What's that awful sound?
But just as I let myself enjoy the sound of silence, it was cruelly shattered by a terrible, piercing sound. I opened my eyes and saw desperately swaying tree tops in the garden of our new neighbours.
'You go and stand there, and I'll take care of these branches!' I heard a man's voice shout. And the awful sound of the chainsaw started up again.
It's alright! You can still relax!
As I lay there gritting my teeth I told myself: 'It's alright, you can still relax! Imagine the chainsaw as a violin!' Then just as sudden as it had started it stopped again.
'Thank God!' I thought and closed my eyes once again, ready to enjoy the silence.
Alas, it was not to be, because now my new neighbour took up hammering.
Suddenly a sound of pain pierced the air, followed by: 'Darn it!' And I nodded and whispered to myself: 'Indeed!'
