We've had a neighbour move in next door - first 2 weeks I didn't mind the noise coming from their house (as annoying as it was) but they had just moved in, so you'd expect some noise whilst they get things organised.

But it's now been nearly 4 weeks and they are noisy. Back doors slamming, cars leaving at all hours of the night and beeping their horn (can't really blame them for that one), kids playing outside till late at night e.g last night the kids were outside banging, what I assume were  packing boxes with sticks (that's what it sounded like) at 11pm. The other night they were running around the front yard playing chasey till after 10pm.

Wouldn't bother me if it was a weekend, but this is happening on weeknights.

So are you more courteous with noise on a weeknight compared to a weekend?

I get that it's school holidays - but I guess the real test will be when school starts up next week on whether the kids are inside earlier of a night and the visitors stop!

Noise restrictions generally start earlier on weeknights for the simple reason that people are going to work/school the following day (usually). As someone who does neither and simply has two small children to put to bed, I find excessive noise late on any night to be annoying.

Only by default.... we are too knackered to be noisy on a week night!

Not that it matters - we'd have to be pretty bloody noisy to disturb our neighbours... we only hear them when the son cranks his music up to 11 when his mother goes out or the goat is tangled.

Yep that would annoy me.  I pretty quiet regardless of the day.  Some people just think of no one but themselves.  Hopefully once school holidays are over the kids will be inside in bed at a more reasonable hour.  Heres hoping anyway for you!
