As long-time bloggy friends may possibly remember, this was the office building - modern but prize-winning and beautiful inside - where Mr Life worked for some years. It was for sale for a long time and then eventually...
It was sad to see it being destroyed. That was two years ago. The site was then for sale, but with the economy in the state it's in, remained undeveloped.
Until this week. This is what it looked like from the main road when the office was there...
... and this was it today - dumper trucks were adding to that mini-mountain of earth all day. I hope the wall is strong enough to hold it up. There are going to be flats and town-houses on the site. Maybe this is a good sign for the housing market in Edinburgh.
Back home, I enjoyed my little vase of spring flowers from the garden.
I would be tempted to go out into the garden with my trowel but though sunny, it was chilly today.
Son and Daughter-in-Law have been down in London since Friday, staying with Daughter 2 and Son-in-Law 2. The young doctors sat their very final exam on Saturday, in London. It was a practical exam with "patients" who had pretend, but difficult, illnesses and problems. For example, one "patient" wanted an abortion without telling her husband. How is it that my little boy, who a few days ago (it seems to me) was much like Grandson, playing with toy cars and wearing vests that poppered under his nappy, now has to deal with situations like that? - not only in simulation, either.
And in the same blink of an eye, I've become a wrinkly old lady. Hmm.
