The little house of horrors

I received an e mail from my tenants to say they were moving out, so I hot footed it back to the UK to have a look at my little house, to say I gnashed my teeth and pulled my hair would be an understatement. I don’t want to embarrass Mr Jamie Kimpton and Miss Sarah Hudson so I will give them both an alias, so lets use the names Mucker 1 and Mucker 2

The Muckers

As I walked through my little house, my emotions changed from sadness to anger and finally to utter disbelief. let me fast forward to my bedroom. Originally it was decorated in white and magnolia, and had some nice solid wood bedroom furniture.

My boring but sensible wall.

Now I know not everybody likes magnolia paint and wooden furniture, but can you imagine my horror when I found my bedroom had been transmogrified into a scene from the jungle book!

Apparently jungle decor is all the rage and is that my white chest of drawers from the other bedroom???  (Speech bubbles added by me)

My lovely wardrobe is missing and all that is left is one mirrored door. I think the muckers forgot to take it, when they took the rest of the wardrobe and my fridge.

The incident of the missing wardrobe

While I was trying to work out if I had somehow been transported into a parallel universe, a thought did occur to me…. Was Jamie, oops Mucker one, an animal in the bedroom?

Did he need the jungle decor to help him along a little bit?  I decided to do a little research on the internet and I came across the following picture of Jamie

  1. Oh, cripes. You’re going to need a tanker of magnolia to paint over that little fresco – your bedroom has become a jungle version of the Sistine chapel in your absence. To be fair, I think the painting is well done, but a bit OTT for grown -ups. If you like, I can help you to paint over it with my legendary stick men.
