    Was having a great day until I got to a really posh house to do a gutter camera survey & quote. There I am with me pole and g7 camera looking the part but the bloody thing would not work. It’s now in a thousand pieces on the side in the kitchen and there is no way I'm going to get that lot back together :D

    Anyhow the good news is after explaining I would have to visually check so sorry can't show any pics as my camera was broke I got me gutter clearing ladder setup and the lady was so impressed I still got the job.

    Don't think her window cleaner is going to be none too pleased as she said I will phone him to cancel as I want a professional to clear the guttering properly :)
