The celebrations of the last Queen's Day/first King's Day are over, at least in the city. The neighbouring students, however, are continuing the party. I hope that by the time I go to bed it'll be over.

In truth, the last couple of their parties weren't so bad, it's the after party, when they're cleaning up (I assume) when the music is turned up and the drunk shouting begins when it gets bad. This can last until 4 to 6am. Not fun when you have to get up at 8am the next morning!

When we had a student house next door I found this too. It would be relatively quiet while the party was going on (muffled sound of music, but not too bad), and then the part would finish, and the doors would be opened, while the music was still on. Suddenly we have no-so-muffled music, and loud voices (since there'll all temporarily deaf at this point) outside the windows.

We live in the inner city amidst cafés and restaurants. We're lucky that we are able to sleep at the back of the house, where it's usually quiet. Last night went well, by the time I went to bed there was no music and I just heard a soft murmur of them talking. Then, however, came the cleaning crew outside with their loud broom/vacuum carts and leaf blowers (to blow the light trash into the road).

In comparison with the past there are only few parties that bother me (my bedroom is next to their "party room"). Usually there are parties on New Year's Eve and on Queen's Day, then there is a party at the end of the university year and a couple of parties in between. It would bother me less if they told us when they have a party, have no after party and don't have parties on Friday nights (I have to work on Saturdays).

We live in the inner city and we're used to a lot, but sometimes it's just too much. Many people say that we shouldn't have decided to live in the inner city, however, my family lived in the house/had our shop in this building for over a 100 years, well before 95% of the cafés and restaurants were here and well before it became socially acceptable for the cafés not to take into account the people who live around their establishment.

Good to see you Stitchawl.

No rant today - it's just too nice outside to be annoyed about anything. Even after the morning I've had...

Just the usual mad rush to get the kids to school on my own (can't find sports kit, can't find school top, can I iron 5 items?, make all three lunch packs, run one daughter to station, run one to school, clear up two piles of cat vomit, empty cat litter tray, feed cats, respond to work emails and wife's texts during all this, try to prepare for a 10am conference call I am hosting). And all before my working day starts .

Lol. The cat always vomits at the most convenient times.

If it's hairballs for your cat then I'd suggest some Tonic-Lax. I give my cat a little bit every other day and it's reduced vomiting incidents to almost nill.

Not hairballs - she ate a thin ribbon that was tied to a helium balloon. She has a real thing for ribbons...

Be careful ... my Sammy cat loves ribbons, strings, etc. -- a couple of years ago she ate a cassette tape - the surgery to remove it put a serious dent in my bank account.
