In with anger, out with love . . .

“Make no judgments where you have no compassion.”  (Anne McCaffrey)

This week my patience was tested.  I became so, so close, to having a word with the builders next door who thought it acceptable to start up their motors and diggers and drills and saws at 07:00 each day.

What stopped me?

  • Well, a little self-control, obviously, and also the understanding that (hopefully) everything shall pass
  • The building work will be short-lived
  • My neighbours are lovely, generous, considerate people (they take in my parcels regularly) – we’re lucky we have such great people living next door
  • Perhaps I’ll need to call in my own builders one day to makeover my garden.

She who casts the first stone, etc . . .

Deep breath, calm . . .
