Block 37: The Invisible Bird

Block 37
The landlord of the house in block 37 found some part-used paint tins in the back of his mam's shed when he was clearing it out (to make way for her new pull-along garden trolley) and painted the house while his tenants were away on holiday.  On returning, the tenants drove past their home because they didn't recognise it, and were quite embarrassed to find themselves at the other end of the village with no idea where their house had gone.  Of course, it's a small village and the curtain twitchers were out in force so they had to pretend they had spotted an unusual bird and were following it in the hope of identifying it, thus explaining their craned necks, heated discussion and air of puzzlement when it (the imaginary bird) disappeared into the copse at the far end of the village.
