glen and Doug well I did start to build a shade cloth wall at the back of the obs got the first panel up and stupid me had a fall off the ladder I was on
fell 2 mtrs to the ground and cut open my leg and scarred the hell out of me ,since then I have been a bit worried about getting up to finish off the rest of the wall,in saying that what did put up has given me back some privacy also the chap that was up the back has since been arrested for bashing his mrs

Geez Mate be careful. I can't get up on ladders anymore (have positional vertigo). They are dangerous. If that guy is subject to an AVO for his crimes he won't be bothering you anymore, maybe less light pollution.

Wow - hope you're recovering well from that. It would put the wind up anyone. I'm fine on ladders and am up your way often (mum lives in Morissett). If you want to have a working bee to finish it then pm me. I think I'm up next in mid-Jan.
I'm glad to hear they got that guy. Obviously has serious issues and shame to hear he took it out on her. Good riddance!

I'm really quite distressed that this sort of thing happens.
I really hope you have heard the last of the neighbour from hell.
I'm sure your leg will heal. But do be careful.
I wish you clear skies and a quiet evening
