Well it's a beautiful day outside in Notts today, BUT, I've just almost been blown off my ladder. Yes I hate ladder bashing but this morning was beyond a joke, first window it wasn't too bad so held sill with one hand lol and cleaned with other, second window did same and then the gust came and seriously I only just held on. I love doing trad and I'm not going to stop but I've seriously got to step up my water production, from today if wind speeds are above a certain level the pole is out. Ladders are safe but not today so I've come home for a cuppa to calm my nerves and then gonna go and do my commercial stuff round corner cos it's all ground floor. I'm guessing by forecasts that most of week is gonna be same so I'll try and fix the Harris later (I split it at top where I cut it for wide hose) and use up all the harvested water I have tomorrow on tops, I had enough to last all month for the windows I need it for but thats gone out the window so to speak. Gonna work on a letter for all my custies as well later explaining why I'm doing this, most will understand and the pensioners that hate pole will have to put up with downstairs only if it's not safe. Moan over, please no ladder bashing I still love doing trad and won't stop but day's like today, absolutely.
