Neighbourhood Watch

It’s three o’clock in the morning, as I type this.

Yes, three of the clock!

You might think this is blogathon dedication, but no.


I have been awoken from my slumber by two things:

  • A weak bladder
  • Two women having an argument outside somewhere.

The first was easily rectified, but the second  really annoyed me, because it went on for ages… and I couldn’t see it.

I opened the bedroom curtains just enough to peek through, but couldn’t see anybody.

I craned my neck to look as far down the road as I could, and then the other way, as far as I could up the road.

But, frustratingly, whilst I could hear the arguing, I couldn’t see who it was.

In fact, the only thing I could see, was the bedroom curtains twitching at the house across the road.  I think they had a much better view.

I’ll readily admit to being a nosey neighbour… if something is going on in our road, I want to know about it.

I mean, everyone likes a bit of gossip, don’t they?

But, disappointingly,  I have none; I have nothing to show for having been awake for the past hour.

I know one of my neighbours was arguing, but I don’t know who it was.

Or what it was about.

But I bet them over the road, do.

I just might have to pop over for a cup of tea, later 🙂

    Or perhaps the 2 at the bottom of your garden arguing who’s turn it was to go and get some new batteries.

      I’ve got plenty of batteries… they only have to knock.

    Arguer 1: Right let’s have a pretend argument and see how long it is before that nosy bugger looks out of his window.
    Arguer 2: OK. Hide behind this wall so he can’t see us.
    A 1: I think I saw the curtains twitch.
    A 2: And the other one is up now opposite.
    A 1: Let’s wave to the new one, they can see us and it will wind him up over here.
    A 2: I’m tired now, let’s jack it in.
    A 1: OK. I bet he’ll be across there for a cup of tea and a hobnob later.

        Ok, but what did the neighbour opposite say? Did you go for your cup of tea, some of us are desperate to know the outcome.

        • Masher

          I didn’t go, as they were out for most of the day.
          I’ll catch up with them at some point.

    You have such interesting neighbours. All we have is Shouty Susan over the road. That’s it. The rest are dead quiet. So I want to know what was going on please?

    • Masher

      Jeez, you lot are nosier than me!
