    This rain is taking the micky!. I lost two days last week to it last week and two and a half this week. I have several very big houses half done because rain has stopped play half way through the clean. Not sure how many hours I have sat in the car just looking for signs of improvement in the weather. Looks like I am rained off today, but I can never settle, because the forecasts are so eratic and often incorrect. Earnings are well down!. Thank heavens we have a bit of a dry spell coming up.

    I am a bit behind with most of them. Dont worry Dodger, your books will soon fill up with customers. I started full time in October and think I may have too many already!

    I have stopped counting, but must be over 200, which includes lots of very big country houses. I also help a lady look after her hotel one day a week plus have too many gardening jobs. I have now got to the stage where I need to get more customers close to each other so that I spend less time travelling. When you first start you are not choosy and take anyone on....I have got to the point now where I am dropping the less reliable ones as more customers come in.

    You and me both H, I've got a couple I really should drop cos they're a bit far out but until I've got enough local I'm a bit reluctant. Mind you one of em is the house with the enormous puppy dogue de bordeaux so reaaly ought to drop it now lol.
