    Hi fellow honorable water-providers ! :) So ive been wondering . My wife is without job during a mental breakdown(stress) at her previuos job as a Clerk . So we decided to work together on -off as she have better Days than others , or she have work to do round the house . (1-2 days a week) Anyway ! Ive been spending a lot of time training her to become a trad-windy , an shes is Now fully capable to do insides / outsides . Its a great help , and when im doing wfp on my route , she just go leafletting in the meantime . A great companionship .
    The question is : have you guys ever or is bringing your missus to work , trained Them to earn the cash along with you . ? :D

    I would work with my Mrs if she was up for it and I know we'd work well together but she wouldn't be able to hack this sort of work. I'll leave her to her hairdressing.

    My wife works with me quite often on larger projects, not only skilled at trad but also WFP and all the cleaning work we do. She used to work in care homes as a care assistant, 20p per hour above minimum wage, she triples that on the glass.

    I'd never cope with the Mrs working with me! On the glass is the only me time I get. Also wouldn't be able to have that cheeky chippy or pasty (shes on a diet I eat what she eats, I'm not a ******* rabbit!!) Plus she doesnt like me smoking so the ciggie breaks would be out. Fair play if you can, i dont think i could

    I love the solitude of the job. Love working alone. It wouldn't work for me taking the lady friend along.
