    Gained 4 totalling £75 @ 4 weekly. Dumped 1 x £12 @ 4 weekly.

    1x £30 off website
    1x £15 leaflet
    1x £15 door knock
    1x £15 word of mouth

    That's a better than average week for me.

    Gained 1, and on the road to dumping one maybe two (neighbours). This particular neighbour has been a pain in the **** from the start. Late payments, reminded payments, complained about me missing a window yet itwas clean as a whistle when I saw it, and just generally looks down on me.

    had builders clean today it was this guy who I know, generally dont do them hassle and waiting for cash
    anyway had look at the job
    why do builders have to be so rough, plaster caked on windows, bad job
    climbing on SLIPPY roofs
    weighed the job up quick, took mate of job fluke that

    basically the builder had just left his **** . just let the WC DO IT
