    Good to see you today mate, I couldn't do the backs of the house I was on as they've padlocked the gate and put that spikey strip across the top!

    Turns out the neighbours shed was burgled so they have made precautions,

    Hope you got a good day in!

    Yeah I've seen the van a few times, but that's a first seeing you in person,

    Didn't want to say anything to the lad in case he felt awkward...

    Tell you what though those houses on mileend road are much easier wfp ;)

    How many did you have working with you today?

    i had 2 years on my own, then 1 partimer help ,then 2 parttimers then 3, then 1 went fulltime , then all 3 . course this all took years . i wouldnt go back to working solo, no way i like the banter and of course the moneys better

    likely will end up employing another 2 footsoldiers in a couple of years time!.
    might need a minibus to carry em !

    years ago, id only been goin a few months as a windie when i got friends with a guy on the cleanitup forum.
    his forum name was Escortdiesel and he lives up in the north east ,
    Anyhow after a few months of online banter he came down to my area on holiday with his family .
    we met up for a chinwag one morning when i was on my way into town to work. we chatted about allsorts then he asked me who were the biggest firm in my area. i told him and then he shocked me cos he wanted to go and slash their tyres and more. !

    wanted to go now ,yeh cmon mate lets do it ..."im on holiday " , he was loving the idea
    i was shocked! and made my excuses and left
