Being a tenant myself, I found this article interesting. I know it's an old one but the issue was raised again recently. Thankfully we aren't at risk of it happening to us as our landlord doesn't have a mortgage on the property but our previous landlord did, along with huge debts and a business that had to go into voluntary liquidation. Having listened to my father in law complaining about tenant's rights and how he can't do this or do that I have realised in the past that this is incorrect. Tenants don't have as many rights as landlords do.

Just one example )

I had done half the housework yesterday after I got home, mainly the easy stuff like sticking the washing in, changing the bed, dusting and wiping down. I had intended to do the hoovering but my bloody hooover wasn't picking up and as it was getting into early evening, I just couldn't be arsed trying to work out what was wrong (and I had better things to do like 'research' communities on LJ).

Finally, a sunny Sunday! )

From this... )

...to this, in just 16 years!!! )

Back to work on Tuesday and then I'm off for just over a week as it's the Easter break!  Which reminds me, I need to buy Easter eggs as well.  Hmmm, I wonder if I'll get one?

I've just read "20 ridiculous complaints made by holiday makers" on the Telegraph website.  All epic fails...here are my favourites.

A tourist at a top African game lodge overlooking a waterhole, who spotted a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel "inadequate".

"The beach was too sandy."

"Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined as my husband spent all day looking at other women."

"We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five euros (£3.50) from a street trader, only to find out they were fake."

"No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled."

"It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England it only took the Americans three hours to get home."

"My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked."

"I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends' three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller."

"The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the accommodation'. We're trainee hairdressers - will we be OK staying here?"

"We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."

"Four-year-old pupils copying bad behaviour they see on TV, teachers warn: The behaviour of the youngest children in school is deteriorating because of the constant swearing and vulgarity they are exposed to on television, teachers have warned".

Then perhaps parents shouldn't be letting their children watch these programmes and need to teach their little darlings more manners and respect. It's far too easy to blame TV for the parent's failings. )
