A Tale of Two Neighbours

No4 always catch me out of a bind - from clearing our drain pipes when they block, to rescuing mr bluebirdcage's dormant car tyre from a slow puncture while he's out of town. Not to mention, the avid bird watcher of No4 is always there for a friendly hello & has a keen spot for little miss Delilah.

On occasion, No6 has caught me janglin 'round the kitchen, baking and cleaning to the likes of Howlin Wolf - singing at the top of my lungs and dancing like no one's watching. One hand raps gently on the window, while the other waves a courgette greeting my way. No6's allotment grown courgettes are a thing of beauty: fresh, crisp, and always in abundance during the summer months. 

Today was time to say 'thank you' to these two wonderful neighbours*. Mama's sweet friendship loaves worked just the treat.

*Stabby neighbour had to sit this 'thank you' out. Too many slams of the door, glazed over expressions and visits from the fuzz for my liking.

Until next time...
