlas tends to confuse me 'cause he was a Titan not an Olympian. I never really did get straight why the Greeks had two sets of gods like that.

I find it very annoying that construction folk start up with all their associated noise so early in the morning. It can really piss a person off!

That's what I like about you, maggie may. You always look on the bright side!

I don't think they were Swiss, ms mac! Maybe it's just a thing that builders do!

Oh dear utenzi, I didn't realise the whole Greek God thing was so complicated!
