    I'm giving it another half hour to decide today, but its unlikely. I don't fancy balancing on a ladder in this weather. I've gotten really behind this month so I'm a bit gutted losing a day.

    Sunny here in Glasgow which is surprising going to attempt to get something done but it might be a waisted journey forecast not looking good, I'm the same as you if I am rained off I get accounts up to date makes you feel if you are doing at least something work related makes you feel less guilty about being in the house.

    I was due out to my first job at 10am. Woman just emailed saying due to the weather she wants to leave the windows? Never understand the mentality, but then i guess i would'nt! It's ok here in sw london. Will go out bout 12 for the afternoon, weather looks fine. Going to the gym instead! Also can anyone help, I price a job, first clean and keep the price the same as a regular clean as she wants to be regular :/ soon as I finish she says ok to go 3 monthly?! I was secretly seething as it had all the awkwards, skylights, 3 storey windows, one above a pitched roof! Do most people just get rid? I charged £25. I am in Wimbledon

    I know your exact feeling. I would personally just put the price up to £30 or £35 on her.Les regular = more work each time, hence the price goes up. But most importantly, learn from it and always charge double on the first.

    Ha! I assume you are english shazzy?! welcome to it's wonderful weather. I had a bouncy castle business years ago, and used to pray to keep the rain away! Don't worry so much now. Thanks tolish, yes sadly I got some work canvassed and despite me telling him first cleans are double, that was my 5th straight job underpriced, Very annoying! Will put it the price up for sure, did a great job too! She then said well yeah cos it's going to rain a lot from now on???????!!!! Yer I know that, thanks sherlock. Thankfully I am wfp so fairly quick.
