New neighbours

It's official: we have new neighbours. Late last week there were certain bangings going on, and early this week there were definitely signs of something afoot. Then yesterday we had a note through the door from the new owners telling us what was going on. Very nice of them to warn us, in fact, a great start. Judging from their names, one or both, may not be British; in fact they've been so thoughtful in posting the letter, I suspect they definitely aren't from these there isles ;-) Currently there are two workmen clattering about, and I recognise one of them as being one of the people who stood in the garden peering at the roof a few months back. The neighbours themselves are due to move in mid-March. Gulp.

I've been having my 'moving' dream again (where I have to pack quickly and shift, i.e. what I had to do for over a decade in my so-called archaeological career) and I suspect it's buried anxiety about how these new people will behave, and being prepared to move if need be. But as I said, a promising start and if I know they're in, I'll pop round to say hello. Hope they don't both have cars, else we'll never have space to park the hired re-enactment van when we need it. In which case we'll have to join the School of Stupid Parking, if only whilst we load/unload the darn thing ...

Speaking of something afoot, how's your foot these days?

Funny you should say that, actually, after about of year of behaving really well, it's going a bit funny again :-( Not sure why, but I wore heavy socks to keep my feet warm and had trouble after that. Thanks for asking though :-)

I hope you're getting the neighbours from heaven rather than hell (they seem considerate so far from what you've said here). We had the infernal variety some years ago when the house next door was being let to airline cabin crew. Several times a summer they had VERY LOUD parties with all the doors and windows open until 3 or 4 AM which was very inconsiderate -- once we got so cross we called the police who of course didn't want to know. Fortunately, you're unlikely to be afflicted by the peculiar mating habits of trolley dollies where you live.
