“I will have to give a weeks notice but I don’t see there being a problem when would your sister need me to start?

Say a week on Monday.’

“Is there a phone in the flat?’

“That’s fair Martine there isn’t a problem we can get someone who may want to live there once it is furnished. How much per month would you be looking at?’

 “About three hundred pounds per month.’

“Don’t let it go yet; I know someone who is looking for a place I think this would be perfect for her.’
