My neighbour is so nosy, his wife told him off for staring at me & I grew a tree for privacy but that didn’t stop him | The Sun

A WOMAN who was sick of her nosey neighbour watching her in her own garden admitted that she'd had enough.

She vented on Mumsnet, explaining the entire thing, and it turns out it's been happening for a while.

The mum admitted that she loves where she lives and generally gets on with her next door neighbours.

My next-door neighbours are generally really kind and pop round to feed the cat when I'm away, put my bins out, help me with jobs I'm stuck with," she explained.

But the single mum noticed that her married neighbour had started peeping out of his window to watch her whenever she was in her garden.

She said: "When I was sunbathing on my trampoline he text me to check I was ok as he had 'noticed' I'd been asleep for a while.

"He regularly comments on what I've been doing when I've been in my garden.

On a number of occasions I've directly told him to stop nosing into my garden, and also in front of his wife, she told him off too."

The mum revealed that she's growing a tree "to try and mask his view", but when she returned from a short break he's chopped it down to the level of the fence.

"I'm amused but equally fuming," she quipped.

Although she has plants to add a canopy to cover the patio she was still furious with the neighbour.

She asked other parents: "How would you approach this? They are generally really nice and kind people, but this is just a step over the mark."

One mum wrote: "Unfortunately sometimes you need to be a bit bridge burney with neighbours, but in the case of this peeping tom, maybe not so unfortunate."

A second said: "Just ask him directly why he trimmed the tree. Then ask him not to as you're growing it for privacy."
