What's Up in Your Week? PART 8
Last Post :
I've lost 2 of my best friends this year Pam to breast cancer and its heartbreaking. One of my friends had 4 children and the youngest is only 5 years old. My friend Vero was just 42 when she died. Live every day like its your last. Problem is I think I'm overdoing it ! lol
My dear friends I am sorry for your sadness that has come into your lives........ but that is because you lost people you loved or cared so very much about. You are nice people to know & found great friendship with these people. They were lucky to know you & you to know them. Life would not have been the same without them. So remember 'Just do TODAY... because TOMORROW never gets here' its always today.
I am SO PROUD of you all sharing good times & very sad times. It shows we are getting to be a real caring family. That we can say what is in our hearts.
I agree with everything you've said Lyn. BUT now I am going to rant. I would like some feedback on this subject please. My husband and I bought our house 9 years ago, we have spent a lot of money making it into our dream house, adding swimming pool ect. ect. Anyway our house is on the corner of the road and for some reason both my neighbours who live on the other side of the road think its normal to put all there S--t for the rubbish collectors on my corner. Everytime I drive up the road all I see is there s--t sitting outside of my house. Both my hubby and me have confronted them about it on numerous occasions, they say that the ground outside of my house is not our ground and they can put whatever they want there !!! We pay our gardener to take away all the cuttings from our garden to keep the corner clean. Both these family's have ground outside there homes but prefer to make our house look like the rubbish dump. The association for the estate has spoken to these familys and they said they dont want to have there walls damaged by the machine that takes away the rubbish. My wall is in fact newer than there's because when we had the swimming pool errected the wall had to be demolished to get it in. I'm pissed off now because the rubbish was moved last Friday and by Saturday there was another mound of s--t again. and it will stay there until next Friday and every day they will add more and more until you can't pass. I know last week I should have asked my gardener to dump all our stuff outside there houses and let them know what its like but I would'nt lower myself to there level. So thats how it is ! all I want to know is what would you do ??? The pic below was taken just hours after the rubbish collectors had cleared everything away, its driving me round the twist. the bin is not mine by the way, my neighbour leaves it there all the time and just crosses the road and fills it up.
No way....who do they think they are. No 1 I would go to the council. If they don't do anything. Go & ask advice from the police, say that you want to do something about this, that you have been to the council & nothing was done. Then say, 'I could get two respected neighbours to go with me, as witnesses. Tell the people across the road to NOT DUMP rubbish in front of my house.' Take PHOTO'S to council & police. If the police say you can't do that, ask them what you can do to stop this, its unhealthy for a start, not my rubbish. That you have always been a good neighbour but now they are taking advantage of you & its wrong. THEN if that is not good enough write to the editor of the paper & show photo...no names OK. What about concumer affairs, they would be able to say where you stand.
Hugs there is no quick fix BUT it will be worth it in the end. Good luck & let me know. OK.
Hey Pauline....I do not understand everything .Do you have no fences or walls around your land ? Something like this would be impossible here in Germany, also my husband said he would throw it all back ... let's see what his neighbors do then .....it is an impertinence and you have to defend yourselves ....let me also know OK?
Yes Ruth if you look at the pic above you can see my wall and white fence above it. Tell your husband that we have thrown the rubbish back many times but it is always back the next day. I took this next pic when I arrived home from my group last night. My hubby has sent pics to the Mayor this morning and asking them to help us stop these people, Maybe this time they'll do something more possitive. ??? Otherwise I'll buy a GUN !
Pauline, I would be just as ticked off as you.It's your property for goodness sakes! Keep all your photo's! Here they would be fined for littering which would be huge. I wouldn't even bother trying to talk with the neighbors about it again. Can you call the police? That's what I would have to do where I live.
Sorry to hear about your friends passing to Pauline.
NO you wont buy a gun. Use the police man/woman that has the gun & also the right tell tell these people where to put it. OK. Be cool, don't speak to them again, the authorities will & should do it from here on. Hugs.
Thanks so much for your advice girls, I needed it because you get to a point were you start thinking its you who's fussing about nothing. I'll see what news we get from the mayor and if nothing is done we will go to the local police. The soonest the rubbish will be taken away is next friday so I doubt if you will be able to even see my house by then !!!
It's another gorgeous day in southern Michigan. I just am amazed at how lucky we have been and thankful for all these beautiful Autumn days! I've had a sort of busy day today and did try to post early in the day but I had some company drop by so that was that.
Enjoy your evening.
Hi Pami this is just beautiful. Pauline you are on the right track. Mum's the word don't mention what you are doing to ANYONE. Nothing better than a surprize. Oh if you just happen to take a photo of your neighbours while they are off loading that could help. Hugs. I am glad we have this thread to talk to each other.
I'll see if I can get a photo of them in action, Sherlock Holmes is my middle name. ! lol
Brilliant stuff if you can. So what did the Mayor say?
Got a message from the Mayor's office yesterday saying they have put the case to the Municipal Police and we should hear from them in the next couple of days. I hope they come to see us before Friday so that they can see for themselves the mess outside. fingers crossed.
That is great news. If you still have that pile of cuttings & rubbish from over the road, you could go & ask the police to just come & see the rubbish before it is taken away. So then they would know what you meant by pile of rubbish dumped each week. They can say either Yes or No. The shitheads across the road might get wind of what is happening. That's what I would do anyway. Hugs.
Good news girls, the people from the enviroment office came this morning and they fully agree with us about the mess. They said they have spoken to the culprits and warned them. If it happens again the police will be involved. Then 3 hours later the Police arrived and took a statement from us, they went to see the neighbours and have told them about the complaint and they must comply with the law. The police are going to do a patrol to make sure that it does'nt happen again. I'll believe that when I see it ! lol Anyway it could be a good warning to them. Only problem is they did'nt speak to the real culprit both times when he saw the official cars arrive he shot off in his car and so the police only spoke to his son who does'nt live there anyway. But at least its a start.
Indeed Pauline that are good news and I hope the culprits stop this mess now and ......... Sherlock Holmes....LOL....keep your eyes open if they do it again take a photo. I'm at home from work and have a half day off.....we just had a coffee with a piece of cake..now I'm relaxing on the sofa. Hugs to everyone
Well I'm going into the pool with my grandson Lucas for a splashing afternoon, hugs.
I'm sooooooo jealous... Pauline enjoy
Hi Ruth glad you are having a 1/2 day off you need it sweetie. Well done Pauline the guy across the road ran because he knew he had done wrong, plus he also knows his number is up. Fantastic. Everyone will be telling each other so they will all know to BEWARE or else. Great stuff. Screw them I'm really pleased for you & Dom. Hugs.
Thanks Lyn, the crap is still there but I'm hoping once its been removed it will be end of story ??? you could have all came over for a dip in the pool to celebrate !!! Last count for my Halloween party was 78 and climbing! Yippee.
Hello all here at Mad Hatters. So sorry about your friends and the mess Pauline. Hope it will be removed and it will be the end of it for you. I wish I could come and take a dip in the pool. Hope all have a lovely Thursday. Hugs.
Hey you guys the nice thing is we all work together as a family. Cool. Hugs everyone.
Stopping by to say HI......hugs to everyone
wishing all my friends
Same to you Ruth and everyone else in the group.
We have all had a busy week, one way or the other. I am off to outside to weed some of my own just for a change. Its a beautiful day so I'm off. Might see you later. If I can move...LOL hugs
Well Done Pauline, hope that situation with the garbage from the neighbors is resolved.
I was one of those effected by whatever was going on with C2 last week and to be honest it's still a problem. It takes so much time trying to post anywhere if it works at all. Today is especially not good with Care2 is very slow and I am getting white pages now as I try to say hello in a few groups. I wanted you to know why I have not been around much and
I am going to be busy readying for my move next week so will be going off line for awhile. I hope to get my Internet service quickly. I will probably be stopping by another time or two till then.
Hope everything goes well with your move Pami.
Yesterday the rubbish collectors came and moved all the stuff, I was so happy when I drove home from my English group last night and saw my corner all clear. Anyway this morning when I checked my letterbox all I can see is a massive tarpaulin with loads of of rubbish inside of it thrown outside my wall again !!! will this ever end. What Now ???
Time to call the police, BUT make sure you take a photo first. One day you can go to court & fine these sweet people the photo's are your proof. OK. Don't give them ANY room to think you are going to stop, GO GIRL.
Oh my god, what awful but also stupid neighbors...
I don't like to imagine what my husband would do.
Do you have no regulatory agency ? If such a thing would happen here , it would clarified quite quickly.
But Lynnie is right I would also take pictures.
hey Pauline did you call the cops? if not ask Dom to doit. Don't let these A H's get away with anything. Hugs
Ruth my husband has tried to speak with this stupid man (Ass Hole) many times. I am scared to let him go to far as Dominique has already had two pacemakers so it could be dangerous, if it gets out of hand. No Lyn havent contacted the police yet but have photographed it all again.
Hello to all here at Mad Hatters. I would call the police and glad pictures were taken Pauline. Really hope its resolved soon for you. Lynn and Pam hello and have a lovely Monday.
I just hope there is'nt any rubbish outside for my Halloween Party 1st November, because put some drinks down some of my friends and we just don't know what will happen ! lol
Hehe Pauline it's determined a funny party....today it was warm , seems as the summer is back.....
Lyn is very busy... but will be back tomorrow she sends hugs to everyone here
Cheers Ruth, here its hot and humid, I've got a terrible cough and cold. Hot whiskey before I go to bed tonight.
Hi Everyone, Hugs & good wishes for the rest of the week to all. Happy moving Pami, I am thinking of you. NOW ....Pauline, good dose of Vitiamin C for a few days will do wonders. Whisky & any other booze will depleat your Vitiamin C.
Getting back to thoses dead S*its across the road.....neither you or Dom say anything to them, just take photo's of what rubbish they dump. Neither of you go near them. OK.
'If it happens again the police will be involved. Then 3 hours later the Police arrived and took a statement from us, they went to see the neighbours and have told them about the complaint and they must comply with the law.'
Pauline just quietly call the police & tell them what is happening. Tell all your friends they MUST not say or do anything with the rubbish dumpers across the road or they will stuff everything you & Dom have done. So when is your party? I would let the police know that you are having you yearlyparty & would appreciate them sorting things out before then. You have to do this Pauline. Then it might stop. Just being a good friend. If it was me I would do all the above. Ingrid said she would call the police so did Ruth. There is nothing wrong with standing up for yourself...through the law only.
Hello all here at Mad Hatters. So sorry you aren't feeling well Pauline. Feel better soon. Lynn and Ruth hope you ladies are well. Nope nothing wrong with standing up for yourself. Hugs.
I'm doped up to my eyeballs, trying to shake this off, I'm off to bed now. Have a great Friday one and all !
Sorry you feel so rotten Pauline wishing to well girl.
thinking of you Pauline...hope you feel better soon
I'm at home waiting for my granddaughter Leni ... my son and his wife buy a new car today....... and it is very boring for a small child ... lol
but we are always happy when Leni is with us
Thanks girls for all your good advice I do listen to you all. The police are going to pass by later, fingers crossed.
I've been taking vitamin C for the past 3 days but now I think that it might not be the flu but the "Dengue" from a mosquito, there are 800 cases a week reported here at the moment but luckily only 5 have been fatal.
So Pauline its time for your doctor to come to you or if they can't you go there. NO messing around OK. Ruth & I have the same problem very sore backs. Mine is so sore I will have to go to bed. Mind you its just pass 12 mid night anyway. Love to you all. See you tomorrow. Pauline get to a doctor or I'll kick your butt girl. Mum has spoken. Hugs.
Pauline I agree totally with Mum Lynnie.
.Vitamin C isn't enough you need another medicine...be a good girl and call your doctor....I'm lying on the sofa the whole day ...my back drives me crazy.
Hugs to everyone .......
No Doctor, I'm feeling a bit better today so I'll wait until Monday. I'm going to send you two a hunky guys to give you both a back massage hows that sound ! lol. The police did'nt come to see us yesterday, so we'll wait and see.
Is everybody in bed ????
Hey glad you are feeling a bit better....BUT I agree with Ruth. If something hangs around like what you have, a doctor won't kill you, just help you. I was going to garden at home today BUT my back is still sore so I did my back exerises, took Kya for a walk, 1/2 an hour or more. Then some Nurofen tablets they help muscle soreness best. Did some food shopping at Aldi. Came home & Peter & I had home made Muffins with Rasberry jam in the middle [when I cook them that is] with a cup of tea. NOW talking to you. Hugs.
This post was modified from its original form on 26 Oct, 22:29
yum yum Lynnie...your Muffins sound good...want some
my back is still sore but I don't want to take Nurofem, it's not good with my Betablocker and Marcumar ( I need it against my atrial fibrillation) today the sun is shining and I'm on the sofa again, hope the relaxation helps because tomorrow I've to go to work again.
Pauline take care of you...hugs to everyone and Happy Sunday
Muffins ! I cannot remember the last time I had them, my Mum used to put butter and jam on them! Mmmmmmm
Have a great week girls.
Two hours of gardening in the morning at least I can kneel down & not have to bend over. Then I am going to make a Banana cake, with lemon icing plus lick the bowl. Why? Because I'm a guts. LOL. So are you going to the doctor? Is your rubbish gone & the a/holes haven't dumped anymore yet? You poor lady getting a hard time because they are dick heads.
Glad to hear your back is feeling a bit better. No the rubbish is still there and today my gardeners have come to cut the hedges so they have kindly offered to take away the rubbish. They also offered to go to the neighbours and sort them out too ! lol So at least my corner will be clear for my party Friday night. If they dare put any more rubbish down between now and Friday then I'll blow a fuse.
Hello to you ladies. Glad you are better Lyn. Sorry the rubbish is still there but glad the gardeners will take it away and go to the neighbors to sort them out for you Pauline. Hope they won't put anymore down. Have a lovely Monday and hugs to you all.
Hugs to you too Ingrid. Good Pauline hope they wake up after the gardeners say something. What a cheek. No blowing any fuses girl, just call the Health Eviroment police/inspectors.... let them do it NOT YOU or DOM. O.K.
Have a great party, no stress OK. Tomorrow I'll make a thread Pauline's Halloween Party. Then you can fill it up with great phoro's. Cool.
No Problem Lyn.
I just want you both to enjoy your party with out hassel from those ignorant bastards across the road. OK. Hugs.
Thanks Lyn, I'll see if I can behave myself ! lol
That's my girl, relax and have fun. Whatever you are all doing today have a good day its the first day of the rest of your life. Hugs.
Hello Lynnie and Ingrid...hope it's all good in your part of the world...
enjoy your party Pauline...relax and have fun..we're waiting for your photos
Hello all here at Mad Hatters. Hope all of you had a very fun and safe Halloween. I did. Just watched my scary movies and ate candy. Hugs.
Ingrid that sounds a good thing to do. We don't doo Halloween no children live near us. I played games too long at started to fall asleep at the computer. But going to bed need an early night see you all tomorrow. Wonder how Pami is getting on moving house? Hugs everyone. Yes looking forward to the photo's Hope you are feeling better Ruth or a bit anyway. Hugs.
Well girls I'm still not feeling good, I've been putting all the halloween decs up today. The party starts in 2 hours so I'm going to get ready, I'm sad because I did'nt realize my new costume will be to hot for tonight so I'm going to put on last years with new stockings ! I dont think anyone will notice. Luv you all. Cross your fingers its a great party.
It sure will be a great party Pauline...enjoy it....
Lynnie my back isn't good yet....but there are more other problems...
and that's the reason I can not be here daily at the moment, because our granddaughter Leni is with us often.
Our daughter in law is not doing well, after gallbladder surgery. She will probably need surgery again and for 10 days to be in hospital .... it's so "! "!/&=?
thinking of you all and sending hugs to everyone
Sorry to hear about your daughter in law, hoping she will be ok soon? are you living close to her because that will be a big help. Take advantage of looking after your grandaughter, they light up your life !
I know even though I've been very sick over the last two weeks my Grandson really makes me see reallity !!! we laugh together so much, even though he speaks French as his first language, I'm the only one he speaks to in English and he now speaks perfect only problem is, he is like my daughter they have a SCOUSE Accent (Liverpool Accent) like me !!!
I'm really sorry Ruthie to hear the not so good news with your daughter -in-law. But Leni will light up Mo's life while you are at work. Then you can take over. Sorry to hear your back is still in pain.
Pauline that sounds like a great friendship there.
Sorry I haven't been on Peter & I were watching a show & then I came in but I couldn't get on Care2 or Face Book. So now its late & I have to go to bed. 3 gardens tomorrow I'll be stuffed. Hugs everyone.
Hubby still cannot fathom out why his camera is'nt downloading, its because he put in this new updated stuff on, I still have problems too ! Anyway I thought my friend Babette would put her pics on for me but she lost her camera at my house Friday night ! OMG I've stripped the house looking for it but its not here. Hoping we did'nt have a thief at the party.
NO....just sit somewhere quiet, close your eyes & concentrate where it would be. After awhile the picture will back to you where you saw it. It works. Hugs. You poor girl after all that effort.
Hello all here at Mad Hatters. Glad you had a fun Halloween Party Pauline. Hope you ate something for me. Love your pictures. Ruth so sorry to hear about your daughter in law and you back problems. In my thoughts. Hello Lyn. Hugs to all.
Sorry girls still waiting for some photo's, Babette came back over today and we both searched everywhere for her camera. She took 300 photo's, as she said its an old camera, so thats not important to her, but all our pics are ! I've put a notice on facebook to ask anyone who was here on Friday and may have taken her camera by mistake to return it or let me know how I can pick it up. Fingers crossed we have someone honest among us ?
Hi Ingrid hope you had a good time & got up to mischief on Halloween.
Hope each day is a bit better for you & your family Ruth, you poor girl.
Well Pauline how is your head? They were great photo's, your daughter looked very sexy in her outfit. So Dom takes the photo's so he doesn't get in them hey? You will have to trick him next time and take his photo for us.
Hope Pami is doing well at her settleing in. Its tough, so many things to you. Where is Rose? Has she given us up? Jo Anne has been busy posting dogs & cats that need a home on Face Book.
Me...well this week I have done NINE hours gardening already & its only Tuesday,very busy so far. But that is good for the body & the pocket. LOL.
Hello I fell asleep & everyone peed off. LOL.
I'm sorry but I'm looking after Lucas who is sick like me. I probably passed it on to him so feel guilty about that. I'll pop in later. hugs.
