The new neighbour shouts a lot. I think he's one of those blokes who thinks if you shout loud enough, people will be bound to agree with you. He does have an extremely loud shout, and from what I have heard so far he thinks he is always right about any subject under the sun.
I have never heard his wife shouting back at him. I think she does have a go back though because tonight I heard him shouting: "WILL YOU SHUT UP? I DO THE TALKING IN THIS HOUSE. YOU DO THE FUCKING LISTENING!"
Well actually mate, I have been listening too, and from what I just heard you are a sadly deluded fool.
Sorry about the swear word, but that is what he said. I could have put asterisks but you would still have known what the word was.
Anyway that is by the by. I have again been busy, getting things ready for the big night. It's a lot of effort for something that will only last for a few hours, but hey, you're only young once!
This is how my temporary erection is looking now. Try to imagine it at night with candles and other subdued lighting. Apart from the spotlight which will be shining on birthday boy of course. The stage is set as they say.
There will be a couple of big gazebos erected on the day too. Even though it is not going to rain. Better safe than sorry.
I have no idea how many are coming. I seem to have lost touch with the figures. I will do my best to provide something to eat for the unknown number of guests. I have followed some of the advice you gave me too.
Wouldn't it be awful if no one turns up? Oh blimey O'Riley!
I lit an environmentally friendly bonfire tonight. Doesn't it look nice with the moon in the background? It will be a full moon on the party night. I hope it's not cloudy. When I say environmentally friendly bonfire, what I mean is I lit it at night so nobody could see the black smoke!
Thank you for all your good wishes for my birthday.
