    First house done today.. Hadn't been cleaned in about 3 years was very happy with it as was the customer. Took me about 2 hours mind.. And I need a new ladder as this one was quite dodgy and I was crapping myself at first. image.jpg image.jpg

    Six months from now that will take you 5 mins mate, practice practice and practice some more, But listen to stevie and get some mits, if budget is too tight, get some foam cladding they use to wrap pipes and gaffer tape that on your ladder it will do as a stop gap mate.

    Cheers mate yeah looking forward to when I can work as proficiently as possible. First clean as well so needed a lot of scrubbing. Will definitely get some mitts.
