    That is a problem I hate about this time of year and going into the winter. I can stick the cold(carry hot water in your bucket) but, not the wind and us trads have to be very careful up that ladder when the gust can feel like some evil bugger trying to push you off.
    I don't work Mondays but, tomorrow's probably gonna be the same, although it's not too bad around Wolves atm. It's important to keep a desktop shortcut to your local met office at this time of year I think as you try to stay one step ahead of the weather.

    Had a regular customer call me to ask if I was comming out to do her windows this morning. Told her will be over in the next hour or so as still gusting quite bad here. Will have to see how it goes as is on the way to a village I do so don't want to waist time & fuel getting there only to find out it's too windy to work.

    Bit of pole lubing for me today. Go on smurf I'm waiting lol.

    Giving all my brushes a good clean while I'm out in shed as well and I've made a little 20 ft chem spraying pole from a telescopic carbon fishing pole, was gonna try a wfp with it but had it ages and never got around to it so chem sprayer was quicker lol.
