It all started over 2 years ago when the next door neighbour decided to sell the house on the corner.
His father came over to uk from Poland to fly for the RAF in the war and stayed.
He was here when we moved in and we had a good relationship with him for 45 years.
He was eccentric and hoarded every little thing, the back garden was a jungle and the garage was full to the brim with useful things, but all the same he was a lovely man and we were sad when he passed away.
No need to tell you that the cats loved that garden and Ben liked them and allowed them free access,.
Then the so called renovations started.
Maybe some readers will remember me moaning about the mud that was being trodden in and the noise.
This was the back of the house with all trees and bushes removed.
Same at the front, no trees or bushes left and more mud to tread in.
This is what it looks like now and it has been sold for just under £1,000,000.
As you can see there are leylandii strategically placed for effect, but all the rest of the surrounding area is block paving.
Not much good for birds , insects or even my lot.
The new neighbours move in today and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they
1. Like cats
2. Like foxes
3. Like seagulls
otherwise I can see things might be a bit sticky.
Keep your fingers crossed.
