And off he goes

7 May

A few weeks ago I wrote about my new status as a landlord, and I got a tenant to move into the spare room.

He’s actually been pretty good – having a couple of young kids he’s out all the time with them and when he’s not with them he’s at work, or drinking beers.

So last night he tells me he’s moving out.  After 3 weeks.  He’s reached an agreement with the ex who’s decided it’s probably better with the devil you know than not.  Or I’m just a seriously awful person to live with.

This has been a ridiculous exercise for both of us, throwing our lives up in the air again and making it quite an uncomfortable journey for both.

I’ll miss the extra money, but I think I’ll just go get a weekend job instead.

So anybody got a job that they would like done on the weekends in the Mornington Peninsular? Hit me up.

Well, after months of “meh, don’t care about a housemate” and loosely advertising the room on gumtree, I had 2 enquiries on the same day.  Both from 44 year old men.

The first, total creep show.  Learning how to become a personal trainer. Turkish and right at the end, well quite frankly rude right at the end. When I wouldn’t entertain his request to let him know immediately whether he had the room or not.

Then I met my to be housemate.  English, mid 40s and going through a relationship split.  Likes beer and sport.  WHEN CAN YOU MOVE IN?

Well, he’s moving in this afternoon.  And I’m in mourning a little.  I love living by myself.  Sharing space again is going to be tough.  But think of the money.  Oh the money.
