Yesterday, new neighbours have moved in next door – a mere 14 months after the freeholder started to renovate the flat. This should presumably mean no more building work (how it takes anyone using professional builders 14 months to renovate a two bedroom flat is beyond me…), so peace should descend. Or perhaps not.
I have not met my new neighbours, or even seen them for that matter, but I would put money on them having a very young baby. A young baby that cries late at night and early in the morning for long periods of time. Loudly. But not loudly enough or long enough for it to encourage a parent to go and check the baby or do anything to stop it crying.
I was very tired all day yesterday. I bought ear plugs at lunch time.
