    Where everything goes just right?

    Left my house at 7.30 this morning. Get about fifty yards down the road and my phone starts ringing.

    "Hello mate, I'm just driving behind you. Can you pop round and give me a quote later?"

    Pull into my local shop to grab a cold drink and buy a scratch card too. Win £20. Result.

    Start first house at 7.45am. All gates unlocked, no parking issues, most of my customers home and waiting with the money, first day I can remember that I haven't got my hose caught on something.

    Absolutely fly round my houses, got two five pound tips, people asking me for quotes as I'm working. Got a call accepting a quote for a conny that I quoted yesterday.

    Went and quoted a gutter job on the way home. Old girl was happy with the price. Upsold window cleaning to her and got that too. Did it there and then and had a nice chat with her and her daughter.

    Old girl asks me to go and see her neighbour in the bungalow a couple of doors down and quote to clear her gutters, clean gutters and fascias and clean her conny inside and out.

    Drive home. Do some paperwork. Spend some time with the kids while the wife pops out to work for a couple of hours.

    Wife gets home so I shoot out to pick some money up. Everyone is home and pays. Upsell gutter and fascia cleaning to one customer and book that in for next month. Next door neighbour comes out and asks me to start doing his too.

    Stop at shop on the way home to grab my daughter a bottle of drink for school tomorrow. Buy another scratch card. Win another £20. Result.

    Hopefully I'll get lucky with the mrs tonight too.

    The key is to not get too excited on good days and not too dissapointed on bad days, and just know that its all just part of the process.
