    Nope, don't even do my own windows. I have had the same window cleaner for 18 years. After doing them all day, I have had enough :thumbsup:

    I do my partners aunties, uncles and both her nans, charge them a 5er each, which is about half price. Always get paid on time and get either a cuppa or ciggie and if I want one a sandwich. They all halfway through different rounds, so a good time to get a fresh bucket of water. Never had a complaint or moan at all

    I do the mother in laws house, usually just fronts only. She's done a lot for us over the years so it's nice to give back a bit.

    Go for it mate. Enjoy. Life's to short to waste working. I can't spend all that I earn in 3 days. God knows wot I could earn if I done 5 days and had a minimum charge instead of my low prices. :thumbsup: The weekend always starts on a Wednesday afternoon.
