the noise of the drill,
the dust causing the computer to crash,
the boots up and down stairs,
the crashes of radiators falling,
the where do you want your toilet roll holder put
the radios playing Magic
the open front door in February
the non flushing loo
the cold water in the bath
the boxes in the living room
the hand print on the walls
the trail of footprints on every floor
the getting a kettle of water from next door
the smell of plaster, paint and glue drying
the cooker, fridge and washing machine in the hallway
the temporary dumping ground of the communal balcony
the drilling, this time next door...

Its all worth it...not so much for the new kitchen and bathroom...but for the conversations neighbours are having in the street...
