    Today my mate got offered another job which I think he's gonna take. Had enough of this shite weather so ill be back on me Todd which means half my round has to go. Can't be bothered to get anyone else. Bloody hard deciding which to ditch & which to keep as 99% are pretty good customers.

    Don't ditch any, just work twice as hard and get paid twice as much :thumbsup:

    Alternatively could you put the whole lot on 8 weekly and then keep them all?

    If I was just a bit closer I'd take them off your hands, I'm looking to expand the round.

    Thanks for all the comments.
    I've found someone who is going to take it over for me & pay me a percentage.
    Yes I could work twice as hard but in this country with the weather I'd never get round. It's over a grands worth of work 8 weekly. Most of them are 8 weekly. I put em on that to give me some space but still struggle to get round. I admire all your enthusiasm towards your business but I'm not that motivated. I'm happy to plod along until I hang up my squeegee. My round now will still be very very busy & more compact. Don't want to employ no more. I do like working on my own.
