Cool and showery
Round two with yesterday's client and the girls came too. They were on time today so we headed off to my town and I showed them two houses. I thought she was going to say that they were too small and that is exactly what she said. However she said she really appreciated the fact that I had stuck to the budget she had given me. She then said she thought she might have to go up another hundred grand to get what she wanted. Wish I had known that back at the start. I would have shown other houses in my town which were more susceptible to please.
The second house I showed is a little bijou - in immaculate condition. It is balm to the soul to be in an environment so clean and pretty with little feminine touches everywhere. In my house even the animals are male. I sometimes feel that a padded cell, provided it was all white and clean, would be quite a good option. I would insist that they took off my straight jacket at meal times, however. Standards have to be maintained.
We went to a bar and I went to the loo and the lady asked what I was having and I said a grand creme and when I got back, I was the only one having anything and had to pay for it myself. Was somewhat aggrieved as, not only have I picked them up from the hotel 15 kms away every day, but also took them to a supermarket to do some shopping before dropping them off last night. We arranged to revisit two of yesterday's houses and I went home and felt exhausted. Still haven't recovered from the flu bug.
Am having many enquiries on the chateau with the immense amounts of renovation to do. Wish I hadn't taken it on.
