As we have mentioned we are living in an apartment that is situated perhaps a few metres from the busy and bustling High Street. The flat is on the ground floor and can be accessed from either the front; main shopping street or from the back where the cars are parked and the school children walk along on their way to school.
It also acts as a useful thoroughfare for people to get to the High Street and this is providing some of the kids (?) ample opportunity to have a laugh by ringing the bell and being off on their toes before we can open the front door.
I have no problem with anyone playing practical jokes but of late, it seems to becoming more popular and so we just ignore the bell. How many visitors are we expecting anyway, right?
However, if anyone has genuinely been trying to get through, please ring a few times and wait or easier still, just call us on the telephone. Unless of course we're out, which is quite a lot.
