Things you want to say but can't

I think I was reacting to what Poacher said.  It shows you how things escalate even on-line.  We have sent conciliatory notes to next door asking when we could carry out work at least convenience to him - the police also suggested that to him.  He has not responded.  He also lied about how he behaved when he contacted us.

Anyway think nuff said.   Work completely legal - he can huff and puff but won't blow house down.

Nothing to do with being debt ridden and Bear + Cat are not much of a rabble.  It is to do with fact that flat (single bedroom, single bog) has not been properly redecorated/refurbished since early 1970's, during time heavy smoking, slightly psychopathic first husband managed to wreak a fair bit of internal damage.  No. 2 did his best, but was not very good at interior decoration and as his health deteriorated he became more and more upset at my suggestion that I should employ a professional.

I am one of the first people to have moved into this particular terrace after the condemnation order was changed to a preservation one so that I have over the years had to put up with noise and inconvenience from other houses in the area being 'gentrified' - including that of my complaining neighbour.  This is the first major renovation since then. 

Having ranted I think RicF might have a good idea.  He, his partner + (nice) dog are mightily welcome to squidge into the bedroom - if they can find enough space (full of stored stuff)  whilst Muffin and I shall luxuriate in their 4 storey building - living in the top floors so as to avoid building noise.

What a shame - the handy cavity under the front steps has been bricked up - perhaps I can persuade the builder to unbrick it - for a while.

Dear Neighbour,

Now that was very silly - the police have indeed been called - to deal with you.

No - but it would have if the ancient rewiring had not been replaced!

Dear Neighbour,

I know the building work has been going for some time - but not as long as you claim.  I am really truly sorry - I know it is noisy and disruptive but it is essential.  Threatening me with the police and insulting my builder will not resolve matters.  I hope we can resolve this without further rancour.

Have done survey, but following own experiences have little faith in NHS provision.
