Mutterings of a Fool

Man, Dad, Runner, Chief dog walker

The bonfire night scrooge

Can you hear that?


*peers through curtains at neighbour’s garden*

Who do they think they are? Inconsiderate bastards, don’t they know we have 2 young children in this house AND a dog?

Shouldn’t they warn us before doing it?

Isn’t there a law now about setting off fireworks at home?

*tuts loudly*

I bet there’s bloody teenagers from the estate down the road setting them off too.

God, how long are they going to go on for? There is no way the children are going to sleep through this.

If they don’t stop soon I’m going round there with my hose pipe, let’s see them try to set off fireworks then.

Well one thing is for sure, I’m not keeping Henry quiet at 5am on the weekends now.

*big sigh, mutters under breath, goes on Twitter to complain*



  1. Said the same myself tonight!

  2. I can’t work out if you’re serious or it’s a twitter parody….

    If the former, give it 5 years. The latter – *smirks*

  3. Our neighbors also lighted fireworks last night. I kinda like them but my three-year-old said, “It’s too noisy mummy!” I guess she agrees with you!

  4. I have been complaining about this too! I don’t think it should be allowed for people to just buy fireworks to set off whenever they please, don’t they even think about the fact there are parents near by who have just spent hours trying to get their kids to sleep?!!
