A quick heads up

Not lost interest, just life got into the way...

We let somebody move in last September as he was living in a tent, the weather was cold, we didn't use the room and I didn't want his little old dog to sleep rough, was planned just for a few days, maybe weeks.

6 months later, running the heating at full blast while keeping his window open for "fresh air" and basically trying to take over the house (not contributing in any way, help or finances) we got a bit fed up with it and politely mentioned we need the room as we expect visitors.

Last weekend he ran a bath and forgot about it, apparently for hours, turned the bathroom, the landing and the floor underneath into an indoor pool, then left me to clean up the damage.

Apart from strongly suggesting that he gets out by the weekend as we're tired of somebody taking the piss, being drunk and bringing drugs into the house, the flooding was the last straw. So bear with me, apart from working, being flooded, cleaning stuff out, drying stuff, dealing with insurance and assessors, not THAT much is happening, apart from another friend having a pretty horrible accident that involved his jaw being broken in 3 places. Compared to that, I think the flooding is possibly not too bad...

I do have visions that involve a meat cleaver, but the de-humidifier could possibly deal with the moisture from the blood but not the stains and currently I don't need a bigger mess.

Life is what happens when you're busy making plans....
