« Part 3: Estimate Part 4 of The agony, the agony, some more agony and the ecstasy series Part 5: Bring it on »

A decision has been reached. The job is going ahead. One small change, more shelves in one part, other than that, they are ‘delighted’ with the design. This is validation for the four/five hours spent sitting down designing this thing. I feel like I served up an ace – it’s reassuring for my client too, knowing that we’ve not started off at cross purposes. This is great, I’m looking forward to doing such an involved job. I’m also relieved because pickings are pretty slim here. This job will serve as a filler while I’m waiting for the go ahead on a staircase and finishing off an attic conversion. Now I need to know if a couple in Dublin want that king size bed making. Time to start prioritising, organising. Clearing the bench.

Sounds like the “feast or famine” cycle is trending towards “feast”. Next thing you know, you’ll be that s.o.b. who never shows up as scheduled because he’s got too many irons in the fire. :-)
