We were sitting here quite contentedly minding our own business when we heard a bang.
It sounded like a heavy door slamming, but we checked outside and could see nothing.
A few moments later, there was a bigger bang, both of us up like a shot to see what was going on. Nothing.
The third one was worrying, and loud, the fourth even louder…….. and apparently closer.
I put my coat on and walked round to the construction site.
Ignorant or what.
Playing with their text phones and swigging from cans, they said they hadn’t heard a thing and pointed me to another guy, who pointed me back to them, and then someone else.
No-one had heard anything.
Angry and feeling foolish, I started to walk home, and overheard raised voices and a revving engine at the junction about 50 yards from the site.
I heard ‘bombs going off’ and hurried home as there was no way I was going to approach the four guys concerned on my own and I wanted to be with Hubby and the dog.
Our neighbour has just received a message on his smartphone from the Police to say the RAF are
playing flying along the coast and dropping 500 pound bombs as an exercise.
At least we know we weren’t hearing things.
As for the guys on the construction site? Obviously they are so intent on ‘thumbing it’, they wouldn’t know about it unless one landed on their heads, and then it would be a bit late.
Should have heeded the doddery old woman’s enquiry.
