This morning I took delivery of a small bicycle, clearly destined as a Christmas present for the shouty kids next door.The box is a bit like this one. Each morning for the entirety of the last three months the period from 6.45 - 8.00 has been littered with noise, swearing, shouting, slammed doors and chaos in a consistent unfolding daily morning drama taking place next door.
I slightly resent this. I mean I am always awake anyway but it's not nice, and just last week they filled my bin up too, about 12 days ahead of the collection. I don't mind that two or three days before but not twelve days!
Anyhow my dilemma - post the little note to say I have it (it is a note that does not reveal what it is, in case the kids read it), or sell the bike and buy wine as a recompense to the daily interruption and bin-space theft?
