Correspondence with my landlady - End of the story (at least I hope !)

Suite of my last post...


I answered my landlady:


“Do you mean you need to take stuff in the room or actually sleep in the room?

Honestly, I would not be too comfortable with the second option...”


I was very worried though and she was not answering. What if she would just come and stay? Imagine me explaining the cops that she is my landlady and I am the tenant but she is the one they should throw out?? I can pretend all that is fun, if she wants to get rid of me it is very easy for her and I love my place!


So I called my broker, who called her broker (and cousin). The guy said that he had received a mail from my landlady saying that I was not comfortable having her over and he should find her a place for 3 weeks.

And do you think she would have told me???

I swear…


Correspondence with my landlady - My trip to India.... in February 2011

I kept the best for the end… I am renting a 2 BHK but one door is locked. So naturally my landlady invited herself for 3 weeks. Has she lost her marbles??? It pissed me off so bad!!


Dear Emilie,

I have plans to travel to India for 6 weeks i.e. (3rd Feb to mid March).  It is just me alone coming down for some urgent work in Mumbai and Goa.  I will be in Mumbai for 3 weeks and Goa 3 weeks.

I will need to use my bedroom for 3 weeks whilst I am in Mumbai, as all my things are there.

I was wondering if you are having any business trips coming up....  so that I can plan my itinerary accordingly.

I know you travel a lot and so I thought, if I were to plan my mumbai stay accordingly,  I wouldn't cause you much disturbance.

I don't need to be in Mumbai continously for 3 weeks.....  I could split it ( 2 weeks and 1 week).

Kind regards



Correspondence with my landlady- Pet Policy

I was nice enough to ask if I could keep a cat. What is this stupid excuse of saying it might create a problem (with the ugly, old and handicapped) neighbour dog. That thing can not even walk!

We have not had any guest have pets on the premises,   as  I and my older son are allergic to cat fur. 
However  my younger son Troy has a pet cat  Frodo  and he has just won our hearts.
(and of course ruined  our furniture ...  using it as a scratch post !)

The next door people have a dog  and I am not sure how this would work... 

They would try any "excuses" to make problems.

I understand you are alone and would love a pet...  but if you could hold it for some time ...  I should be down  and we could talk about it then.

You take care.

Love and best wishes
