The connections we make !!!
Good morning everyone :)
Ok - so if you saw yesterday's post ( HERE ) then you'd know that John and I appear to be on completely different pages with our wants and needs in choosing a new home...............
As I was reading the comments I decided to call John into the office and read them aloud to him.
This is hilarious folks - absolutely hilarious - this man is too much
Suzan says - Come John - I want to read you the comments on the house you loved yesterday
John says - Why?
Suzan says - Well there's some interesting advice here
John says - We're taking advice from bloggers now?
Suzan says - Yes actually I am - I'm lost at sea here and I'm hoping someone throws me a paddle
John says - Well if you're asking blogger's advice - then I'm going to start asking my customers for their advice.
John says - What exactly is going on here anyway? ( it's a conspiracy John - a CONSPIRACY )
Suzan says - Your customer's are clothing designers - what kind of advice are they going to give you about a house?
John says - Well maybe before we buy any new clothes I'll check with them - you know - sort of like what your doing with buying a house.
Suzan says - A lot of them are favorable to the house you like
John says - Oh - ok - read them then
Suzan says - No, actually, I don't think I will now.
But I did - and those of you that agreed with John - you'll be greatly honored to know that he's given you
the " John Wood Common Sense Award "
For those of you that agreed with me - well hate to break this to you - but apparently you're all as nuts as I am :(
Anyway, as I'm reading the comments, I came across this one ( from a follower in Ontario - not even from these here parts - although her Son and Daughter-in-law are ) Check out what RAZMATAZ sent me ( and then check out her link - she has a great shop!!! )
I would be less than enthusiastic about John's pick. I am sure you could make it nice, but I am with you, I like a house with character. This is a very cute house here. Not sure what area you are looking in, but it is near the lake in Senneville. http://www.royallepage.ca/en/property/quebec/senneville/95-ch-de-senneville/1105312/mls26187392/#.UlKOd4bvvUU
You can find out about this area here SENNEVILLE
and this is where the above link sent me
A while back ( RAZMATAZ ) contacted me to ask if I had an ornate mirror or frame ( which I did - you can find the original post on that frame HERE - I painted it a glossy white because it was for her first
new born Granddaughters bedroom.
Tomorrow I meet the Mother of that little baby girl - because she happens to be the agent for this listing !!!
Now I'm going to tell you blogging brings me much joy - it's gotten me through some rough times in the last couple of years - it allows me to connect with like minded people - it's introduced me to many many new friends - but NEVER in a million years - NEVER did I think it would be the source of a potential new house.
Suzan says - Well John - it looks like a fellow blogger may have found us a home
John says - Hummph
Suzan says - I was just wondering, has anyone in your industry let you in on a gem of a house for sale lately?
Suzan says - BTW - this particular blogger is one of the ones that's as " nuts " as I am LMHOROTF !!!
Suzan says - She didn't like your pick at all LOL
Suzan says - She can't imagine me living there LMHO
John says - Oh stop laughing - you sound like a hyena.................if these people really knew you...................
We saw 2 other gems yesterday - GEMS - I'll post them tomorrow for I WANNA live there - because now we all know I desperately need your feedback - PLEASE keep it coming - if only to drive John right around the bend - weaken his defenses - and make him come around to my way of thinking ( insert Hyena laugh here - which by the way is a new one - he usually claims I sound like a witch )
I can tell you this whole process has left me Simply Exhausted................by Suzan :)
I was in bed by 10 p.m. last night, something that hasn't happened in a very very long time - talk about a cure for insomnia !!!
