Long time, no post

Seems like a lifetime ago since I last posted to this blog. Truth is, I've not had anything interesting to say, I've been nowhere worth writing about, and I thought it best to take a break.

There are a few changes in the offing. The elderly lady who lived in the flat downstairs, has moved out. So I'll be getting a new neighbour soon. I just hope Coastal Housing put someone decent in. I'm especially wary, because at previous addresses, they've housed me in the same blocks as drug addicts, alcoholics, armed robbers, perverts, mail thieves, wife beaters and a mad woman who tried to suffocate her baby.

My ideal neighbour would be someone who didn't make excessive noise, especially at night, didn't have a drink or drug problem, respected my space and privacy, wouldn't steal my mail, and wouldn't interfere with me in any way. Is that asking for too much?

I also hope that whoever moves in downstairs understands that I have a right to have visitors, have to walk up and down my stairs, open and close my flat door, and cannot possibly get to my bathroom without walking the length of the flat. Unfortunately, the previous neighbour was very sensitive to the slightest sound emitted from my flat, and took to shrieking abuse at myself and my visitors.

It seems it's all change here at Blogger, too, with a few new features since I last posted. I'm not sure if they're available in the regular Blogger - I use Blogger in Draft, where new features are tested before they become standard parts of Blogger. The post editor has changed, too - thankfully. It's a much more straightforward interface now. The only niggle I have, is that there no longer seems to be a spell checker - unless I'm missing something.

Anyway, that's enough from me. Hope to be back again soon.

Hello Siani!

Good to see you posting again, I know it can get difficult to know what to write about sometimes as live becomes all a bit humdrum from time to time.

Hope you get a nice new neighbour, nothing worse than having your little place in the world, your little nest messed up in someway by others be it noise or anything else!

Glad to see you back Siani. I hope the new neighbour is from heaven rather than hell!

I do hope you are lucky with the new neighbour. We had a flat in King Edwards Rd. above various. We had moved out by the time someone ODd in the lower flat.
