Space Invader ...
I was a tad surprised to look out of my kitchen window one morning and see this leering back at me over the fence …
It belongs to the people next door, who’d mounted it on the fence between our gardens, which put 99% of the dish in my garden and directly above my plant tables, where I do most of my gardening.
Apart from it hardly being a thing of beauty and a joy forever, I sometimes have to stand on a step to reach the back of the plant stands – and that would put my face on a level with the sticky-out bit, and I’d only have to misjudge the distance or forget to allow for it being there…
I dropped them a note asking if it was to be moved and telling them I wasn’t happy that they hadn’t even asked if I minded having their property in my space. No reply.
I gave them plenty of time to move it, then wrote a letter to the council; the day I was going to post it, the dish disappared. It may have been a month’s free trial which they’d not taken up.
But all the same, it’s a bit much … I keep my things firmly on my side of the fence, and I do sort of tend to expect others to show the same courtesy.
