Chainsaw and tree shredder. Our neighbours had a complaint about  a tree in their garden last year. Today the council has sent lumberjacks.

They won't be culling the leylandii (spit) though.  :'(

Birds twittering in the trees at the back of our garden. Lovely sound - we used to miss that in Ashford - there, ours was the only garden with trees in it, and they were only small trees at that!

Here, we get a medley of different birds - starlings, magpies, tits, wood pigeons, house sparrows, swallows (they aren't actually in the trees, they are under the eaves!) - heard a cuckoo nearby last week!! - and we get nightingales in the evenings, too!  :D

Oddly enough, not seen any finches here though.  :-\ Neighbour in the flat downstairs doesn't just have a bird table - she has a banquet!!

Had to turn the tele off cos we have car racing on one side and football on the other and when they finish, they will probably have rugby on. I have no problems with it on . Loads love sport but some of us just don't. Some of us would quite like it if they had something decent as an alternative  . All the cable channels are on yet another set of adverts with a set of back to back trash on five minute intervals .

Jackhammers at dawn for a water main repair, then jackhammers since 8 for a neighbour's drive replacement.

A whole front garden of crazy paving being ripped-up, around 150 square metres.

The boss turned up a little while ago and started screaming at the workers.

"We didn't contract to do all that! 4 lorry loads of spoil already and you're not even removed half of it!"

He obviously didn't know the history of the place:

The council put in concrete driveways in all the local council houses in the late 60's. The owner of the house in question would not get a free driveway, so he stripped all the topsoil out front and moved it out back.

Then all waste concrete after each pour was dumped in his garden.

About a foot deep, but very rough surface, so he laid crazy paving over the lot.

I reckon about 50 cubic metres of concrete, plus all the crazy paving. And then it all has be be backfilled with 50 cubic metres of subbase.

And it's a fixed contract, not a quote.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

The council noise control office called. She had called the house in question, but the grandmother denied knowing about any car at all.

So I was called back and I explained the situation further (it's her "son" who is actually the father of 2 of her grandchildren who live there with their mother).

She called them again and the grandmother admitted it was one of the many cars he has parked around here, part of his "car repair service" but he was "away" and she had no keys. She refused to give his home address (I think he sleeps in the 20 seater van parked in their front garden) but eventually gave his mobile number. He said that he was on his way back to Cardiff and would silence the alarm.

He was warned that if a Noise Control Officer is called out, he would be billed "hundreds of pounds". That should concentrate his mind.

Chainsaws. Elderly neighbours received letters from 2 homes behind them about their Leylandii "hedge". 3 metres higher than the roof tops, and I have been warning them for years. Rather than end up being done under The High Hedges Law, they have borrowed money to have them reduced... a lot.

All the debris has to come through their kitchen extension, and she's very house proud.

Hummmph water was slowing going between the bath and wall, then under the bath and collected over the kitchen bloody cupboards.  We had to have the ceiling renewed  :'(
I taped the shower head to the holder after that so she couldn't turn it .

A warbling house alarm sounding from about 5pm to after midnight last night. The double glazing didn't even baffle it....

I boarded a bus in the city centre to travel all the way out again to get to a Sainsburys.

A gang got on making a fuss.

"I hope you've got your sexy knickers on today!"

"Gis a kiss darlin' "

"Get on a move on, I'm dying for a fag!"

"Me I'm dying for a piss, 3 pints at lunchtime was a mistake".

"Stuff your bloody mobile, I want to have a chat".

"I bet you move quick in bed, you look like a right tart".

On-and-on all the way to Sainsburys where they got off too. I could hear them as I did my shopping.

Chavvy kids?

Nope.

Pensioners!!!  :o :o :o :o

The council has a rented bin truck that squeals when they use the compressor, and they use the compressor a lot. It started at 7:20 and went on-and-on-and -on for ages.

Someone was setting off those large packs of fireworks in the field below the flats we lived in. Most of the explosions were happening right outside the windows

Police turned up, but the people had run off.

Police left and the fireworks started again.

Police came back, and they had run off again.

Police left and the fireworks started again.

I could hear shouting from over there so perhaps someone got too upset....

It was the distraught father of this guy, trying to get his spirit to return. We passed the tribute display just after dark yesterday, right next to the bench where he and his mates hung around annoying local residents.

Across the road, tree fellers are cutting branches and chipping them. The council won't allow the one outside our home to be touched at all. But BT have the right to clear branches away from their overhead telephone lines.

WOOHOO! An official-looking bod came to our door asking if the street tree caused us any grief. Oh yes, pollen storms, fallen catkins blocking drains, honeydew from Spring to Autumn, then leaves blocking drains and making the pavements slippery.

He noted it all down, then gave the tree fellers the nod. 10 minutes later the canopy had been raised by at least 8 feet.

And a "systemic" treatment will be used to control the aphids in a couple of weeks.

Last evening was odd.

One side was raucous female laughter for about 4 hours. 3 or more women on the bevvy in the garden.

One the other side was choral singing for a few hours. I thought it was a recording, but around 9pm 30+ people came out of the house and went off on foot, bikes, cars and taxis. A god-botherer choir.
