Having spent 12 years living in a hostel I was obviously delighted when I finally got the chance to rent a flat on the Golden Lane estate. My flat was a mess when I moved in. I have worked hard to make it a place I look forward to coming home to. When I moved it I remember hearing that the person living here before me had complained about all the noise and that was the reason he moved. At the time I thought to myself that he should get a life and be thankful for having somewhere to live. Sadly 6 years later I know exactly what he was talking about. I know this is London and it's a big noisy city but there is not a single night where I get a full nights sleep due to noise of some sort. I am a light sleeper but the noise is unbearable. I am very grateful for having somewhere to live but getting no sleep every night kind of makes its pointless really. Not really a discussion more of a rant.
