    As above. How early do you venture out and what is your morning routine? Just want to see if I'm a lazy sod. Cheers :)

    9.00 but if it's a job that's going to take the best part of the day I'd let them know I'd be starting around 8

    Up at 7am and at my first house by 8am. Quite often I'll start earlier if I know it's a customer who leaves extra early for work. I've had a few end of tenancy cleans lately where the house is empty so I've been starting those at 7am. Last week I started a conny, fascia and gutter clean at 6.40am. I have to get up and get out as early as possible otherwise I'd lose motivation. I like an early finish too.

    I agree with all that mate. I'm an early bird. If i don't start by 9 then I will prob stay at home. Hate the late starts. Often do a commercial before my houses. Got an old peoples home that takes 5 hours tomo. Will be there at 5.30 starting on the public areas etc til 7. Up town( 3 min walk) 2 hours on shops then back to start on their bedroom windows at 9. Everything done by 12!
