Bedtime was really 30 min ago but havent bothyered putting PJs on etc as was waiting for drilling to stop, but it is still ongoing. Walls are very thin here, as new neighbours are prob starting to realise!

do you think they heard you over the drilling?

No grin

I'd go around and ask them nicely to stop. Are they friendly?

It's not that late though is it? I mean, if they've been out at work all day, they've only got evenings for DIY?

I'd think you had a point if it was a lot later, but 7 pm is free time for many people!!

YANBU, and I don't buy the argument that it's their free time. If it was workmen drilling, you've have cause for complaint. Same thing here; it's still noise. They just have to fit their noisy DIY at some other time.

Its not that late.
And if it is a one off I would let it go.
If they are new neighours they are prob putting up new shelves., etc
YABU and un-neighbourly

any noise like that by law is suppose to stop at 6pm on weekdays, 12pm on saturdays, and no noise at all on sundays. (council law)

i def wouldnt go so far as to go round and knock, i wouldnt actually ask them to stop was just hinting.........

there did seem to be a pause after i said it, then drilling again, so i read dd 'The Velveteen Rabbit' and it appears to have stopped grin

oops i just realised you may have thought i shouted at the neighbours

i shouted (needlessly) at dcs 'bedtime' knowing neighbours would overhear

does that make me more reasonable?

to be fair have been up since 2am with ds so my syntax is lacking

I think as a way of conveying 'the walls are thin and we have little kids' YANBU at all.
