An NHS nurse who doesn’t wish to be identified shared a picture of a note she received onto social media where a neighbour had left a nasty note regarding her curtains.

The nurse, who works 50 hours a week as a mental health professional is married to an ambulance driver and has a one-year-old baby.

The note read, “Your garden and curtains are a disgrace. This is not Turlin Moor.” Turlin Moor is a government-assisted living council estate nearby.

The 34-year-old nurse had recently moved to the area in Broadstone, Dorset recently where homes are upwards of £640,000 and come with a £1,700 a year golf memberships.

Turns out the family had planned some renovations on the house but were waiting on planning permissions to get started.

After receiving the note, the nurse posted it to social media and had this to say, “Well this was nice to come home to, looks like trolling isn't just digital...

I'm sorry the net curtain and my baby's blackout blind are not up to your standards, that's the downside of being a full-time nurse in the NHS, having a 1yr old and a husband currently working 7 days a week.”

“So easy for some people to make judgement when they have no context. To the mysterious note dropper, feel free to come and cut my lawn or give us a hand with the renovation you troll."

She also added that it felt like she was being bullied in her own home and that it was the one place that she should have been safe.

"I don't really share things online, but I felt that it was really unacceptable and people in the area should know about it."

“My partner and I have been working so much over the past year. I have been working nine or ten hour shifts five days a week, and they are not a nice nine hours as I'm dressed up in full PPE with a face mask and apron.

So, to come home to something like this was really upsetting. We have taken on an old house on the street, and it is one of the only ones that isn't developed.”

“We are waiting for planning permission to start some renovations on it, but we are kind of stuck in limbo at the moment. We have got a very small bungalow and a young growing family. For us, this is our forever home. We really love the area, and we want to stay here.

You never know what is going on for other people and you do not know when you are going to push someone over the edge.”

She has since received overwhelming support and offers to help mow her garden for free.

'The reaction I have received is really reassuring. Whoever put that note through my door is in the minority because there are clearly lots of lovely, caring people in the area.

“En masse, it seems that many people are community focused and supportive.”

A local councillor also confirmed that the note was not sent officially by the neighbourhood watch and that someone had slipped a note into an existing envelope.

"I can confirm that this was not delivered by a member of the neighbourhood watch. The person put the message inside their own neighbour watch leaflet and posted it to her house."

The note writer has not yet been identified.
