So, Claire, the person from Campbell Property who manages the properties in the Birmingham area, just took a look round our house (as they do every three months to make sure that we haven't trashed the place)...
... And my room's an absolute STY! I was banking on her showing up tomorrow (her letter said either today or tomorrow) but she pulled a late shift today and is still going. 15 houses done today, apparently.
So, I warn her in advance, "it's not dirty... Just untidy."
She takes one look with her colleague (they always go round in twos)... And goes "you've blu-tacked those posters to the wall haven't you." THAT'S ALL SHE SAID! Oh, that and, "there's obviously too much stuff just on the floor to cause any damage to the carpet," which is fine by me :D She promised she'd be back in three months, as per regs - so I'll make it tidier for then to prove that there is actually a room underneath the crap... But I laughed so much when she looked at it!
I'll take a photo in a bit to show you all what she saw... You'll like, it I'm sure =D
[edit: photo below!] Cleanliness may be next to Godliness, but I like messy - my room's a reflection of my mental state, and particularly how my brain works, so it's all good. Oh, and I'm not religious either, so I don't really give a monkeys about cleanliness when it comes to my own living spaces :D
Taken from my door (sorry about the perspective being a bit all over the place at the bottom of the photo, I don't have a wide angle lens on my camera).
