After the busy day shifting everything on Saturday, Man and I got down to the nitty gritty of cleaning the old place yesterday.
I’d hired an industrial carpet cleaner and man rejuvenated all the carpets with it. I blitzed the empty kitchen and attempted to reattach the bathroom light – I’m hoping it stays in place until after the check out tomorrow.
About the only thing we haven’t done is clean the windows, but as it has been chucking it down with rain and that looks set to continue, I’m really hoping no one will notice :)
Today we have to clean out the shed. There’s all my old camping equipment in there, several more boxes of books and some tools and garden equipment.
My parents will be doing the check out tomorrow with the letting agents.
These people don’t need any excuse not to give you your deposit back, it is legalised robbery.
But as far as I am concerned, the house is actually in better condition now than when we took it on two years ago (apart from the fact that I haven’t had the windows cleaned for a while).
In the new place, it’s almost looking like home. We are nearly unpacked and there aren’t too many boxes left to go.
Marvin has ventured out from his hiding place behind the tumble dryer (you could only see his big eyes). We do need curtains, there are none. But as we are not overlooked in any direction, I’m in no great rush to get any :)
I’m just glad we are in.
