regular readers may remember the neighbours with the trampoline.

last week, he was spotted *dismantling his shed*, and we became cautiously optimistic that they might finally have sold up. And today, Matt From Next Door knocked on the door to tell us that a large hire van was outside the house, and was being loaded – they’ve gone! No more trampolining, thank $deity.

I fervently hope two things:

  1. that the new occupants aren’t too disappointed when they find out they won’t get planning permission for an extension, because the estate agent was overheard telling them that they “could just take the garage down and build an extension”, and they won’t get planning permission, and
  2. that the sodding trampoline was not included in the fixtures and fittings!
