Neighbours noise - who's unreasonable?

My ndn is obviously working an early shift at the moment, she has gone out at 6.30 the last two mornings. Her front door is a few feet away from our (open) bedroom window. Yesterday we were awoken by her banging on her door or window and shouting through to her partner. This morning she woke me shouting at the dog or baby to get back in. I slightly lost it and shouted at her from my window - asking if she could not shout that early - yes I do see the irony of that! I don't think I was rude to her, inappropriate timing?, probably! But she stood and shouted a lot of abuse, including about our music on at 10pm - this has maybe happened twice in the 9 months she's lived here. Which, is about the same amount of times she has had music playing in the evening - which I have no problem with. She had her music thumping out at 7.30am the other week. Her OH manages to leave the house without waking up the neighbourhood! They have a puppy of about 10 weeks that they leave to cry. Rambling now, but trying not to drip feed! Wondering if I ought to apologise for shouting out the winos when she gets home?

Oh - and if you're having people round and are going to have loud music on late, it's good to let the neighbours know in advance. It helps to emphasise that it's a one off.
That said, I haven't felt the need for loud music just because friends are round for many moons now...

Isn't 11pm the cut off for loud music/general loudness and 7am is when you can start being a bit noisy again? I dunno. Either way, follow MissJ's advice and stop making a scene and ask politely if your that arsed.
Or, controversially, shut your bloody window!!

6:30am isn't early. I would't do my garden at that time but I hoovered by living room and kitchen at 6:30am today.
You both sound as bad as each other. If you're concerned about the puppy phone the RSPCA. In future, let neighbours know when you're having parties and loud music at night. And please don't shout at your neighbours out of the window- dreadfully common.

Seriously, I live in a rough area. I sleep with the window open and am often awokened by neighbours screaming arguments and the like. Do you know what I do? Shut the window. Get a fan if it's that hot? Maybe it's you and your neighbour screaming like fish wifes at each other that wakes me up, who knows?
