    Well, after having a row with my business partner I've decided to quit and start up on my own again. I've taken a bit of work that is local to me and a good commercial monthly job that I brought in recently but other than that, I'm back to basics, no van, no flashy website, look at me wave because I'm han solo. Just me and my little backpack system and some ladders and trad tools.

    Kinda sad because it's the end of a good friendship too but shizzle happens I guess.

    I am looking forward to building things up on my own though - it's going to mean a big pay cut to begin with and a lot of hard work but I know I'll be able to grow things into a good business that can support me and eventually my little brother when he's old enough to work.

    In the meantime if anyone has any work in East Anglia they're looking to shift or rent give me a shout!

    Actually it'd have to be rent because I don't have the capital to buy a round at the moment.

    Anyway wish me luck lads!
