    7.5 (though some comfort is drawn from the fact it was over 12 at this point last week) even though there is a rise from 6.7 yesterday.

    Neighbours really can make life close to unbearable. I moved to a very rural area to escape the noise of other people. It's just a different kind of noise! If there's a next time....isolation for me. I hope it eases, pal.
