I have decided to stay up here another year but I needed to find a new place to live. Where I currently am - the landlord is a total tool. In 2 years I have had 2 broken security doors, a bath that hasn't worked, cracked walls, cracked floors, various lights that haven't worked and a tv arial that was falling apart. The only thing that was fixed was the arial and that was done 2 weeks ago.
I stayed here because it is secure and close to work - however, I have a car now and can afford to live further away. I have only moved 10 minutes drive, but I will be in a court, with one side to the walking path which is very quiet.
It has a nice sized yard but what sealed the deal was a fully enclosed double carport that was about 15 degrees cooler than outside. It will be ideal for the birds AND it means Rufus can be put there on hot days and rainy days when I am at work. I will have beds etc for him but there is no need for him to have free run of the house if I have him in an area that is suitable contained and climate controlled.
I dont get the keys til next month, but I am already packing lol
