My Aussie friends will recognise this catchy little jingle from the nightly soap opera that started while I was at high school and continues to this day. Granted, it was quite daggy back in the early 90's but I hear it has been dragged kicking and screaming into the present, with affairs, bombs, intrigue and more angst than I've experienced in a lifetime.
I've never lived in a cul-de-sac before and I always thought the stereotype of everyone being friends with everyone was a soap opera fallacy. But I was wrong.....
It started at the Open House with twitching curtains, continued with the building inspection, where the neighbours introduced themselves, kept going with the move day (more neighbours) and now this - the retaining wall.
We thought the excitement was over, but then our landscaper pulled something unexpected out of the bag. Or the trailer, as the case may be.
We thought this was a nice neighbourhood and our retaining wall has confirmed it.
