Great idea. Too bad I didn't have those eye cover thingis when I had my son. The lights in the maternity ward had had enough. Those with lights on (me), couldn't turn them off. And those with lights off, couldn't turn them on. ALL NIGHT!
Next door, 7 level apartment complex being built, 220 'telegraph' poles have been 'crash-piled' into ground, some to depth of 12m.
But it's the constant 'thump, thump' that got on my goat! Went out mucho poss, but some days' couldn't avoid being home.
Even with doors, windows, & blinds shut, the noise was beyond the pale. The house shook at EVERY 'thump'.
Puts a new meaning to phrase, 'did the earth move for you'!
Ear plugs were last resort, when I thought my head would explode!
They made a great difference, thank goodness. Didn't have to wear them for too long, thankfully, as I get a headache rapidly with a long usage.
