Real estate of play...


I'm sure that the occasional reader in the building business - and other work of course - will recognise these symptoms.

It requires an awful lot of good will and 'spec' time to get a development started; a sketch scheme, a few costs applied, a realistic view of planning, a nod from the investors,and all this happens after me and my two BPs have undertaken a seriously hard look at the Excel figures on an ageing computer, and applied forty years of knowledge...

But we refuse to waste anybody's time if the chances are anything less than 'pretty-damn-sure'.

(This could be a post all by itself, and may be one for the New Year, because things will pick up in next spring, and somehow, all those firms which haven't taken risk recently, will lose out immeasurably. We have a lot of markers to repay, and also a few scores to settle - you know who you are)! Did I say banks?

But this blog post and others on his links, had me rolling in the aisles! It was sent to me by a kindred spirit and really sums up the issue!

Brilliant! I think he may have been hacking in to my work emails though.

I wish I could turn my frustration into wittiness as he has there.

Thanks for this Lils! It had me laughing for ages, and I tried to copy it for a post ages ago, with no success.

The power of Google just plonked the exact site right down, so there is something in new technology I suppose...

Thanks for your good wishes too; it's down to links from you and Elbers which has made the old Ipod sing to new music!

As for work; well, we can't ever stop now!

It really is funny Blues, isn't it!

Did you get a chance to check out some of the links he has as well?

They're priceless!

I'm a bird in the hand kind of chap so I enjoyed this immensely.

Dear old fellow,

Thank you for putting me in the picture, time has rather taken it's toll on the memory, and what with the flu, lack of sleep from the restless leg syndrome and the hot brandy toddies, I'm quite at sixes and sevens.
All seen to now though. Wrap up warm if you're out cottaging this evening.
