when you are walking down the drive they (every 1 of them) put their heads down/look the other way??wtf why not just look over and say `mornin they have done this for 2 years.

That's exactly how our neighbours behave. Head down and look away. It's pathetic and rude. The only saving grace is that they are only there every other weekend as they use the cottage as a holiday home.

The neighbours on the other side couldn't be nicer.

Nowt as q ueer as folk :confused:

Guilt+ Shame @ having a Holiday Cottage in Wales. So they should be ashamed. If I was a Welshman, I`d be watching them and casually wandering round with jerrycans of petrol every time they came and "lived" next door to me :evil:

You mean 'look around'. Looking 'round' is what fat people do.

The ironic thing is that he is Welsh, and I'm English. Oddly I live next to a cockney with a brummy next door to them and another cockney owns the local pub.

I think the explanation is more simple. He is a d*ck

Why should they feel guilt and shame? People should spend less time whingeing about what other people have or have not got and commit far more time and thought to what they themselves have got.

Them having that place means that they spend money in the area when they're there, so the economy gains, does it not?

I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would want to buy anything in that God-foresaken sh*thole of a country, filled with Taffy knobbers who speak with a more stupid accent than the carrot-crunching inbreds over here anyhow, but that's just my personal take on it. Each to their own.

Obviously a Mensa member.


If you had read my post you would realise that there are very few Welsh people in my valley. Not that it would be a problem if there were.

I think you are getting north and south Wales confused. I live in an amazing picturesque valley surrounded by forests and fields. The river runs past our house 20 metres away. I am just off outside to listen to the river /owls and watch the bats flying over the garden. I couldn't think of anywhere else I would rather be.

And as I said previously, my neighbours nationality is immaterial. A kn*b is a kn*b regardless of where he was born.

It contains Pen y Fan and Brecon Beacons. That's reason enough not to like. :LOL:

Yes there are nice (very nice) areas of welsh Wales and as you say the north is infinitely preferable. But that bloody accent....

Bachco, the next time you know that your neighbour is out do this:

1 Lay two planks of wood side by side and 50mm apart at right angles to your wall and the whole length of the boundary.

2. make sure that the whole of the 50mm gap between the planks is on your side of the boundary line even if it is only by a few mm.

3. With the planks in place, either dig out the strip of grass between the planks, (which I have done), or kill the narrow strip with a weedkiller like sodium chlorate.

4 Or erect a low level fence (30mm high) again entirely on your side of the boundary line.

I fell out with my upstairs neighbour the first time she flooded me. It was the middle of the night and there was water pouring through my kitchen and bathroom ceilings, she said she couldn't turn the water off cos she couldn't get in to the stopcock and she wasn't phoning the plumber (her brother-in-law) in the middle of the night. It was after 11am the next day before he came - he'd been on the golf course and the water ran all that time. I was knocking holes in the ceiling to try and drain it cos I thought it would collapse. Then she lied through her flippin teeth about how the leak occured so that I couldn't claim off her house insurance (backed up, of course, by her brother in law plumber). Didn't speak to her for months after that.

I didn't fall out with her the last time she flooded me - last year - even though she lied again about how it happened (same bloody place I might add - kitchen and bathroom) - apparently her sink blocked when she was draining the fat from her mince (what the hell kind of mince does she use) - how this could have flooded two rooms in my house I'll never know. And again, it was over 12 hours before she got her BIL out. And again, I had to do the repairs myself - it's impossible to claim from her when she has a plumber that will concoct a story to make it impossible to claim from her.

Don't get me started on her spilling 5 litres of brick red masonery paint on my path, or her son "pruning" my apple tree or the fact that she kept blocking the drains with baby wet ones and that she refused to pay her share of having the guttering repaired when it was leaking.

Neighbours are a pain in the backside sometimes.

My neighbour on the other side is lovely, but her grandson seems to think I'm the HSS Hire Shop. Every time he sees me, he wants to borrow a spade/hammer/spanner/saw/plane or some other tool. I've suddenly lent every tool I possess out to people and haven't had them returned yet!!!! :LOL:

With regard to your landing strip - next time you're cutting the grass and you see him, shout over "are we taking turn about of cutting this bit?"
