You will be pleased to hear that things are looking up at the flat. The vacant eighth place has been taken – by a girl!
She’s a strange person. She seems to be lost or trying to escape from something or other.
We know nothing about her except that she seems a decent sort and offered to cook and clean for us all in exchange for free board and keep. She said she had nowhere to go and no money at the moment to pay rent.
We had a quick conflab and agreed to a three-month trial period. Time will tell if it works out.
Your loving son
