    Im always behind. I must be at least 2 or 3 weeks behind on some houses, thats why ive employed someone once a week and set up my 2 man Van Mount system. Hopefully I'll catch up and be able to accept new work.

    I think that's my problem I still take work on when I can't keep up with what I've got already.

    So you don't have any set work? Do you just go down roads where you think you might get abit of business for that day cnc? I plan what I'm doing the night before

    well I sort of drift according to what comes in by text email etc and then stay in that general area..I try to keep em together doesnt always work...

    see where I was planning to go tomorrow....I was lucky enough to get one booked in by email money left in the shed....so thats where I will end up tomorrow...

    depending on how long it will take me how much energy I have left I may head off home or...do some odd ones that I keep dodging...

    like the one that frank broke the satellite dish on and mended it with elastic bands..thats getting really really over due..

    and the one a bit higher up all net curtains and always in but canna be bothered to clean...well ...one day...

    never know whats coming my way really...I know where I am thursday morning but will I be brave enough to go next door...well sooner or later I must go...not so keen on being locked behind gates I get claustrophobic...cheapie likes being free.:D
