A mother who is renting a semi-detached house with a shared wall that’s “so bloody thin [I] can hear everything”, has shared concerns about her expectant neighbour.
Writing in the online chat forum in Mumsnet, the woman explains that her neighbour mentioned to her in passing that she’s expecting a child – which was not at all news to this mum’s ears.
“I probably am being U [unreasonable]. I think I just need to vent,” she starts.
“My next door neighbour is a woman with one DC…I’m already dreading the noise this will entail at night and feel quite stressed about being woken up by a baby then having to get up and go to work.”
Noting that she has her own teenaged child to consider, the woman claims that the neighbour is already noisy.
“I feel shit that it’s going to get 100000x worse when this baby is born. I’ve just started a new relationship with someone who is in a highly professional job, I was hoping he’d be able to start staying over at mine but with a screaming child next door who would want to?”
