When we built our house
We really thought that we would have peace and quiet. After all there wasn't room for another house anywhere near us. Just recently two neighbours have sold off their back gardens for building. Two houses across the road at the side, and one if front. Last weekend we witnessed the ripping out of hedges and the felling of a lovely conifer. I know that in two or three years when the gardens are established it will be fine. Just a bit sad at the moment.
