As my Mam said on her blog, we almost got us moved out of here, but it fell through. We actually found an affordable private rented place that allowed pets. It was only a two bedroom house, but there are only the two of us at the moment, besides, the smallest bedroom was the same size as - if not a bit bigger than - our largest bedroom here. Unfortunately things didn't work out, and we didn't get it. It's a shame, because not only was it a lovely, big place, but it was almost directly opposite my parents' place, which would have made a lot of things easier for us all. It's extremely difficult to find affordable private rented places around here that allow animals, so we're a bit disappointed. Guess we're going to have to wait for the council and the housing people who deal with them after all. *sigh* Still, it was worth a try.
Anyway, I had a really bad night last night. Part of it was, I think, that I'd gotten over tired with everything I tried to get done yesterday, but that wasn't the whole problem.
The people who live above us have friends visiting quite late on the weekends. I've got no problem with that, doesn't even bother me that it's like 3:00 am (sometimes nearly 4:00 am) that they go home. Or even that they don't exactly make an effort to be quiet when they're leaving. But, when they come down the stairs yelling and messing about at 3:30 am, setting Kero off barking and then have the cheek to yell at him to shut up (only not that nicely)... That I'm not willing to put up with. I'd almost fallen asleep when they set him off last night, and it was more than an hour later that I finally got to sleep properly. Like I said, it's not the fact they're there so late that I mind, nor even that they made a noise leaving. My issue is that Kero has every right to bark when someone is less than two feet away from our door and making a load of noise, and the only people other than myself and Kelly I would expect to hear telling him to stop barking would be one of my parents, or whoever I'd left looking after him while I went out (usually Wayne). I nearly went out to say something, but I decided I have enough hastle around here without making more. Next time, however, I will be doing something about it.
So, with my late night, it was around 2:00 pm that I finally dragged my butt out of bed, which means I haven't really done anything today.
I did make a start on listening to "Marley And Me" last night after I did my blog post and commented on a couple of other people's blog posts. Really enjoying it (and so is Kelly, LOL!)
Alright, I think that covers everything.
Enjoy what's left of your day! :)
