“So you’re back then, you’ve been away for a long while.” Mr Irish came over this morning and met Rick for the first time and brought us up to date with all the gossip from our courtyard community (our coach house shares a courtyard with a block of flats and three houses).
Apparently the young couple in the top corner flat were evicted after partying and getting drunk every night and making life a misery for Mr Frost who lives in the flat underneath. They have been replaced by another couple. “They’re from Roumania,” we are told.
The nice lady in the middle flat had problems with her shower that flooded the Vampires flat on the ground floor. They had to move out temporarily while it was fixed.
“Strange couple, she’s from Russia I think. They always have their blind down.”
“Vampires,” Paul said.
Mr Irish nodded in agreement.

Marmite the black cat has also moved out from the corner house along with his mistress, Louise. She has been replaced by a single dad and one of his children (apparently mum has the other child). Perhaps he will get together with our neighbour Lisa who is also a single parent.
So there we are, all up to date with the neighbourhood.
