Hannah and I went viewing houses in Ballymena this evening and the process made me feel a little ill. It’s a seller’s market right now and I grant landlords their right to be choosy about who they rent to. But…. there they were showing us around their tawdry apartments acting like they were showing us palaces and asking nosey and intrusive questions of my girl. I felt like butting in and saying that they were bloody lucky such a quiet, steady and good person was prepared to consider renting their shoddy houses. Next time I’m sitting in the car.
