    Just the one? Pfft, amateur :rollingeyes: :winking:

    Get all the caffeine you can, pop in greggs (other establishments are available) and grab a bacon and sausage batch and a coffee, get some sugar in the coffee for quick pick up and the bacon will do the rest.

    As much as I'd love to get the police involved as her friend also threw all my food and utensils away, I'm just going to move on with my life and forget about it all. Not trying to put an excuse on why she did it, but I really didn't help the situation myself..

    Fully thought that said persuasion shotgun, it's a shame it didn't as I would of bought it straight away!

    I couldn't sleep there for 2 days, I slept in my small Renault Clio. For all Clio drivers out there, don't sleep in your Clio. Your Clio is too small and will feel like it's crippling you.

    No your doing it wrong, by a pack of pro plus, mash then into a powder and snort the lot in one line, then get coffee and a bacon an sausage roll (sorry were filthy southeners here). That's the correct way to do things.

    I have done some fudging and made a low tech aircon unit using a gutted out USB fridge and a fan, Peltier unit keeps the water cool, fan in front of water, slightly cooler air than normal. Plus if all else fails you can put the peltier on your forhead an get instant brain freeze, pro tip, don't try that kids.

    There's a tiny smidgen of the Midlands where people will call a roundish bread object a batch. They also invent new Road sections and crossings you'll not find in the highway code. Odd place my home town is. :hehe:

    The pensioners across the road who seem to always start cutting the grass or hedge at about 5am.

    Getting awfully tempted to get some kind of revenge when there trying to sleep.

    I haven’t but the bloke next to me has been having a feud with them for a few years after mentioning it.

    I’m not sure yet, I need something that won’t annoy everyone else.

    Build a Catapault and launch eggs every damn time they start mowing :), or just throw them... at random they'll soon get the message and they'll think its your neighbour = result!

    Pretty sure you can get them on a public disturbance offence for doing it at that time. Unless the law has changed in the last ten years.

    The local district council's environmental health office may help you with this.

    They will come and assess the situation firstly. If they agree there is a problem they will talk to the pensioners and try to get them to change their timing to something more reasonable and, if that fails, they can take enforcement action.

    If its a lawnmower, nothing more fun than tossing some light plastic on the lawn, wont do any damage but the noise will scare the crap out of them. Its that or polystyrene, but I find its harder to throw, it just floats.

    Also, im with Gunsmith, the death orb of doom can do one now, everything is turning into hay, the council decided to mow the hay so just basically spraying dust, the roads are melting (ruined my bike tyres).
    I'm fed up with the flying ants, being clammy/sweaty all the time and would like a decent nights sleep.

    I just cut into a "ripe and ready" avocado and it was neither of those things.
    Sainsbury's will be receiving a sternly worded letter.
