If you could choose a way to meet the neighbours at your new house, it might be housewarming drinks? Asking for some milk or sugar? Taking cakes round to introduce yourself? Okay, that one was from an American sitcom.
Don’t be silly. The absolute best way to introduce yourself is to go and ask them to move their car as you will be digging up the street to put in a new gas connection. Obviously.
Don’t worry though, it’ll only be like it for a week………
£700 for the gas connection suddenly seems like good value.
