My husband is semi retired and turning into Victor Meldrew. Out neighbour's 17yr old son and his mates have been banging their football against the fence on and off in the evenings till latish and coming over the fence to get the ball. Hubby has had a go at him about that but not said anything to his parents. He sleeps in the front so is more bothered by the noise but in tru VM style won't try earplugs.
Unknown to me he fired off an email at 11pm last night to said neighbours and it has not got down well with them. I do see his point of view but he should have gone and spoken to them; we have lived next door for 13 yrs and always been on good terms. Worse is that my neighbour thinks email was from me too. I am a total wreck at the moment and this is the final straw. Don't have the energy to deal with it but can't afford to fall out with my neighbours.
