Big Bang

Broomview House, Edinburgh, was demolished today. Little Miss Farty used to live there.

Big Bang

Update: The dust has settled and the barriers have come down. Here's a close-up.

Flats

So now you know why they're called "flats". Ho ho ho etc.

John - I can just picture her coming back from the shops with a packet of tea bags - "Where's ma hoose?"

Giggle - You really, really wouldn't want to have lived there.

Update coming up...

I'm always amazed at those professional demolitions guys and how...tidy...they can be when blowing down a building...

Yet another thing that, when settled, has less dust than everything in Bossy's house.

#Debi - I know, I know: that second tower block is just a few yards away and yet all the windows are intact. I want to be a demolition man when I grow up.

BOSSY - The council sent out warning leaflets telling us to close all doors and windows, so we did. Then as soon as it became apparent that we were half-a-mile upwind of the blast, Mrs Farty opened them all again.
Today: "I can't believe there's so much dust over all the furniture!" Doh!
