(... 'in more ways than one' I hear you mutter)

Aaaages ago there was a thread called something like 'an open letter to the people who used to live in my house', about crazy things previous tenants/owners had done to houses (wiring thing up so that the doorbell goes when you flush the loo, that sort of thing)

Can anyone find it? Or remember anything that would help us find it?

That sounds hilarious. And slightly familiar.

Are you making another book?

Don't remember it but sounds a fab read.

Can I request when you find it you make it available for us to read?!

I think I remember it, but I am pretty sure it was in chat and quite a while ago.

I do remember it. I think I posted something about how we have something like 632 TV aerial sockets, none of which have ever been connected to the aerial on the roof - although I could have just thought about posting.

But if you need something to add to your search criteria, aerial might help.

I just did a quick google search of pictures of previous tenants fanjo, because that's what we found when we moved in, I do remember posting on it but under a different name.
I didn't find anything but I need some seriously strong brain bleach.

Haha Trills, no not another book. (Although it would be a GOOD book.) Just thought it might make a nice page along the lines of our PFB Syndrome thing.

Yy*youarewinning*, will put the link here if we find it
