    Saw it as a opportunity to get the feel of the job before taking on house gutters going up the ladder.

    Wasnt at bad I though it would to be but definitely under priced myself for the job.

    I use mostly my hand with gloves and a small garden spade to put the **** in a plastic bag.

    Any tips, advice or equipment I should used in future for more conservatories gutters jobs.

    Ta.

    dont mention gutters to me....grrrrr...

    yeh an extending pole to bring the muck to you saves loadsa time.

    mine today were only bungalows but which genius took the wrong ladder...

    I was eye level with the gutter and the bloomin icy cold wind blew all the :turd: in my face....

    its okay last time the ladder was too big this time its too small so next time I am bound to get it right...

    took my multi ladder last time but it is a ten ton tessie the heaviest ladder ever and ...I had to keep putting it up and down to get through many gateways so not a good idea..

    er ...wear dirty clothes if you can as it gets everywhere...:D

    if one more old fogey asks me do I want a cup of tea....

    honest I caved in and said yes to one as I usually say oh I have just had one....and it was cold today ....so I left the cup on the step and went off to work again laters I realised I hadnt done her gutters at the front so I shot over to do them just as she was washing my cup...

    do you want another...?

    no more tea ever...please...

    and so I got up the ladder with my thick red gloves on and the phone rings...

    its sandra and john can you come and clean our windows...?

    yes tomorrow dinner time I replied..

    oh right I will have the kettle on.......:D
