    So as many of you know i no longer clean windows and now sit in an office most of the time! :(

    This weekend however i decided our windows were hanging inside so dug around and found one of my old squeegees. Set to work on our windows and realised how much i enjoy it. Maybe because i have not done it for so long but hey. Was great, was expecting a few brownie points from the wife i must admit but she didn't even bloody notice that you could now see through the windows instead of looking at kids smeary hand prints :confused:

    Nope not just this forum. This would not be a sustainable income. I am now a manager of an Autism resource and information centre. I enjoy it but looking out that window on a glorious sunny day is not nice.

    Not that many sunny days to look at out yer window Gav at the moment.

    Unless yer telling us porkys & you live in Spain really in a big villa with a pool & sineritas everywhere feeding you grapes while massaging yer rubbing in all that oil then having a hot shower & dried off by one of them.

    Do I need a holiday!!
