Well, we've we've lived at at my current address now for 20 years, so we have the same neighbours we are the only black people in my street. People might not think that's politically correct, but I've always brought up my children to know that they, they are black children, very beautiful, very able, and they're okay. They're alright. I'm black and I'm fabulous. I'm okay. Does it make sense? So and we have excellent neighbours, we, we, most of the people who live in our street have lived there before us, there is only one or two come who, who've have come in recently and we are very blessed to be in that street really.
