Just wanted to say what nice neighbours we have got. The man next door who works for the brewery as just gave us 30 bottles of Golden Glory beer to say thanks for taking his parcel in. I know nice neighbours are hard to come by. Anyone had a lovely nice neighbour and what did they do?
When we moved in we were planning on getting chickens. We asked our new neighbours on both sides and they were both more excited than we were! They offered to babysit them, cuddle them and clean them out. One of the same neighbours took me to pick up my vomiting daughter at school. They are lovely - gentle folk...
We've got fab neighbours. We are friends and neighbours. Her kids are in my house all the time. DD used to be, but she's 15 now, so it doesn't hold the same excitement for her. Her little boy (5) can't wait to get in my house, when he sees my backdoor open! I love it.
We put each others rubbish out, 'borrow' each others washing lines if necessary, share gravy powder too! Not sure who it belongs to anymore.
I have fab neighbours too - we are not close or in and out each others houses, but when we went on holiday, they fed our cat. When we got home, they had bought a loaf of bread and put a pint of milk in the fridge.
dh and I were saying how lovely our neighbours are the other day. They claim to be 'thrilled' that our chickens regularly escape into their garden and they 'love' having the chickens following them around as they're trying to do the weeding and the chickens do 'a good job' of scrabbling the weeds out when dh and I know the chickens are actually dust bathing with abandon and can trash a garden when they put their minds to it.
Needless to say the neighbours are kept well supplied with eggs!
