restless night


since my neighbours woke me and Lois up at around 3am this morning I posted this note through their door on the way to school. Thankfully she settled quickly and woke up at 7.30am but I couldn't sleep!

So despite my bleary state, here's some WIPs:




one short side of binding done!

  2. Ooo you poor thing, I know that sleep deprived feeling. What should I do then about our neighbours who have a 2 yr old which has been waking me at 2.30am with his screaming? It's doing my head in!

  6. Ooh I hope that goes down OK, I am often tempted to write passive-aggressive notes but find nothing good ever comes of it. Hopefully you will have understanding neighbours. We once had one through our door about our car blocking our neighbour's drive all weekend. We were away and it wasn't anything to do with us. We knocked on the door and made sure she knew but I didn't like how she was accusing us so I can see why people get mad when the boot is on the other foot. Good luck!

  11. I hope they understand and make an effort. I feel for you. Constant exhaustion is debilitating.

  12. That is a tough one. I hope it works out for you, it is often hard to accommodate everyone's schedules and needs for quiet.

  18. Oh dear, our new place is detached and i am so so pleased to not have to share walls anymore! It's not students is it!?!? Hope you catch up with sleep tonight. :o)

  19. I remember those days. :( Hopefully your neighbours are understanding.

  20. Tactfully worded and tempered with the smiley face when I'm sure you wanted to use other words and a different tone at 3am! I hope it works out for you. I usually find that a note helps for a few days and then the noise will gradually go up again. If they're really young, they may not get it at all. On the other hand, they may have had no idea, and be complete angels now that they're aware. Regardless, you now have a record of your "communication" with them if it ever gets worse.

    Beautiful projects coming along there, dear!

    1. Oh, forgot to add! Look into a white noise machine or a tiny fan - it may drown out noises from outside your place and help both you and the babe get a little more shut-eye...

  21. I think the note is perfect Lucy. I live mid terrace and the walls are like paper. Thankfully my neighbours are not too bad, but it's still noisey. I hope you get some better sleep

  22. Oh I am loving that EPP - is that Elisabeth's pattern? She kindly sent it to me - desperate to get started! Hopefully you will get a better nights sleep tonight :)

  23. Oh dear! Lovely WIPs though.

  24. Hope you get a decent nights sleep tonight!!

  25. I'm getting the impression that your neighbours are not retired couple Bill and Carol? More Fresh Meat? Really hope you get some sleep Lucy - your WIPs are absolutely beautiful and I really want to make some EPP stars!!

  26. Oh, bless you! Sometimes folk just do not realise how noise carries! My OH grew up in the middle of nowhere, and despite my telling him- repeatedly! he thought it was fine to demolish a kitchen at half past midnight! Luckily our neighbours forgave us! Now we are in a detached house, and he doesn't think of demolishing anything- even when it needs it! Grr!

  27. My husband has just switched from an over night schedule to an afternoon schedule and daughter and I are still trying to adjust. Unfortunately no matter how quiet we are while he is trying to sleep we still manage to wake him up since he is not used to sleeping when he should be sleeping and so every little noise wakes him. Hope your neighbors will be more considerate and that you can get some rest!

  28. Good on you to tell them! Amazed you got something done - I am just useless when sleep deprived

  29. Bummer about your lack of sleep! Your rose star blocks are gorgeous-- reminds me that mine are in need of finishing up!

  31. Poor you. You managed a very nice note despite being so weary. Hope it works!

  32. Difficult isn't it as you have to 'live with ' your neighbours as well. Hope you start getting more sleep soon

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh you poor thing! Wish my neighbours would shush if I wrote them a note! But alas they are of the frog species and shush for no one... It has tempted me to get a slug gun I tell you.
    Amazing productivity you have regardless though. Go you!

  36. Super nice and diplomatic note. I hope they will suspend the conversation as they come inside in the wee hours.

  37. How did it go with the neighbours? Do you have a shared wall/live in a row of houses sort of thing? I'd hate my neighbours to hear me bellowing at the kids all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I hope your neighbours get the message! You need lots of sleep to work on what look like some great projects!

  39. I know exactly how you feel about the neighbours...grrr! By the way I noticed you're in Manchester, can you recommend any good fabric shops round there? Thanks
