Oh that is bad news Ben, it's a shame when people keep their places nice too, I have seen some horrible houses in my travels especially one that had an indoor rabbit :nono:

I have a domestic cleaner that comes round every week and cleans the whole house so it's always spotless. The whole place is in MUCH better condition than it was when we moved in, we've never missed the rent, never upset the neighbours so don't know why he's being such an arse. I had my heart set on those caiques.

That's a real shame Ben, what a git!! maybe its time for that move North?

 

They are excellent machines Scarlett and great prices if you manage to do them....as you say negative ionizers are used extensively in hospitals and all kinds of buildings without any reports of problems, like you say they are produced naturally by rainfall, flowing rivers etc and inside the house by electrical equipment, uv lights, showers and all sorts of other things...they can help rid the air of harmful bacteria, mould spores and other nasties which are too small to be affected by your normal hepa purifier, I shall be saving up  :thumbsup:

We're still planning that move but it isn't going to be for a couple of years as Penny's transfer through her work couldn't be done until then. We could move round here again but it's an expensive hassle.

I can see the landlords point of view...5 hamsters? My god those teeth, they`ll have the house down, and if they had have been budgies...well...they`d better evacuate the street!!

 

It`s fine if people who rent out houses say no pets, that`s their choice, but to agree it, to have your animals there all this time, have the house in probably better condition than when you moved in and then him do this...hmmm.....small penis me think!!

Definitely small penis! He hasn't done loads of things as well and we haven't complained. The electric shower has been broken for 8 months, it was melting on the wall and giving electric shocks, the drain out the back has been blocked since we moved in and the window leaks in one of the bedrooms. I offered to sort it all out but he said he'd do it. Well, I'm still waiting and now he's done this.
Really, really p***ed me off.

Evening All... Haha....

 

Not been on all day, bro been here as he's on his way to Shetland.

 

I did manage to get some time this arvo to, for the first time get Jasper into the travel cage and have him outside for a while. He seemed to love it. The fresh air must do him good.

 

I am gonna try to catch up on a few posts now

 

Cheers

Hello everyone, hope you're all having a nice day.
Had our annual landlord inspection today, for some reason he's decided he doesn't want pets? Can't understand why as he didn't mind last year, the house is spotless so I can't understand his problem.
He told us to get rid of the birds which I quickly and politely told him will never happen, it's put a spanner in the works with the caiques I wanted as well as the puppy Penny wanted as he's put it in writing that we are not allowed any more pets. He's written down what we have and plans another inspection.
What a git, we didn't plan to move for a couple of years so we can't move house in protest. :( bad day.
