Ok, so I forgot to setup the webcam, and I also forgot to take before pictures. However, I've managed to dig out some old house pics to compare against, so here goes! :o)

Front Door - Before Pic
This is how the front door used to look... you have to imagine the shrub on the left filling the whole of the area to the left of the door.
Front Garden - Before Pic
This is how the front garden used to look. This is an old pic, I've not had that red Astra for nearly two years now!!
Front House - Before Pic
This is how the front of the house used to look. This is also an old pic, as this was taken before we got double glazing installed. Caroline has kindly annotated this image for me. :o)
Front Door - After PicFront Garden - After PicFront House - After Pic
Front Door - After Pic
This is how the front door looked this afternoon. Notice the lack of shrub (save for the little stubby in the corner), and the lack of canopy over the door.
Front Garden - After Pic
This is how the front garden looked this afternoon. Notice the lack of front wall!! Ignore the crap on the lawn... that's going in the skip! :o)
Front House - After Pic
This is how the front of the house looked this afternoon. You can see the difference for yourselves!

Now all you've got to do is get the lorry delivering the skip to drive through the lamp post ;-)

I wish he would, then that would persuade the council that they shouldn't have put the newer lamppost even further over our side! :oP

There'll be more pics this afternoon, hopefully... when the front garden is clear, and the new outside light is up :o)
