September 15, 2005
Anyone that knows me or my room at home or in Lakeside, knows that I am a bit fussy when it comes to organisation and tidiness. I also believe that this spreads to clealiness. I must point out, that my mum is A LOT more fussy than I am about these things.
Tuesday 13th September 2005: I have been allowed special permission to move into my room at Liberty Park early and boy am I glad I have. Mum and I walked into my room (5th floor, 80 stairs up, however we have now found a lift!) and saw a very dusty, very worn room overlooking the vets with the dulcet tones of many trains close by. It was made all the more amusing by the fact that the final comment of the deputy manager was, "it is spotless for you."
Only mildly disturbed by this, Mum and I set about hoovering, damp dusting, polishing etc the room. I had been given an inventory upon arrival to fill in with regards to condition of the room so that when they come for one of the tri-annual inspections they can check whether or not I have destroyed their room. Oh, a point on the inspections, if I am not there when they come to inspect the room then I get charged as well as being charged for putting my rubbish in a white bin bag, not a black one…
Anyway, back to the point. I filled in the inventory in a very descriptive way e.g. BATHROOM WALLS = in need of paint; OFFICE CHAIR = faded, pulled, no padding and full of holes. When I returned the list to reception they glanced through and said, "that's fine."
I await wednesday with anticipation to see whether they have done anything about the 101 comments I made.
On a more positivie note for Liberty Park. The security is very good, there is a lift and my room could and will be quite nice with a bit more work.
Hopefully people's comments about Liberty Park will be proven wrong. I wait to see!
