    Thanks, I am probably thinking this. I guess I will get used to it. I much prefer just listening to the wind in the trees on a windy night. Also one day DD will be a noisy little toddler and I guess we will get our own back!

    Our new neighbours have three sets of them on their balcony. Three!! WHY?!? They are never home during the day so I get to listen to the clanking sounds all day. I hate it.
    I think one of them broke the other day in strong winds.. I'm hoping the same happens to the other two soon.

    Feel ur pain. Either plot to 'break' them or take the high road and ask nicely for them to be moved

    Our neighbors have wind chimes outside DS window but they don't seem to bother him but I know you can complain to your local council if they are super noisy. If they are nice i would be asking them to move them first before complaining though.

    I wouldn't be able to stand it. I'd have to say something. It's not fair on you. Would you rather risk coming across as a whingey neighbour (and I don't that you are) or be forced to listen to the sound forever?
    I'd ask them in absolute nicest way possible, if they minded putting a cover on them overnight. If I was asked to do that I'd be very understanding and it wouldn't bother me. If they're as nice as you say it shouldn't be a problem. Good luck
