and nothing can surprise you. Something comes along and does just that.

My neighbours across the road have just pulled up, taken beach things out of the car and tossed them over the gate, then took grisly baby out of the car
No they didn´t toss her over the gate !!
They niffed at her nappy so Dad took hold of her whilst Mum went in the house, brought out a clean nappy and changed her in the street (not even on their porch but in Dads arms) then loaded her back in the car whilst Mum went back in and came out with another clean nappy before they drove away again.

Baby girl is about 4/5mths old (if that) do they not have nappy bags out here, more to the point wouldn´t it made more sense to take baby in the house and change her ?
Talk about confusing me.

A little bit of a clean and a cuddle wouldn't have gone amiss.

Poor little girl. :-(

She got the cuddle from Dad but even if only a wet nappy a bit of a clean and smellies on wouldn´t have gone amiss

She obviously has to fit into their life style rather than they accommodate her, poor little thing. At least they didn't hurl the dirty nappy into the street as some people do, they stop in laybys and change the baby and leave the dirty nappy on the grass verge or whereever, it's disgusting.

Glad you are 'getting to know' the neighbours Uzzi lol

lol Liz, the house across the road is a holiday home for Mum and Dad and 3 brothers with their wives and children. Mum and Dad okay when we have seen them (only once so far) the brother with eldest child, she is about 5/6 friendly child makes me grin as she is a happy soul who sings away to herself whilst on swing. They are friendly lots of smiles and holas . Brother with baby boy friendly and considerate, you often see them creeping out the house in the morning with baby in pushchair trying to sush the child and when all else fails he puts him in the car and takes him for a drive. Those 2 were here for the last 2 weeks.
But this one is really ignorant and arrogant. I will not have a rant about him just pray that they are only here for the weekend :-D

There's always one eh Uzzi? Shame the families don't get together so this couple can learn some better parenting skills from the others.

Grit your teeth, hon!
