When I met my Mrs she was a care assistant in London, I was in town for a party for the weekend and then headed back to Jersey. She was working as a care assistant but a few weeks later moved down to Jersey as well. She spent some time coming out on the rounds daily and mastering the squeegee and all manner of trad cleaning techniques but still found work as a care assistant. We moved back to Nottingham a few years back and she continued in the care industry but this was much to my dislike due mainly to the **** pay, 12 hour shifts and the truly appalling manner and conditions in which you are expected to work. She quit that about six months back now as we are not reliant on her income anymore and I was a lot happier about her not doing that work. However there is only so much shopping and surfing the web anyone can do before boredom kicks in. So this week we modified the system to a two user system and now she is 'back on the tools' working with me daily. Have to be honest, get's the jobs done quicker (as I can't slack off as the boss is watching ) and is good to have company in the van and quality help on the round. Customers also seem to like seeing a lady window cleaner and of course every dirty old man walking a dog stops and says hello, she signed two yesterday! What line of work is your wife / partner in and do you / would you train her up to go on the rounds with you?
