Cowart's Common Room

Ok, move over Milla - it's my turn for the bad mood and it's not PMT !!!!
We'e having the surveyor over as we're changing mortgage company; fine, but WHY has evryone else b******D off to leave me with the almighty task of making the place clean and tidy? Back porch can't even be walked through, kids' rooms=yukkk! And that's despite me tidying them regularly. Kitchen....groan should say it all! It was all fine a few days ago but what happened?
And (yes, I know - and at beg of sentence) I work as much and as hard as the rest of them; I think it's the old Ma at Homw thing - must have time cos you're here anyway.....oh bored with own voice

Sorry but I needed that. Back to the chicken poo in garden! Crying or Very sad

Exmoorjane's Avatar Oh no, and there was I thinking it was just yesterday and the new moon or whatever. NOT fair, Pip. But, if it makes you feel any better, you could come and see my house and would then go back and think yours is nirvana!! Wink

Pipany's Avatar Oh thank you, I know it's just a bad mood but sometimes you just need some sympathy from 'people who know'. Hate flipping people poking around the house at best of times and typical that he didn't come last week so Dave could share the mortification of damp spots glaring at you and rotting guttering, etc. Makes me feel like such a slattern but I suppose it will all get done eventually...sigh, off to see Olga xx

Milla's Avatar yeah but you have a reason. How does the house go from sort of OK to complete ploody tip in about 20 mins? Good luck.

when we last remortgaged, the surveyor didn't even come in the house. H

He didn't even get out of his car!

He did a drive by survey!!

We we charge £450 for the privilege!!!

But we got the remortgage anyway - I felt like charging them the £450 for all the time I had wasted over the preceding week with the extra tidying and cleaning as he was coming to survey my realm. GRRR

Fennie's Avatar Pip, I'll offer you a virtual hand.

Don't know whether that helps. I bet your surveyor, if he comes in at all, will have seen much worse - even if you do nothing.

Milla's Avatar Actually, yes, Zoe is right, they don't even get out of the car (it's not like when you're selling it and they delve into every little nook and cranny) AND, yes, they charge for just a drive by. Outrageous

Westerwitch's Avatar Good time to take the bottles down to the recycling.

Yup it is true you can't do everything and how is that we work hard cleaning the house and the house which looks fabulous and then . . . it just doesn't.

Stomp about muttering fugger and buck . . . . untuck your vest (just for a bit) and feel defiant . . .Um not sure about Toady's treatment centre though.

Pipany's Avatar Well, he's been and at least I have a tidy house now - thank you one and all for the kind words; I knew you'd understand Very Happy

At least someone was there to see your your hard work. When my house is tidy no one calls but when it looks like a bomb has gone off every one and their Mother turns up!

Heck Zoe, we had had to have our house valued by an independent valuer for the mortgage about three years ago it cost £40.
