“Once you break the ice it’s so much easier to make conversation”
Written by Lizzie
I felt like I had left it too long to speak to my neighbours because I have been in my house for two years. But then one evening I had friends over for dinner and one of them brought a bottle of red wine that needed a corkscrew to open. We soon realised I didn’t have one in the house and decided to pluck up the courage to go and ask if we could borrow one from next door.
The couple next door were really friendly and were more than happy to lend us one for the evening. I’m so glad I decided to ask as now it’s not awkward anymore and I feel comfortable saying hi and stopping for a chat whenever I see them. Once you break the ice it’s so much easier to make conversation with your neighbours so I would encourage everyone to try it!
