Tenants, stress and Tetris

First of all, we have at last got tenants for our flat.

We had a few concerns however, namely because they seemed so desperate to move into the flat Sunday and as such signed the lease on Sunday morning, but didn’t actually move in until Monday evening. Then, the first months rent and deposit was due to be paid on the signing of the lease, but we agreed that they could pay this on Monday. Come Monday evening and this was not paid. I went down and collected a cheque yesterday (Tuesday) and will just have to cross my fingers that this doesn’t bounce.

They should gave set up a standing order for future months rent, so further months shouldn’t be as stressful, however, right now over the last few days, my stress levels have felt like they were going through the roof.

There has obviously been the stress associated with the tenants, work related stress, Elliot related playschool stress, my health hasn’t been great of late and numerous other smaller things which have been getting to me recently. Overall, I haven’t been the most fun to be around as of late…

At least we do have tenants now, which is half the battle won, I just hope that payment from them is consistent and that we don’t have any further problems.

Have just recently read on the internet that Nintendo will be releasing a DS version of Tetris in 2006. In the US this is due to launch in March, so hopefully it should be similar over here. The added bonus is that it was be playable on the online wi fi connection, meaning up to 4 player Tetris fun around the globe! So in the coming months there is Animal Crossing, Metroid Hunter and Tetris now to look forward to online. All good stuff…

Now if only Nintendo did an online Advance Wars I’d be sorted!
