The Neighbours Are Back [May. 22nd, 2010|02:38 pm]
Tony Grist
Shiraz and Sameena and the kids have finally moved back in next door. Nakisha just waved to me from an upstairs window,  toy trumpet in hand- toot, toot, toot-toot. Shiraz gave me a tour of the property yesterday.  Very nice. I particularly like the little blue lights they've got round the base of their kitchen units.  They've spent a lot of money. The building work came to £19,000- and the decorating and the fol-de-rols are on top of that. Thanks to the aggro they had with their incompetent and greedy first builder, who-  among other things- went off  for a fortnight's holiday with their keys in his pocket- they've been out of their home for over six months.

Hurrah for them, I am delighted. Suppressing urge to rant ad nauseam about cowboy Paddy builders.

It's good to have them back.

I can't think why they employed this guy. He had "dodgy" written all over him.

It's good to hear they're home and the place is finished and so nice! Six months is a long time. I hope they had family to stay with.

I think they rented a house. What with one thing and another, they've spent a huge amount of money on this renovation.

Enjoyed seeing "fol-de-rols" in print, something I don't think I have seen before---and, no, from a literary standpoint I don't get out much. I had never heard it used in reference to physical objects, either, only nonsensical speech.

Surprised to see the OED didn't have an etymology on that one.

Fol de rol is a favourite word of mine.
