I LOATH the current Virgin cruises advert. Those kids should do their research... showing their parents this would stop their plans dead.

Not in the same league but might lighten up proceedings

I have just had to send this letter to a senior council member:

Dear Mr/Ms Roman,


Yesterday (Wednesday 29th June) the above property was visited by two cleaners from the Nu Look company per arrangements previously agreed. They stayed for less than two hours. (12:45 to 2:30). However this is the least of my complaints as by the time they has finished I was glad to see them leave.

   I previously stated in prior E Mails how I considered the last cleaning less than competent as it simply constituted of a woman shoving things into laundry bags without any kind of system or order for 6 hours for which we were charged £480
   These two men proceeded to do EXCACTLY THE SAME THING. Only they are using black garbage bags which are considerably less durable.

When I spoke to the Nu Look representative who surveyed our home I was assured that this would NOT happen... that our household goods would be packed carefully into boxes that would be labelled with the contents, clearly this did not happen. Things... Anything was again shoved into bags and one box .

   There is also the attitude of the cleaners. 4 TIMES I had to tell one cleaner not to touch my computer set up. When I returned from the toilet I found that my PC monitor was disconnected and "packed away" with other household items without anything protecting the screen. That is NO WAY to treat a LED screen. Especially as the PC was turned ON.

I repeated told both of them NOT to touch anything on the table. Items from the table were dumped into a box including things used on a daily basis such as my mirror... my hairbrush and my medications. Electrical equipment such as my sidelight and electric toothbrush chargers were disconnected and packed away. The cover from the back of my chair has been removed and I have yet to find this or my covid face masks. Do these people not have any common sense? I have to watch a cleaner like a hawk to stop them from doing something stupid only to have the other one I can't keep an eye on do something stupid behind my back!

My mothers medications were also slung into a borrowed laundry bag.

And then to cap it all one of the cleaners asked "Why don't you smile?"  I didn't reply but I will leave it to your imagination what I was thinking.

I was phoned up by Helen Dudley after I called my mother and told her how annoyed I was with what was happening. Ms Dudley's response  was "I know it must be aggravating but just try to work with them. We need to get your mother home". Considering that since this current stay she has now contracted a severe chest infection and has had diarrhoea for over 12 days and the reason for removing my mother from the home was because you considered her to be "vulnerable" it is abundantly clear she would have been better off remaining where she was.

This is not an acceptable response. How pray tell can I expected to work with people who seem to lack common sense and willfully defy clear instructions? How can I have any confidence in a cleaning company that says that they will take care of our property and will box and label items and then proceed not to do so. How can I trust a company who sends people for two random hours apparently as an afterthought? These people were contracted to work for 2 days. Are these two hours supposed to constitute a days work? When they return on Friday will they again only work for two hours and then call the contract fulfilled?

I am understandably extremely concerned with this quite frankly unprofessional behaviour and when these people return I will have a friend with me inside the house with a camera to act as an additional witness. Be assured that if it wasn't for this being a condition for my mothers discharge from hospital I would not allow these people entry at all and I consider it disgusting that the council is funding this company to the tune of over £1,700.

I await your response and should I not find it satisfactory I will be contacting my M.P Mr Steve Reed OBE.

                   Yours Sincerely,

                                                                                     Miss Roberta C  Roe.

Mother has been in Hospital for 5 weeks since this Tuesday past. (Mother is due home tomorrow hopefully) Due to her treatment for bladder cancer she is urine incontinent and gets a limited amount of pads free to help cope. ( enough for her to use 2 during the day and one at night... it isn't enough but there you go.)
     During her stay the staff have "borrowed" these pads for other patients... the hospital couldn't provide her with any some of the time. Monday I brought in 6 night and the same day pads. After I left during the following day ALL of these pads... with out mother being asked. Yesterday I brought replacements. I put them in a bag and left them in a position which should have made it clear that these were patient property. Many of these nurses are clearly awear that these pads are my mothers not the wards. Last night when mother was sleeping ALL OF THESE PADS were effectively stolen. Now we are going to have to buy more privately to cover the next few weeks before we can get more free.

It's bad enough that the hospital apparently don't have enough pads for everyone but to take someone else's equipment especially without asking should be unacceptable.

I wonder if the smallpox vaccine can protect against monkey pox? Would save research time if a vaccine is needed.

Well we are going to be homeless within the month.

We received a letter from the council I will quote....

Dear Mrs Roe,
 The Rent Officer Service tells me the maximum amount of rent I can use when working out how much benefit I can pay you.

As I have current decision from the rent officer I am unable to take your rent increase into account until the decision ends on 26 October 2022.

I can confirm that your housing benefit will remain the same unless you have any other chances in your circumstances.

Yours Sincerely,

What is worse is that mother is doing nothing about it... She is not intending to appeal... she isn't making any kind of alternative plans... she is just sitting in her chair and making the odd comment about me packing up. The only way we can afford this increase is if we no longer eat food or use any power. I already had to use up my Christmas and birthday money to make up for the shortfall just to pay for our basic groceries.

Yes I have the option of moving in with Henry.... But well if I do so I will never see any of my other friends ever again.... And that should be unacceptable. Croydon may be a dump. But it's home.
