Thank you and some good news.

Hi all, thank you to the stitchers who have wished me a Happy birthday!!

well as i didn't do much on my birthday the next day was quite productive.
We fancied a cooked breakfast. So we decided to go to the cafe down the road as they always have the offer of a cooked breakfast.
well would you believe it! It was closed. out of all the times we pass there everyday and its open. it had to be closed when we fancied something!
Well, anyway we still fancied this darn breakfast. So we decided to walk further down the road and try the pub. Was there breakfast there?? no!
So we decided to have steak dinner each. well we only had to spend a little more to get a free bottle of wine. we didn't fancy any side orders so had some chocolate indulgence ice cream.
The wine was quite nice actually.

Coming home i knew i shouldn't have gone down this little hill, i wasn't tipsy or anything, for some reason i didn;t fancy going down this hill. I had only 2 glasses of wine a one of the alcho pops. But this was the only shortest route.
Going down this hill, i slipped somehow my left foot touched my bum and the right leg went on top of that leg, so kind of hurt!
was quite upset as not often i fall, and the last time i fell was down a few steps, which hurt!
But after this fall it didn't hurt for long, but in the night it did and i can still feel it now.

Well today had some news, a reply from the people helping with our housing and getting our stuff back from that ex-landlord of ours.
She has sent us a copy of the letter she has sent to him. She has said that we don't want to go back living there due to that we will not be pursuing any breaches of the landlord and tenant act 1985 against him.
She has also wrote that we have asked for our stuff that were in the rooms to be returned. and that if he could write to her so then can arrange collection of our goods then she will get back to us.
This letter was dated the 12th may. so not sure if it was sent to him on that date. But sure she should get a reply from him this week or the next. hopefully she will recieve it one day shes in the office to make things go a bit faster if she hasn't already had it.
She also must have typed out what she wrote of what we told her what has happened as this was also in the letter. There is a few other acts he has breached we can have him for, but i think we will do that after recieving our stuff.
This has been such a long wait a few weeks maybe. But i'm just glad its now on the move!!
Lets hope we have more luck now.
So now next after recieving our stuff back maybe we can get a place. well silly to get a place if we haven't got stuff otherwise we will be bored haha.
So i'm happy happy happy just hearing that as i haven't heard from them since we went there for help. Will keep you updated on this.

Happy Stitching!!

Sorry for the absence!

Hello all, hope you're all well. Sorry if you been coming by and theres been nothing posted.
Been having quite a stressful time the past few weeks.

My partner and i have been up my parents to visit a while. We are still here. do you know why?
The Landlord has thrown us out of our place! No Notice of eviction or anything! yes we got to sign an eviction notice, which we haven't seen any let alone sign one.
Just a text, a text to say he has ended our tenancy. he says we didn't text him back before, which we have and we have evidence a text report to say he has recieved it with dates and everything.
one of the girls who live there phoned my partner to ask us where we were cos someone moved in to our room. and then another girl confirmed that.

So as for our stuff and belongings we do not know where it is. To move our stuff he has to have a court order. No sign of that either.

Since we found out we have not been in touch with the Landlord. As we're quite upset with him at the moment and don't really want to meet him ever again.

The next week after this happened (as my partner has had some work) we went to the citizens advice bureau.
Didn't have to queue as the woman at the desk said that what he done is illegal and she has given us a few leaflets and and give us a place to go to for help.
where we went for help is called Shelter. They help with people who are threatened with eviction. well bonus for us as we didn't even have a threat.

As she is only in her office twice a week. We met her on the thursday at this hall in town.
She said she is going to send a letter to the Landlord to try and get our things back.
If he doesn't give our things back, then it goes to a small claims court. But i don't want to really do that as i'm not a money grabber like Landlord is.
So i emailed her on the friday as she asked for a list f what he should have. As i don't know how specific that list supposed to be, i'm waiting for an answer.
There was bank holiday on monday, so she wasn't in on her normal day. and she is supposed to be there today, no reply for the email yet. also she has given us directions on where to go on housing lists and help etc.

At the moment, my partner is in spain with work so i let the woman know about that as well.
He should be back this weekend anyway.
oh how i hope thinsg will work out faster. at least then we know if we got our stuff back then theres one less thing to worry about and then find another place.
At least mum is having a break from my partner being around. as she does moan if we stay too long. it will give us more time to get ourselves a place.

What a nightmare this year is so far.

other than that i have been stitching here and there, but not as much as normal. Been worrying too much about things.

Oh well, send us some Good luck wishes.

Happy stitching.

oh well send us Good luck.
