Moving day...

Except we're not! Finally our current landlord came around yesterday to negotiate directly after hearing that the tenant he had lined up to move in is being thrown out of his current house by the landlord for wrecking the place, and having heard from one of our guards who came with the house and is a relative of our landlord, that he wouldn't work for this person. So after an hour or so of delicate negotiations (including my having to explain that to my mind negotiation meant both parties having to be willing to compromise...) and a brisk house inspection we have an agreement that should keep us here until we finally leave the country. We're paying more (probably more than we should), but on the other hand we avoid all the hassle of moving and although we saw a number of houses that would work, our current house is definitely nicer. So, after all the angst and hassle we're still here, though a bit poorer... Anyway, still got a course to write, so I'll get back to it.


  1. Hurrah! So pleased it's all sorted. Phew.

  2. Glad that's all sorted out but what a lot of stupid stress to put you through.

  3. You've been very quiet all June, everything okay?
