To increase the amount of light in our street the council have tried to add extra lights down the other side of our street, unfortunatly they found gas pipes and other services in the way so had to add them to our side.

This meant spaceing the lights out and the light which sat outside our bedroom window, has moved to outside next doors window! Wow the bedroom is so much darker now :D

Anyone else putting up with a light outside their house?

No, but the council are closing the road I use to get to the pub down between 7pm and 7am for 7 months to sort out the gas pipes (n)
Means to get there I have to go the long way around, adds about 10 miles to my trip :eek:

I have some houses about 50metres away behind our house slightly elevated, they have their security light going off all night! That used to annoy me, then I bough a black out blind and it's always dark when I want it to be :)
