    Had a massive conservatory to do today,got all set up the wind was blowing a gale and thought shall I pack up and go home but carried on then half hour later pump stops,stupid wires coming out of the pump switch is lose and the clip has broke,wriggling it gets it going for ten minutes so going was slow,fortunately they had an outside tap and the pressure was high enough to run direct through DI vessel and out the brush and managed to finish the house,customer well pleased even though it took twice as long as I planned and the house is book in again for next month and her friend wants her windows clean as well :)
    Order another pump switch and tried to glue the old one back together if it works great if it don't :-/ couple of days off

    Sounds like a very slow one but at least you picked up more which is always good.

    I'm pretty slow right now sadly having to put work back a week or two due to son being quite ill so struggling through shame as was determined to push the business at begining of year and get more business but that is not going to happen now.
