Excellent weekend with one minor exception

lazigyrl and I had an excellent weekend for the most part (more about that in the next paragraph). She came over Friday night, we ate Swiss Chalet, and watched lots of Agatha Christie (both Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot).  Saturday we went out for a while as the house was getting stuffy with the heat of the day. We returned, ate Chinese food, and watched Pride and Prejudice (the Colin Firth one, aka the best only Mr. Darcy in my humble opinion). While we did have a real meal each day, we also gorged ourselves on junk food, Mike's Hard Lemonade, ginger beer, and assorted nonalcoholic beverages.  Sunday we watched Doctor Who reruns (David Ten-inch) before she had to dash for a play.

The minor exception to the excellent time was my neighbours next door.  They moved in one week after we did and they have been the bane of the neighbourhood with their loud music and yelling at all hours.  I had been quite pleasant in dealing with them in the past, asking them to keep it down without lasting success.  Saturday I snapped and screamed at them through their door at 2 am.  They wouldn't open the door to me as I was pounding on it like a mad woman and shouting at them to STFU.  I was frankly surprised that I did not have a bruise on my hand.  I had also called Bylaw Enforcement, but it was prom night and they were very late in getting here.  Anyway, there is some positive to come from this.  I'm not sure if it is having a crazy woman for a neighbour or the prospect of being charged and issued a $405 fine, but I haven't heard a peep out of them since.

The major takeaway is that lazigyrl and I got to catch up with each other as we hadn't seen each other for quite a while.  It was very pleasant (previous paragraph excepted) and it was really sweet that she kept me company while hubby was away.


I'm glad you and lazigyrl had such a FABULOUS weekend (the neighbours from hell aside)! :-D I can relate to being the crazy woman as I've done the rapping on the ceiling with my swiffer thing, etc. It's wonderful that the neighbours have been charged and fined $405. Maybe that will help them to remember to STFU. *g*
The neighbours haven't actually been charged or fined as I did not press charges. They were told by the Bylaw officer that it would be so if a neighbour did press charges. I want to try to resolve this without burdening the court system so I am proceeding on the assumption the threat of fines and charges (and the crazy woman next door) will keep them quite. It is working so far.
Sorry. I think I've been suffering from brain freeze this week. *g* Well, if the threat of fines and charges works then that's just as good. :-)
