This afternoon a ‘for sale’ board went up outside our new neighbours house. After giving us a year of hell demolishing the house from within, they are now selling up.
To be honest it doesn’t surprise me as they seemed a couple who had no intention of staying in one place for very long.
In their short period in Neale Street they haven’t gone out of their way to be friendly. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve had a smile or a hello from either of them. We didn’t even get a Christmas card from them ! ! !
So here are some of the things I won’t be missing when they leave.
The herd of elephants running up and down the stairs.
Him coughing his guts up when he has a shower first thing in a morning.
Bob and Mrs Builder (her mam and dad) always arguing when they come on a Thursday to do the housework.
Bob and Mrs Builder arguing when they come to drop off the ironing.
Bob and Mrs Builder arguing anytime they come.
Their every meal from the microwave. No matter what they have it always takes eight minutes to cook.
Her car remote setting off our phantom door bell.
Their horrendous car parking.
Their slamming of doors.
Bob the Builders fetish with power tools and making a lot of noise.
Wonder how long it’ll take for them to move out….
