Sadly 18 months ago I finally succumbed to selling my home due to separation. This has taken me a long time to come to terms with , being a house I designed, built, decorated passionately & brought up our children in for over 10 years, so it was with huge regret we had to sell. I always said renting was for the birds. Now I live in a rental property. Famous Last Words ...
Its a brick & tile, large 4 x 2 with a separate office & play room for the boys & a huge paved yard only a street from their school.One of my best girlfriends lives over the road with her hubby & 3 children so its not all bad now I am getting used to the move. I think the most difficult for me personally is living with rules of renting... such as not being able to paint the walls, having vertical blinds which I hate & freaking out if a plant dies or if my kids put a hand print on the walls. Now any of my friends will tell you I am so fussy you could eat of my floor & my kids wouldnt dare draw on walls etc for fear of my rath , so personally I think I am a dream tenant. Shocked I was yesterday when my real estate agent commented on the house inspection by saying.... "It Went Well ! "......... Could I consider this praise ??? Well I guess ?? maybe ?? I might have preferred " The Owners will be thrilled you keep their property so nice " or " Thank you for keeping the home so beautiful & paying your rent before its due date " .... I got " It Went Well " . Not even a comment on the hours spent in the garden. I was rather deflated to say the least.
So what do you think ?? Am I being too hard on my agent expecting her to feather my nest a little ???

On Sunday at the local market I picked up a neat little stand for my hanging bird.
