I feel as though I am living in a Buddhist retreat.
The neighbours on each side of us have installed wind chimes.
Bamboo to the left and tubular to the right.
As it is very, very windy here at the moment we are having to close all of the windows to stop the continual clonking on one side and ringing on the other from invading our home.
The tubular one's sound like someone running a wet finger around the rim of a glass and the clonky one's sound like nothing on earth.
Some say that they bring peace and harmony but I can tell you they are doing nothing of the sort here.
I could approach the neighbours but one lot are tetchy and the others have only just moved in and I don't want to get off on the wrong foot with them.
So the windows will remain closed until the wind dies down.
