Oh, and the never ending renovations have started up again. Remember them? No? Okay let me tell you.

The fucking neighbours are trying to break me.

They are doing this very, very slowly with very, very loud and constant machinery. Angle grinders. I assume they are angle grinders because when I asked what they were doing once they made comments about 'painting'. They regular have a compressor delivered as well, clearly that's for days when they want to give me extra aggravation.

It's obvious that it's just a ploy to break me, because they're taking long enough that if they really were painting, by the time they'd finish they'd need to start again anyway. And no one's that stupid, are they?

Bloody builders and their noisy toys.

Maybe they just have a power tool fetish and they aren't actually doing anything constructive, just getting off to the sound of industrial noise...It's a possibility.

And there was I having just reached the point where I could sleep through it.

There is nothing more irritating that the sounds of constant renovation. I love my silence.

Ugh, construction noise is one of the worst health triggers for me. I hope they finish soon.

Recommendations:

Something like this

With earplugs underneath. If normal ear plugs don't fit your ears well, some of the gimmicky looking ones actually do work:

Best to look ridiculous with all sorts of hearing protection, rather than getting screwed up from noise. Turns out it's common for people with CFS to have all sorts of sensory hypersensitivity. I was mostly in denial about mine until it got worse and commanded attention.

So, protect what you've got.

I just sold my noise cancelling headphones on ebay, would you believe? For half of what I paid.

I tried them once while in hospital, and found them no use for random hospital noise. Ye old cheap disposable foam plugs were more effective (and less cumbersome).

However, they'd have probably had the right properties to manage the current noise problem.

They arrived at the buyer's place today and the buyer is delighted. I got excellent feedback.

PS. Nice to see you!

George next door said he was putting in 'more power points than the single one in the bedroom'.

Why it took 3 days and SO much thumping I have no idea!! It's just awful, isn't it! You just can't escape it.

He very nearly broke me when he renovated his bathroom when he first moved in, and had someone with a jackhammer going in there for 3 days straight. I was in tears on the second day.....these walls are thin - I can hear his shower and when he flushes the loo.

Many sympathies. None of the other apartments are currently being worked on, thank heaven, but they are going to be demolishing the building on the far side of ours soon.
