Storm in a teapot
Categories: blogging mums

When you swap urban life for the burbs, there’s no graffiti, there are no cool art galleries in warehouses or pop up clubs. It’s privet hedges, net curtains, recycling bins and chelsea tractors.

It’s a soft focus landing and sometimes feels like the Truman Show but it’s neither sinister nor eerie, it’s great if you’ve got a kid or kids. We live in a sleepy riverside enclave that means we can feed swans on the school run and forget about city life, even though it’s not far away. My friends say they feel it’s like being in the country coming here and it’s been great.

Just around the corner from us we have a wonderful piece of topiary – we think it’s more Aladdin’s lamp than teapot – see what I mean?


But a local resident has taken umbrage and decided it should be cut back. This complainant has taken it to the local council. We’re gutted. There’s a local petition to save it, but it looks like it will have to be trimmed back.

I’m quite tempted to get out the clippers and shape my own privet hedge – what do you think?

    That’s just ridiculous! What on earth is the complaint based on? (Not that that should make any difference, I can’t see how on earth it’s a hazard in any way…)

    Some people are so cruel and they have nothing better to do, shame on them
