Chewbacca I think your last post is a little bit of an exaggeration.
As for my mother, I absolutely loved visiting my mother. I used to grab my keys on an evening on an impulse and off I would go. And spent most Sundays with her.
That's not what I meant by hating having to visit. To have to go every day because you're anxious, rather than stay at home and let the children enjoy playing with their toys while I relaxed, read a book etc, is not normal, or desirable. I actually feel very sorry for the daughter.
And the neighbour is not daft. She has a problem with the noise . Poor woman, I feel sorry for her too. My neighbours go out at the same time every week for two hours and their dog barks the whole time and howls. There is nothing we can do about it, so we never get to enjoy Sunday tea. If restaurants were open we would eat out sometimes. She knows the dog howls. I can tell you it's hard to put up with. as is the thumping up and down wooden stairs and in bedrooms with wooden floors. I would never be so inconsiderate to my neighbours. We all have to care about each other. There should be compromise.

Is there still a Conservative Party?
