think she had planned something and couldnt get out of it
i'm giving her another week and if baby doesnt settle think i will have to give her notice

There is nothing worse than a screamer as well, It won't help how you are feeling about missing the funeral

neighbour has just been over (used to have her 3 children) and she got a puppy last night and brought it to show me
it is sooooooooooooo cute

When i read the bit about your neighbour coming over, i thought "oh poor thing, the neighbour has complained about the screaming". That's what one of my neighbours did when i had a screamer. But no, it was all about her nice puppy. That would cheer you up a little

she lives across the road next to the church (church is striaght opp us) so hope she didnt hear the crying
baby loved the puppy and hasnt cried since

poor you with your neighbours
