My lovely Italian neighbours partied until around 5:30 this morning (not the first time, this is almost every weekend) at which point I got back to sleep only for the baby to wake up at 6:17. ! So far this morning, since the wife has gone out, I have played drumming with the baby on the other side of the wall as their main bedroom, for a couple of hours. That was really god fun, with wooden spoons and using the floor (wooden) the door frame and a suitable saucepan (very loud), accompanied by lots of shouting and clapping. Then I hoovered the upstairs and the stairs themselves which has the fortunate side effect of making the baby scream blue murder as she hates it (obviously I placed her near the wall first!). All this accompanied by the stereo on full blast obviously. The baby is now asleep on my lap so they get a break for an hour or so but I need to come up with some good ways of rousing my lovely neighbours from their slumber the moment she wakes, please help.
