Nail brushes can be quite effectivge, and I understand they're even starting to become available north of the M4...

Makes sense, especially since people in the south rarely find themselves in a position to get soil under their nails.

So, after phoning the landlady at the start of the week to complain about the shower not working and having her hang up on us twice, we have been given two months notice.

What a fucking joke.


At least that horrible woman will be behind us soon.

Is that legal to evict you for complaining about something it is the landlord's duty to remedy? It wouldn't be over here, and you could take her to court for a fairly large amount of money. Are you on a tenancy at will or on a lease/

True, but we expect general cleanliness in both household and estate staff, even if they are northerners.

The problem we have is after 6 months we never received a new contract to sign to renew it. So yeah.

Fun. But according to the housing charity Shelter the notice she served us isn't legally binding because she has missed out certain aspects of it.

Not during the term of the lease. But from what strawhat says, due to holding the property beyond the original term she has a statutary shorthold tenancy, which can be terminated at any time by service of 2 months' notice to quit. No reason needs to be given for the notice.

We had a spammer on the other forum where I post yesterday. It wasn't 11 pages, though. The spammer there only made three posts.

Perhaps it makes it easy to take off in the event of an emergency. Or maybe they're just fantastically cheap to make.

It ensures the surgeon has ex-stent-sive access...

Why is filoboy such an idiot???

He was supposed to come to my office at 15.15 today to get his id card renewed, and didn't turn up.

I eventually managed to phone him at home, and he was all indignant - 'There's NO WAY I could have made it there by 15:15!!!!!' as if I were a fool.

'But you were the one who told me you would be there at that time'
'Well, yeah, but I hadn't calculated that I had to catch the train, had I? I was only thinking about what time schools was over' . Said as though this were perfectly normal, and I should have thought of it.

Sometimes I feel as though I'm living in an episode of 'Outnumbered'.
