    First job today notice water dripping from hose reel :( so start unrolling it and see a pin ***** hole about 20m in with water shooting out :(
    Either side of the hole for a good 5m the outer wall of micro bore is all bubbled and deformed. That's KNACKERED :( ring up Gardiners and order a new one ;)
    The hole has now turned into 3 holes one of my clamps has come loose on slx22 and just realised I've left my gloves at a job :angry:
    Could it get any worse lol :(

    Had a puncture this morning and needed a new tyre. Picked up 3 new ones today and almost covers the tyre.. Also called to a house I done the builders clean on for £30, only small bungalow £8 was too much for her.

    A.k mate leeds seems like its overcrowded with cleaners? U cant gain work much then u see 4 cleaners within a mile

    And then a gumtree advert offering 15% off from their window cleaning price ! :eek:

    Squeeks n bubbles seems to be doing well tho

    its poor in my eyes mate like i say if you have been going a few years or more then fine if you just got going last year or now cant see it lasting there all over mate,like i said before mite canvas a whole estate get one custy?what good is that goint to one custy for 6-7 quid then having to drive miles to one more **** business to me that.got to be compact for it to pay in my eyes costing loads in fuel for a few quid job is worthless.

    i picked up 3 houses this year thats it.

    i not focusing on windows anymore just gardens i they come then fine but i aint walking the streets anymore.ive seen 3 windys in one street at once last summer that to me says it all.

    plus ive even now seen painters and decorators offering window cleaning.too many people jumping on it because of the lack of work.
