He’s done it. The thing that annoys me is that I don’t bother her husband if he is mowing the lawn. He’s busy!

Not wishing to intrude but is Dave’s advice to be directed towards the neighbour or husband?

Estate agents and their, well I suppose calling it hyperbole would be a bit much, but exaggeration, certainly.  This just in:

 

"Unveiled to the XXXX property market is this incredibly characterful Victorian residence, providing stunning kerb appeal via the brick façade frontage and stylish interior."

 

I've not tended to note interiors providing a lot in the way of "kerb appeal"!  It's a very standard-looking Victorian terraced house, and obviously the gravelled-over front "garden" with two large permanent plastic recycling-bin housings does a lot for the kerb appeal ;)

Our current house was described as having a patio. As there didn't appear to be one,  I queried it with the agent who informed me that the 6 'stone slabs' we were standing on, outside of the cellar door, was considered to be a patio!  You could just about get a garden chair on them but that was pushing it.

And "Unprecedented".  And there's another one which currently escapes me ...

“New Normal” definitely. It bristles with Margaret Atwood dystopian menace.

Forgive my ignorance (I have been avoiding the news lately and don't do any social media) but what exactly is this "new normal"?

all the staying 6-7ft apart, wearing face masks, etc, whenever venturing out; working from home all week (rather than just 'working from home' on a Friday) if lucky; eveything closed unless social distancing can be maintained - all that malarkey been branded the 'new normal'. 'New', as its not normal at all
