Houses

Last week Dave and I decided that we'd like to keep our house on Charter Avenue after all and since I was busy doing history i sent Dave to charm the people at Warwick Accomodation. He failed (last time i trust that boy to do anything) because someone had already booked to look round our house, so we set about trying to make our house as unatractive as possible to the people coming to look round hoping they would reject it and we could have it. Ollie vetoed the plan to leave a bucket of urine in the living room to make it smell, so all we could do was open the windows to make the house really cold and rearrange the furniture in the rooms to make them look as small as possible. We also overplayed the smell of burning people at the cremotoriam (we've only smelled it a couple of times).

Unfortunately the people who came to look round accepted the house, so we had to go to plan B and find another house. We then found a house that was nicer than our house and closer to the university. So to summarise we tried being negative and lying and cheating our way into a good house and failed, and then we did something positive and looked for one and we got a beauty. I'm sure there's a moral in there somewhere but it eludes me.
