We had two potential worrying things happen at home yesterday. In the night, the neighbour’s dog started barking and going mental. This is not unusual to happen in the day. This dog barks at anything on the street, whether it is a person, car or another dog. At night, however, it is usually quiet. Presumably tired from barking all day, and just sleeps. We don’t know why it went mad. Jumping to the worst possible scenario, we thought there may be an intruder. We couldn’t find anything untoward. In the morning, we noticed that the handle on our garden gate had been lifted. This is was now shit-your-pants-scary. I told myself that there must be a rational explanation. There was. When leaving for work, I noticed a box of fruit sitting on the doorstep. We get a box of fruit delivered every week, so this was not unexpected. In the past, we have also asked the fruit delivery man to leave the box in our back garden, and have left the gate open for him. Obviously he tried to get through the gate, which would explain the handle. Mystery solved. I soiled myself for nothing. I still don’t know why the stupid dog barked though.

Later that day, we received a letter from our letting agency. We have recently renewed the lease on our house for another year. The letter sent yesterday included a section entitled “Notice of Possession”. At first glance, it appeared the landlord wanted the property back next year. Despite this being 12 months away, this would still be awful for Claire and me, as we have made the house our home. Plus, with a wedding to plan for next year, the last thing we need to be doing is hunting for another palce to live. Luckily, after re-reading the notice and comparing it to last year’s documents, it appears this is just a standard thing to send out and does not mean we have to leave year… we’re not guaranteed to keep the place either, but oh well…

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
