Annoyingly the prospective lodger didn’t turn up last night. Only 2 of the 4 have so far. One girl arrived with her boyfriend in tow. She seemed nice but asked if he could stay over a few times each week. We had already decide this was a no-no. It is a single room and I don’t want two lodgers for the price of one. We have said we will only take a woman because my daughter feels uncomfortable meeting a strange man in the kitchen in his dressing gown in the morning. She is only 18 and doesn’t really want a lodger at all.
There was a Polish girl I really liked but she ideally wanted a studio flat and has now found one. I also had a lady ask if we would rent to her 70 year old mother. I don’t fancy a retiree as they will be in the house all the time. I would also feel responsible for her welfare and I don’t want that. Oh well, hopefully somebody suitable will come along soon.
I am also grumpy trying to get my daughter added to my car insurance. I am using Compare the Market and thought I had found a good quote. I planned to buy it on one credit card and then transfer the balance to my other 0% interest one. However they upped the quote by £65 when they found I had attended a speed awareness course last year. I was furious! One ticket in over 30 years of driving and that makes me a risky driver. I have already taken my punishment of £100 and lost a day to attend the course, which already made me mad, and now this. I wouldn’t mind if I was a girl racer but far from it! I told them to stick it and have gone back to square one.
My daughter will be paying the extra herself now that she is a working girl. Just as well as I can’t afford £1000 a year for my car insurance. I paid £160 last year.
I can’t even work out my frustration in the garden as it is currently pouring. I think I need to do some yoga!
On the plus side we all really enjoyed the film last night, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. If I do finally get my insurance through Compare the Market I will be able to use their two for one cinema offer and maybe we will go more often. We hardly ever do! Ok, back to finding a great deal…
