    now for the bedtime read....well actually..another cnc waffle...

    well i got this job...and she said she would leave the tenner under the bin...

    so i did the windows and went to the bin....ahhhh ...nowt there...lifted up the bin looked inside the bin and all around...hmmmm

    so i called back a week or so later....

    oh did you not get it i left it under the bin ....in a blue food bag....so we went off and searched the pair of us...nowt ...so she gave me another tenner and i left it at that and thought she didnt trust me i wont hear from her again...

    but yesterday the phone rang....oh...we found the tenner by the shed....well i dont know if she did or didnt but anyway i went today....and this time she left it under the door mat like she did before...a see thru door matt i add...

    i went straight there to get my money before starting....it looked like some one was in with three cars on the drive...i sneaked low and got my money but before i could go a few feet ...hello ...she was out of the door...

    i said oh thankyou i have the money....oh...would you like a cup of tea...and then she said she was off out for two hours music to my ears....so i dont know if she ever found the tenner or made up she found it or whatever...but...

    i just opened the bag to get the tenner and....it was fiveteen...so ....was it a tip....or as i suspect...what she used to pay the other window cleaner....and ....will i get that next time...? i will let you know in the spring when i next clean it...i live in hope...:D

    night night tuffers another day tomorrow...a rather wet one by the looks of it....

    yep sums me up :D

    due to do the old extreme haircut shortly.....wife says i only do it so you cant see the grey....

    many a day they save my life and keep me going when the body wants to go home...

    went to maccy d yesterday and thought great no traffic...i have to park up and go in as...my drivers window has packed up....

    opened the door to a long line of school kids.....so that was the end of my dinner ....so reach for the sweeties.....its okay...most of my teeth are false...

    reminds me on a building site just before xmas and paddy was wondering around with a tin of sweets and handing them out so i swapped him one ....and his big toothless grin smiled back at me...
