The Landlady

I was going to do a list of things I’m grateful for – like I found at Wenchy‘s blog, but I’m in a super bad mood so I’m not sure it’s the right time for sunshine and rainbows. Although on the other hand some might say that this is the best time to sit down and think about the things you appreciate.

On a good note our landlady and her husband came around yesterday and they have agreed to do various things for us around our new place. The have agreed to paint the whole place out as I complained that the walls are very difficult to clean. We offered to do the paint work if they supplied the paint, but when they came around her husband said they would get someone to do it. The landlady also agreed that we can paint something other than white. YAY! We also mentioned the crack in the glass shower panel which they want to get fixed, the toilet that doesn’t seem to flush properly and the fact that we needed one set of burglar bars in a specific window in order to be insured. They made a list of everything and said they would get back to us. She also brought us flowers again, but I think this time they were brought because they only recently learned that we lost our baby.

While we were corresponding yesterday my landlady sent me the following e-mail:

If you could go for

a) a back + Neck massage close to tygervalley

or b)

a classical musical- performance in town with Rudi

which one would you choose?
(ps I only want an a or b )

Of course I chose a. Neither Rudi or I like classical music…she didn’t say why she asked, but obviously I’m going to make assumptions. I really should learn to keep my expectations low though. Maybe it was a “personality type” test. They are such nice people though. I feel like getting them a box of chocolates for Christmas…Maybe some Lindor balls (Leebeesa’s suggestion).

Nothing else to report at the moment.
