    Absolutely blowing a gale here,

    Anyone else taking the day off? Poles have turned into kites - no chance today, gonna do two essential houses (they have to be done today) then im calling it quits...

    The wind speed is far too dangerous for me to work safely outside today and even attempting to do any wfp work would be daft for me to even try. Therefore the work I had scheduled in for today has been cancelled.

    I’m having a bit of a run on phone & online enquiries also booking works in at the mo so that should keep me busy in the office for a while.

    I've also got to pop out later on to do some quotes but that’s about it for me today.

    I got 5k a6 flyers printed for nothing by a mate who is a printer
    I hate delivering them and isn't the most efficient way of getting work but if i can't get out and everyone is at work i stick em through doors locally
    I have got work on my doorstep from them so every little helps bitbi prefer to canvass in the evenings when people are in..used to knock during the day and flyer those who are out but seemed to be flyering most houses anyway
