Noisy Neighbours by Dawn Knox , milk

 ‘Good evening, officer, I wish to complain about my next-door neighbour.’

‘What’s the problem, madam?’

‘Noise. It’s been like it for three days now. I can’t sleep at night with all that singing. There’s a huge choir, all dressed in white.’

‘I see…’

‘I don’t suppose you do, officer. I’ve never seen or heard anything like it. And as for the mess…’


‘Those ruffians who turned up yesterday bought a flock of sheep. And as for the three turbaned gentlemen who arrived on camels… Honestly, the next-door neighbour’s got no business allowing a baby to stay in his stable.

    1. Thanks (I think!) I'm not sure if that's 'Ha! That's funny' or 'Ha! That's rubbish' But thank you anyway for leaving a comment!

  2. I love this. And I didn't see it coming. I thought a church perhaps.

    1. Thank you! I'm glad you like it! Thanks for taking the time to comment x

    2. Very cool, Dawn! I'm guessing the caller is named Karen. She could make more calls!

    3. I so wish I’d thought to name her! And as for a sequel… !
