    Its the worst part of this job....the unpredictable weather!. I got one big house done on Monday then got rained off. Got rained off all yesterday but managed to do some internal windows at one house. Just had to cancel a big house today (60 quid job) because of the rain and look pretty rained off for the rest of the day.
    Takings so far this week:: 48 quid!!

    i suppose the secret is to have a little side line for when you are rained off.

    I have a few internal jobs that sometimes keep me going on days like this. Nipping out to do someones gutters later. It wont make for a profitable day, but at least I get them out of the way to make more time for the windows.

    I need the perfect e bay product to sell
