I was fortunate enough as a child to live in a house that had no neighbouring noises. The only noise I could hear occasionally were the sounds of my dad peeing in the upstairs toilet and my dogs howling at night. Ok the dogs howling did get quite annoying, especially at 3 in the morning so sometimes I would yell at them to be quiet, but they were dogs and they didn’t listen.
But many things have changed since then.
But, there were no chocolates and no cakes, the only thing I was welcomed with was horrible noisy noise!
So that’s that then, there is nothing I can do but hope that my 12 month rental contract goes by fast so I can move out.
In the meantime I will laugh over this David Shrigley cartoon, if only I had big enough balls to send my neighbours a copy…
