We have now moved out of the House of Mould! Hooray for us!

Upon checking out of our old flat, we learned a couple of important facts from the landlord. Firstly, a small underground river runs beneath the flat (✓ — excellent). Secondly, before the recent renovations and addition of a drainage system, the entire area used to "fill up like a swimming pool" every winter (✓✓ — why didn't the estate agent mention this?? This is amazingly good!).

And they prefaced each of these revelations with, "You know", as if they were informing us of the nearest grocery shop.

(The above photo is nothing — it was taken a week after we moved in.)

I'm truly aghast!

And it couldn't even have the decency to fill up like a swimming pool in the SUMMER?

It seems the odds were stacked against us.
