It cost money too to work on it.
My mum at one time told me I could move into her house while she moved into a one story house. I was to pay her rent . But one day she let herself in and saw I had pulled off the wallpaper and pulled given a dirty carpet and she had a fit, seen it as me destroying her home(although they had said I could do it) and I had to let her move back and I found somewhere else. This is the house that is now mine and I am selling.
