(new entry because I really couldn’t do another footnote*)
I did try asking my neighbour to keep quiet, turn the music down etc. It worked the first two or three times. But then she got fed up with me. I haven’t felt able to face her since. And since I’ve been officially “moving any time now” for at least the last 3 years, I didn’t see the point in a lot of conflict.
But as I said, the flat, a whole other nightmare.
(*It’s not so much the number of footnotes but the repetition of the asterisk** that looks wierd after a while)
(**A long time ago a friend of mine made an album called “The Celebration of the Azimuth”, I like to think of “The Repetition of the Asterisk” as one of his later works)
