In the last week two things have happened in the last week that suggest to me my neighbourhood is in decline.
Earlier this week I walked out of my front door only to notice across the road in the childrens park/play area were a small number of caravans, a few dogs and some makeshift washing lines. Lovely!
Luckily, within a few days they had been moved on.
This afternoon on returning home I noticed a friends car parked near my place which may not seem unusual but I wasn’t expecting them and I hadn’t seen them for some time.
Turns out they were actually visiting a house near mine because it belonged to their mother and within 1 week of her renting it out, it had been turned into a cannabis factory!
It’s now going to cost her £1000 to put the electrical wiring back as it should be because the would-be botanists had spliced into the mains.
