Sweetness, The Kid has just announced that she is going vegan, and I've only just become confident with vegetarianism. After I finished hyperventilating into a towel, I made a beeline for your blog. We're having this for dinner xo ps. I know, it's not such a big jump really.

Sweetie, Preston is the new Northcote. Epping is the new Preston... Meditate on that prospect, and see how long it takes you to hyperventilate.

Tell me about it. These agents have been shitting me around for 10 days. Finally I said that I have another property I could apply for (which is true, actually). LO! A personal call from the property manager assuring me of an answer by tomorrow morning. I've had it with the house inspections. The next person who blocks a doorway on me or tries to psych me out is going to get hexed.

Snap. There's a lot of it around. They always play the family moving in card. It's just a way to avoid objection. It's often not even true, but then you're gone and it's too late to do anything about it.

That's exactly what Mym said. We make our home wherever we are... I was rather touched by that.

I did think about it. But it's so good. My old boss built it for me in a contra deal. It's a bloody work of art. And it backs onto the neighbours back door. I guess my landlord just got lucky. She can deal with her karma herself.

What a shame we're on opposite sides of the world. If I ever find myself looking for rents in Canada, you'll be the first to know.

Never check the rental prices if you don't need you. Unless you're planning to go out and get drunk.

Her, actually. She's just ignorant. I was her first tenant, and I dare say she thinks I'm a dime a dozen. She has a LOT to learn.

It's not unusual for 500 people to turn up to an inspection here on the most awful little place, with their application forms at the ready. I have watched people intimidate each other and go into a bidding war on the spot, upping the price for everyone. It's amazing to watch. In such an environment I don't stand a rat's chance in hell. Nor do I want to... I think it's sick, the level of desperation people are driven to.

It's alright, I've stopped now. Instead, I opened the gate and freed the chickens into the garden. They can eat whatever the fuck they like for the duration. I don't care. Everybody's much happier, now, so fret not. I have had good landlords, I've had great landlords, who appreciate the value of a tenant her pays her rent early and treats a house like her home. I leave all my properties in better shape than I found them, at the risk of sounding immodest. But I do. Sadly, this is not of them. She was new to renting. But she'll learn...
