one of my feminist collective was on the radio promoting our RTN and did an amazing job
also just chased up the letting agents for the place i really want. I want to know if they are happy to accept my cats , and i also offered to replace the carpet in the bathroom (WHY GODS WHY DO PEOPLE FIT CARPETS IN BATHROOMS?)outta my dime to hopefully mebbe sweeten the deal a bit because its 3rd floor in yank parlance, and ain't nobody got time for 2 cats on the 3rd floor with carpet in the bathroom! (me, or presumably, any sane landlord) and helps me look responsible and wanting to keep the place nice.
for the price and location (on awesome commute links) it's HUGE (it'd be huge at 600pcm, it's 525). Bigger than here even, and if i get the place i'll also be helping a young family out of a financial jam because they are liable for the rent until may and have just got a council flat. The hallway is so wide that it's a whole second reception room/dining room and both the bedroom and the lounge are bigger than my room here, which is the largest room in my current place, and the bathroom and kitchen are similarly large (double the size of here in both cases) It's an old georgian renovated into flats 3 storey townhouse and it's unbelievably, sickeningly large. Case in point, i saw a place that was 20 quid cheaper and you would've got 4 of that place in the one i'm chasing.
no cats. pissflaps.
