Non Appearing Landlord

Probably around a month ago I received phone call from the flat agent saying that the landlord would like to come over to have a look at the flat. He'd be flying over from Australia and said that he'd be around on 17 September.

Oh dear...

Well... we had a month to not worry about. And apart from the trap door being broken, the carpet needed cleaning and the garden needed weeding, it's not in a bad shape. We looked after the flat pretty well.

So life went on as usual and Saturday 16 September came. We looked about the house and Jules decided to call the calvary... well... Dave and Tiny.

The boys tackled the carpet and the trap door and helped a bit in the garden... and I just did a bit of dusting and hoovering. It wasn't that bad... by the end of it, we had a presentable garden (i.e. no weed), cleaner carpet and the trap door is finally fixed... after I've been nagging about the trap door since it was broken months ago!

Today was the waiting game. Of course we didn't just wait and not do anything... we just get on with the day like any other weekend.

Morning turned into afternoon... afternoon turned into evening. In the end we gave up... and now it's bed time.

Oh well... the weekend wasn't wasted. I've got the boys to fix the trap door. And Newcastle beat West Ham by 2 goals to none away from home!

The landlord DID arrive today. At 10am like the re-arranged time said.

He seemed pretty cool with everything.

When he saw the basement he was a bit gob smacked... He called his misses downstairs and she was gobsmacked too...

they were like "we just used to throw our junk in here"

I said... "so do I :))"

they were cool with it though.

memang... penat orang suruh bebudak tu bersihkan karpet, kemas taman, buang sampah and macam macam lagilah

reply to julesd:
excellent. the fact that you're still in the flat must mean that we haven't been kicked out!

reply to sd:
are you making any sense here? :-p
