Architect number 4

I think I am coming down with a cold.  Feeling kind of cranky about that, along with kind of tired.  I woke up fine. Then I started sneezing, then my eyes were itchy, I thought allergy.  Now my throat is sore and my nose is plugging up....I'm thinking a cold.  D*mn.

Blech.

Met the new architect this morning, I like him!!!

He asked when we want to start....already?

I said that yes, we want to start already.

He listened, he's going to show us a couple of houses where they have done similar things like I have mentioned, I could understand his Catalan, he didn't scorn ideas.  He said the roof may not be too bad, for which I could love him, and he didn't seem too concerned about the crack in the wall.  We are getting together again on Saturday at 9am.  I like 9am, feels like the guy wants to get stuff done.

Now he has to pass the man's evaluation, but I think we have our guy.

I asked a friend at work about him, it is a village, and she had never heard anything negative either. They were friends when they were young, she said he is a good sort and honest.  YiPEEEEE

He also knew the house from before.....good good good all around.

This post made me fell particularly happy inside, happy for you. It's always so nice when SOMETHING goes right, eh?

Love the picture of your sailing vessel. She'd fit in perfectly here on the Island. :o)

Isn't is wonderful to find THE ONE? I wanted to hug our construction contractor's neck when we signed a contract with him, but I was afraid he would freak.

Great about the architect. Not so great about the cold, and as someone clutching tissues like a lifeline I really sympathise though luckily I don't think cold viruses can pass via blogs otherwise I might feel guilty. Hope you feel better soon.

Also lovely to get a painting room of your own. Definitely something to go for and enjoy because it is your house.

Congrats on the architect! And get well soon. At least, you don't have to wear masks, do you?

Beth, did my best, all I've got is a cold...he seems to be who we're going with, let's hope for the best.

Doug, wouldn't she just...have to do that one day....

GM, You'll get to see it all real live in person pretty soon!

Hula, not quite ready to hug...but here's hoping.

Helen, a great thing about a blog...guilt free on germ passing...fingers crossed about the room...

Kate, thank you!

ElP, NO!! You aren't STILLLLL wearing one are you!?!?!?

I'll have to tell my sister to look out for you, the only guy in Paris with a three meter circle of free space around him on the metro....wearing a mask!
