    Yes to all of those! šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ Still grumpy, Jude?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Headachey! Constant banging and drilling from the neighbours who seem to be having their entire house renovated!

      1. BeckyB says:

        oh no, that’s horrid when there are works happening next door. I can sympathise and empathise after 7 years with our neighbours

        1. Heyjude says:

          Hopefully this won’t go on for 7 years!

        2. BeckyB says:

          Sure it won’t with a youngster xxxx

        3. Heyjude says:

          Chainsaw this morning!!

        4. BeckyB says:

          ugh, that’s a horrid noise. Hope at least they give you the weekends off

    2. Heyjude says:

      But I got my hair cut on Monday so one less irritation šŸ‘Œ

      1. Joanne Sisco says:

        Iā€™m so jealous. I was supposed to get my hair cut yesterday – the first time since February. But then the night before my hairdresser of 20 years fell and broke both her shoulder and wrist šŸ˜Ÿ Unless I get over the horror of someone else messing with my hair, it might be a looong time before I get a cut again :/

        1. Heyjude says:

          Yikes! That sounds bad. I think you’ll have to get over it unless you want hair down to your bum šŸ˜‚

        2. Joanne Sisco says:

          Right now I look like a sheepdog … and not in a cute and cuddly way either. I think you’re right. I’m going to have to trust someone new with my hair šŸ„ŗ

        3. Heyjude says:

          My hair is naturally curly too and although I didn’t mind the length it was the frizz that was driving me mad!

        4. Joanne Sisco says:

          I have the frizz without the natural curl. It’s not a great look šŸ™„

  2. BeckyB says:

    oh yes these are so true . . . think I need to remind my siblings of some of these!!

    1. Suzanne says:

      Crikey, do we come from the same paddock?

      1. BeckyB says:

        oh yikes do you have problems too with yours. Families can be hard work sometimes can’t they

        1. Suzanne says:

          Yep, especially when overseas and we’re dealing with elderly parents. They seem to be experts on what’s going on. I’m finding avoidence works when my patience is at a low ebb!!

        2. BeckyB says:

          oh this sounds so so familiar. We went through challenges like this only a couple of years ago. Sending huge hugs

  3. Su Leslie says:

    Hope the headaches ease. I think I should send my neighbours the big sign.

    1. Heyjude says:

      He certainly owes us a bottle of good wine! It’s been going on all summer so affects sitting outside on a nice day.

      1. Su Leslie says:

        šŸ˜¦ I hope he comes good on the wine, though it sounds like that would be fairly small recompense for the noise. When our neighbours renovated it took forever because they fell out with the builder and things got quite nasty. We had construction noise during the day, and shouting in the evenings.

    Rules to live by indeed. šŸ™‚
    Whe our new neighbour moved in, she had literally everything replaced, except the roof. Almost eight months of drilling and banging that only stopped last Saturday. Fortunately, we are detached, but it is still irritating in the extreme. At least she is a nice lady!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      This is next door but one, but we are all attached and drilling through granite is not easy! They are a lovely family and had a new baby in January so needed to reconfigure the upstairs but they are also adding a conservatory by the looks of it. I’m sure it will be very nice, but it’s spoiled being in the garden this summer.

  5. All so true. Sorry to hear about the ongoing construction and the resulting headaches! Hope it all ends peacefully! šŸ™‚

  6. Sandra says:

    Having all that noise and disruption in a summer when we are more constrained than usual is a tough ask. Sounds like one big headache šŸ˜– Hope you find a bit of peace and quiet somewhere šŸ¤ž

  7. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    I love those family rules. When kids were younger we used to have a list of family rules hung in the utility room.

  8. I love the haphazard arrangement of cards in the window, it seems very appropriate that Party to the Max has fallen over!

let's have a conversation...
