I live in a house own by the kommune (a part of a county, can’t remember the word – sorry) where I’m pastor. As a pastor I’m bound to live here, and mostly that is quite all right.
But today there was two men in my cellar, they even tried to open the door leading up in my part of the house. I really didn’t like it, felt like they were invading my space. And they didn’t even ask!
Usually I think of this house as all mine; but there is another apartment too. Much smaller than mine and only on the second floor. Today these men came by to look at it. The last year this apartment has been empty, and before that there was a teacher living there who was both quiet and nice. In the summer he went away, so he didn’t bother me at all. Now I wonder: who’s moving in?? I made a call and got to know that yes there was a man looking at the apartment and no, they hadn’t made a contract yet. I was promised to be notified before any agreement was done.
I have this icky feeling, not just because they was down there in the basement (where my washing machine is, by the way – and my dirty laundry). But because I’m afraid this is someone else, that will bother me and maybe want to use my garden as well…….(yes I still call it my ;)) This is my free space, I don’t want to be watched!
Hope I’m freaking out for nothing! But still:
