A couple of years ago the house next door sold. They moved in, ripped up the front yard and replaced it with concrete and…well, that’s about it. We never heard or caught site of them and save for a light being on around the clock for a year or so they may as well have not been there. Some would say the perfect neighbours.
I’ve just arrived home from a client meeting to see a For Sale sign on their (overgrown) strip of lawn that survived the concrete. Bugger. Silent neighbours are good neighbours. Now the wait for who moves in next begins. My only concern is that the concrete apron out the front will be attractive to people with lots of cars, and the experience of living with cars parked just meters from our bed is not one we’d like to go through again.
The Neighbour lottery, cross your fingers we win.
