another morning
listening to the same worksite and their related noises.....excavators, large trucks and other machinery.



this time i am becoming more conditioned to it
and i am going to go out into the yard and watch. NOT......


thanks for the vent yesterday.....

The dust is the worst.

You might recall, Tats, that last year I posted a thread on ATUI called something like "Bob the Builder and his evil chums" describing both the modernisation work in and around my appartment block and the refurbishment project at work. I've been living on a building site for two years, so you have all my sympathy- I know it's hell.

A reminder of memorable dust I have known:


Dust on Fire Control Panel.


Dust on office computer screen.


Dust on office files.


Dust on messroom microwave.

...where I live it's the sound of generators in the Wet season that disturb me. We have a lot of power outages then. Often they last only a few minutes, but within seconds the residents along the street crank up the generators. They're like penis extensions around here, with everyone competing for the 'mine is bigger than yours' award!

yes eddie, i remember very well.


have they finished your upgrades? and are you settled back into your appartment?
i remember you talking about your bookcases being disturbed. how terrible.

the development near me does not impact on us in our house, other than noise and vibrations, and probably dust.

i was just annoyed because it is happening on the allotment that we had to move from.


here in the house we now live in....i am still unpacking.
i have given up to a certain degree, and i have moved the less needed possessions out to the shed in the back yard. that way i can deal with the important stuff here in the house and get to the other stuff later, and i am not falling over the clutter so much.


after all of the fuss i made about having to move....i have a funny feeling now that i really do have too much stuff...... affraid

The refurbishment of my station is complete, except:

1. LU won't give the contractors the extra money needed to get the platform and booking hall dot matrix describer boards (which supply punters with train arrival & departure info) actually functioning which means that we're all standing there staring at a pile of very expensive but useless junk installed at great expence (£7.5 million) and inconvenience.

2. The air-conditioning/heating system in the office and mess room doesn't work properly, almost certainly because of the vast quantity of dust trapped in the internal electrical and mechanical parts when the trunking was being installed. It was hilarious! Management were desperately denying that there was any dust-related Health & Safety issue at Aldgate Tube station- and went so far as to get a functionary down from the Occuptaional Health Dept with a dust meter SIX MONTHS AFTER MOST OF THE WORK WAS COMPLETED to confirm this. Then the air-conditioning/heating system is switched on for the first time...and a great MUSHROOM CLOUD of DUST comes billowing out!!

3. Getting around London at weekends by Tube remains a living hell, with 6 or 7 lines suspended or part-suspended for the great Upgrade project. All well and good if the service was improving as a result, but it's not...it's actually getting worse- and Bob the Builder and his evil chums are draining the LU milch-cow of every drop of money they can while the going's good.

There is absolutely no way this network is going to be ready for the London 2012 Olympic Games. It doesn't work NOW. It couldn't possibly cope with millions of extra punters.

As for my appartment block, the work there is finished- and I must say that all the grief was actually worth it because it looks very swish.

The problem (as with your situation, I think) is that they're constructing new appartment blocks all around mine.
While it's actually quite fascinating to watch how they go about the task- I get a good view of the work from my top (6th)-floor flat, the noise is a bit of a problem. Access too, with pathways and somtimes roads being closed off.

We had an extension done at home in 2009 and the shop refitted because of lease requirements early 2010. It was like living on a bomb site in boith cases . I know how you feel.

thanks blue moon,
my home that i am missing was demolished a couple of months ago, after we were relocated.

no old home to be bound to.




which is why i am disorientated.
the new house is completely different.
everything opens or shuts in the reverse to how it was in the other house
the floor plan is different. the rooms are smaller.
i was in the other house for 17 years.

i am settling in here, but i just have this huge feeling of overwhelmness that would be similiar to sea-sickness.
i feel off balance.

(and it is not because i am stoned, it is because i am home sick.............)



the only way to fix it is ....time. Rolling Eyes

...how awful...it must be unnerving to be forced to leave your home. No wonder you feel overwhelmed. Sad
