Left at Fishwick Cross roads for, er, Harare?
A bloggee who lives not a hundred miles from the uncompleted Fishwick Bypass has written as follows
"House nearly completed - palm trees just been transplanted. Trust you feel we have done justice to your "McMansions" epithet!!!
Pool was a bit nippy this a.m. though!....... and we do need a new blade in the lawn mower!
But at least it's a bit warmer than Duns down here in this neck of the woods
A number of images were attached. Wow! Even by Fishwick standards these are high; even dare one say it: OTT. On stilts. I wonder where this pad has been tucked away in leafy Berwickshire. Would Farmer C know?
But wait a moment. The building itself has an old colonial flavour-the exterior not the living rooms I hasten to add-as an Old Colonial myself. Not unlike the former Government House in Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia. Now Harare, Zimbabwe.
Now who would live there now?
Setting a fine example for his people.
