Sandringham Line

Melbourne, Australia

Day 2215. 2 May 2010

I was woken up at 4am on Saturday morning and when I looked out my window I saw a selection of lorries and diggers who were using the back of my car park as the meeting point and were exchanging loads. Later on when I got on the train to the city to get my hair cut I discovered what all the noise was, they had dug up the Sandringham line to improve the track and the beeps were all the diggers reversing.

They had decided to use the nature trail which leads from my car park to get to the train tracks so for the entire weekend they have been bashing and crashing metal and concrete outside my bedroom window. Thankfully I know they have to get it all finished by Monday morning ready for rush hour so I should be able to get a good nights sleep as I have a very busy Monday.

Last night when I got to bed at 3am after Aston Villa gave us all a big scare I was so happy I did not even mind the noise. We now have a massive game on Thursday morning at 5am AEST so I may take the day off work to catch up on some sleep after the game.
