What is it with rentals?... why are they all so filthy? It's not rocket science peoples... it's called housework... and respect for other peoples property. Now, I'm no Martha Stewart, but I run a house, a business, motherhood and study and I still manage to keep my home disease free and pleasant to live in. I am not a slave to housework but I do things as they need to be done. If something looks dirty, I clean it there and then. Clean as you go, I say. Not difficult.
Some of these places... gag, I can't even bear to lean forward and look closely at them on the internet, let alone in real life. I see whatever is growing on the bathroom walls from way back on my sofa thank-you very much.
Yeah, you can guess what I'm doing this week! I chickened out last time and rented a brand new house. I just didn't have the intestinal fortitude to clean someone elses hair out of the shower drains. Unfortunately 'new' means out of town.. and with 6am soccer trainings and 7am guitar ensemble at school, we cannot afford to risk distance and live out at 'Gumnut Valley' (my boys name for our last suburb) again.
So as our contract has been extended until the end of June, and as a result I had to say goodbye to the beautiful 'new' inner city, 'hair free' rental I had almost signed up for... I'm on the hunt again. Wish me luck... and stay tuned. Never. A. Dull. Moment :)
Oh and P.S. Nigel (lizard) has made a remarkable recovery, but not without some spectacular side effects. We think he has mild brain damage (a side effect from the worm he should not have ingested) as he keeps launching himself off the heat rock, from a great height, and landing smack bang on his head... which is probably aiding further brain damage... oh well, boys are happy and slightly amused... with an occasional tinge of concern.
'John Whitley' (locust) passed away last week and so did 'Mr Crab' from the Comslie Beach Park, collected on the weekend... apparently he did not like living in bark.. with no food, water and sand.... and 'loved ones' (as big brother added... he always plays the 'you took him away from his family' card).
