We moved outta the other place a few weeks ago...and might I add, just in time to miss these suckers from swarming outta the skirting boards in one of the children's rooms. I kid you not!!! Since we moved to that house 2.5 years ago it had been nothing but troublesome. Thung is, it is a friend's place, and they moved to another country so we moved in when they left.
When you visit friends you don't look at their place and see that it is dirty...do you? Well, I never noticed it, until the day they said it was READY to move into. Not counting the garbage bag surprise they left in the centre of the floating floorboard dining area....that when I picked it up it oozed out watermelon juice and a thousand and a trillion brown flesh biting ants!!! The walls were filthy, so we painted it. The second bathroom had paint peeling offthe roof...correction, HAS it peeling off the roof. The tiles about to fall off in the shower..cockroaches in the garden, ants in every room, cats peeing and pooing outside every window of the house...on and on I could go. Thing is, the owner knew about it all along, everything, escepting the new invasion of termites. He never told us about the other stuff, but you know he knew about it all when you looked up on the laundry shelf and see ant rid, mice killer, rat killer and so on. Oh yeah, I forgot about the mice eating through the plaster in our main bedroom cupboard!!!
Then, I always seemed to get sick in that place, even though we cleaned it, got a bug guy out, painted the walls and tried to make it a HOME. Hell, I almost died when we lived there!!!
This place here makes me feel at home. It is clean and tidy and the street is lovely and quiet too. Things are looking up. I feel healthier and fitter and we are riding our treddy peddly's about the place.
Cannot wait to get the bus here. Photos will of course ensue :)
