I did a clinical shift on Friday, and one thing that I’d forgotten about was the joy of trying to find houses when everybody seems to think that having a house number displayed on their property is above them !!
Even if you don’t think you’ll need your house to be numbered, it does help others be able to find other properties, and do so quickly. The standard rules about odd one side and even on the other are no longer guaranteed, especially in cul-de-sacs, and as I discovered a while back, that are broken by a traffic island.
So, make sure you have a nice visible number on your house, encourage your neighbours to do the same, and in the meantime don’t worry about the strange hooded figure holding a bag that is shining a very bright torch onto each door in your street !
