The area I live in
My house is the middle of a terraced block and the gardens are postage stamp size and we live side by side with neighbours. When I moved here 17 years ago all living here were decent respectable folk over 60 who looked out for each other .
Times change and in the last 4 years some died and some moved on leaving new neighbours arriving , and I'm sad to say causing
Issues . These people seem to have no care or respect for those of us who have been here what seems forever. Next to me a dog sits feet away from my fencing barking and barking , it's never told to be quiet even though they are sitting feet away from it indoors watching TV or reading , it is just allowed to bark . The people are not neighbourly and although in the past I would acknowledge them they choose to walk past as if I'm invisible. The gardens are left to grow enormous weeds and in one garden nextdoor but one is piled with sofas and junk been there 6 months . Where is the respect for homes and people ?
The issue for me is I've loved my home and look after it yet of late the barking dog ( not left alone to bark indoors I must add as they dont work ) the state of the gardens and accumulating junk in gardens is getting to me and I'm starting to wish to move away yet it's the last thing I want in all honesty and moving might be even worse as I cant afford to buy in a better area of housing I may jump out of the fire into the frying pan .
I'm just having a grumble as I know there is nothing I can do it's best to keep my head down like others do and just keep my home decent and my fences high as I've always done .
I live in hope decent folk will eventually move in to our little row of terraced
