    Summer again and once again the neighbours kids are playing around with hose pipes. It's something they do every single day when its hot and of course the water goes everywhere including over the fence.

    We have washing out and we get water all over it as well as over my clean kitchen window :( and if I go out there I'm going to get soaked too

    I know it doesnt seem like the worst thing in the world but when its every day! I've tried to laugh it off and Ive tried to say to next door could they keep it down a little bit but I think they thought I was joking.

    would you talk to them and tell them to stop? shout over to the kids or what?

    Id definately have a word - i know they are only having fun but its coming into your garden and its not fun for you! Especially when it goes all over your washing! Say to her that it goes all over you too when you are out there, its your garden and youve every right to go out there and not get drenched!

    I agree with others as it could be classified as ANti-Social Behaviour. Okay maybe kids are having fun but not at the expense of others

    I would have a word with their parents and let them know that you don't appreciate your laundry getting wet, nor yourself.
