My current neighbours are the worst I’ve ever had, they moved in this March and they have already upset the sheltered housing community that is behind my garden. They cut back all the bird cover and now no birds come into my garden. My bird feeders are still full after two weeks – they usedContinue reading “My neighbours…”
Today I planned to get away for the day on the bus. On my way to get on a bus, I started getting texts from someone I’m friendly with telling me he was being harassed because of a review I wrote about another shop. Yes that’s weird isn’t it?
