My Neighbour is mowing their grass. They have been at it since 8am.
I don't think this is outrageous. It's a good idea to do it before it gets hot.

Two doors down had their children out in the paddling pool last night at nearly 8pm

Out was sweltering. DD was out in her swing at the time, so happy to not be the only ones "out late" :-D

When I got up early this morning to take bins out there was a used condom outside the bathroom door! My daughter and her boyfriend must have put it in the bin in her bedroom and one of the dogs has got it out!

I'm so thankful that they are using contraception.

(Never used a condom in my life so it was a pretty revolting sight!)

Neighbours three doors down were sawing wood for their chimnea thingy at half 11 last night. Didn't bother me.

My MIL did something that to many would be classed as interfering but I didn't mind.

I was woken up at 6.30 by the noise from a class going on at the gym behind my house. I resolved to go in an complain when I got up.
I'm not going to bother now.

My Neighbours burglar alarm went off at 3.30am and I couldn't get back to sleep sad

The same Neighbours have a nicer front garden than me and whilst they are lovely, nice and friendly, I secretly wonder if they're smug that they've got beautiful flowers and nicely manicured grass and we have a few bushes and random plants stuck in some mud hmm

I think I've bought all the clothing and beauty products I'm going to need for the full year ahead. I really like them all and they all seem to co-ordinate with each other. And my bra is a perfect fit.

Took me ages to get to sleep last night and my neighbours woke me slamming their bedroom window shut at 1.30am (thin walls).

I should have been annoyed as I have a big meeting this morning, but it would take a lifetime to repay their patience with our growing family - fretful babies, the tantrum years, door slamming, Stampy on full volume, badly played musical instruments...

Butteredparsnips Tue 19-Jul-16 09:08:25

cheeseandmarmite that may have happened in our house too. Was also glad they are using contraception.

I've just got back from the school run. Most people looked nice. And said good morning.

My MIL came over yesterday. She cleaned my house and did two wash loads. Then she took ds2 upstairs to play in his room so I could have a nap.

I was very grateful.

I saw someone's dog having a wee on some grass in the park, and I wasn't horrified at the thought of a child potentially coming into contact with the wee.

My friend had an argument with her husband and I didn't advise her to leave the bastard.

snorepatrol Tue 19-Jul-16 09:17:03

My neighbour hoovered up at 6am this morning like she does everyday

PokemonGo Tue 19-Jul-16 09:21:17

My neighbors kids play in her garden and we get dozens of balls come over the fence. I throw them back once or twice a day and they always say Thankyou very nicely indeed.

meridithssister Tue 19-Jul-16 09:25:48

My teen works hard at college, pays for his own mobile and occasionally washes up. Should I be worried?

I have just had DD's report. Her teacher has written that she demonstrates considerable confidence in class discussions. I know what she means.

On my last work trip the air hostess asked me very politely if I'd mind moving back three rows so a family of five could sit closer together. I didn't mind at all and it made no difference at all to my comfort levels sitting in a different seat.

I didn't know how to make lasagne. So I googled lasagne recipes.

Mommawoo Tue 19-Jul-16 09:29:26

Mil comes over at least once a month with a black bag of second hand clothes for dd. We literally have enough clothes and shoes for the next two years and I have never bought a new item of clothing for her except a few newborn babygros.

Dp smokes weed and I havent LTB.

LBOCS2 Tue 19-Jul-16 09:31:04

My neighbour vacuums her house at 11pm quite frequently. We're awake anyway so it doesn't occur to me to complain.

GaryGilmoresEyes Tue 19-Jul-16 09:33:01

My neighbours in my last house used to park over my drive every single day. It didn't bother me. I don't drive.

RNBrie Tue 19-Jul-16 09:33:38

My neighbours cut back my hedge on their side yesterday, they've also taken the top off it far lower than I'd have liked. Bit irritated but definitely not shaking with anger or fuming...

I'm back from the school run. No one was wearing pyjamas and no one gave me dirty looks or made passive aggressive comments.

I've now had to park on the next street as the neighbours' builders have blocked my garage with their van, but I can't be bothered to confront them about it seeing as the last three times I've pointed out have had little effect

When I drop DS at kindy, the other mums give me vague smiles and nods of greeting, then scamper off for their day without further interaction in much the same way I do.
