Bogans On The Move. Again.
Well, it's happened.
For the first time in my life, I've been evicted. It's a rather bizarre feeling, especially as it came out of the blue. We've had an excellent relationship with both the landlord and the real estate agent, but some things have come up (Thanks, Kevni, love your economic stewardship) and we got a letter a few days back telling us we had 60 days to vacate the premises.
To call this a shock is an understatement, and it's taking a few days to sink in.
Of course, nothing can keep a member of the VRWC (in good standing) down, so the househunting has begun.
Along with househunting also comes the scrimping and saving and working extra hours to pay for this blasted..... challenge...and as a result, you'll see something on the right hand side that I honestly never thought I'd put on my blog.
Yup. It's one of those paypal thingies for anyone who feels the urge to provide a fiduciary contribution to helping keep your neighbourhood bogan free.
I did consider having a small nervous breakdown, but that won't serve any purpose apart from providing me with a wallow at the expense of Finding A New Home, so we're all on the job here instead.
Magilla has started packing up her room, the Godmother is on scouting duties while I work, and Spiderboy is getting into everything as you do at 14 months.
It's all rather tiresome, but so is living on the streets, and while we can pay rent and all the bills, the startup costs of getting a new place are a bit out of reach at the moment.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated, and if you are that way inclined, you will definitely be remembered in my prayers.
The landlord reckons he'll give us a glowing reference. When he does, I'll have to make sure he does it in writing and post it here. As I said to him the other day, I've been renting ever since I left home 20 years ago, and I've had all sorts of experiences, but I've never been evicted.
Oh well, that's life, innit?
Prayers are more than welcome, too.
Thanks for bearing with me.
Cheers and God bless,
One more thing... you see those polluters in the pic? Well, two of those heaps are now gone. I don't know if I can handle only having one car to drive, and one that's a whole lot more fuel efficient and less polluting.
