    So fed up its unreal I've done 1 job in 3 weeks due to the weather .


    Last time It snowed and rained I had to move my round around to get the work done so now I have 2 weeks where ive got a few days full and 1 week where I have 1 day full and 1 week where I've got none
    But because of this terrible weather im stuck at home jeez .

    I really do feel like selling up now I can't see this business picking up .

    Can't you get income support or some benefits for low income self employed, as you have your own house with kids right?

    Thats how I work mate. I only have a full 3 days for 2 of the 4 weeks and Ive only ever had to catch up on last weeks work once and that was this week. Thats been 13 months. So its no bad, Its even better in the summer when you get finished on a Wednesday and you dont have any work booked in. its like a mini holiday

    the prob with window cleaning is, that it is that boring anyway, that time off is even worse,
