We have all had those mornings when it feels like nothing is going your way, maybe you forgot to take the bins out when the lorry comes up the street or your neighbour is being too loud.

But one mum has faced a huge backlash from her neighbour after she decided to park her car on the neighbour's large drive early in the morning.

The woman remembered at 6am that there was a parking suspension enforced on her road that day due to the council doing works on the street so hurried to move her car before the council workers showed up.

Taking to Mumsnet, the woman explained she had forgotten to move her car earlier and drove around her neighbourhood in search of a spot even though her young child was now home alone as her husband had gone to work.

The woman, who remained anonymous in the post, explained: "A woman on our street has a large driveway that can fit three cars. She only has one car.

"In desperation I parked my car in her drive, I had to get back home as I had left my child alone. I left a note on my car apologising and explaining I would move it once I had dropped child to school."

She went onto explain that after the school run she bumped into the neighbour and apologised for parking there but the neighbour was far from impressed.

"I apologised and she said 'why didn’t you ask me?' I explained I didn't knock on her door as it was so early and she said she gets up at 5am to pray so she was awake," explained the woman.

"She then went on to say she is sick of people on the street doing this. I apologised again. I then said the enforcement is in place until 6pm so can I leave the car until then?

"She made a noise that didn't sound like a yes or no and walked off with the dog. I just stood awkwardly not sure what to do. I've left the car there as the nearest place I can now park is about a mile away, every possible space is taken."

The woman is considering returning that evening with a gift for the neighbour as a peace offering.

In response, many have said it is right she get her a gift and apologise again for the inconvenience.

One person wrote: "Get her some flowers as a peace offering and move your car. You being disorganised over the road closure shouldn't be causing her a problem."

While another suggested: "Get her a gift and an apologetic note."
