    Will it ever stop raining?
    It does get rather depressing working when it's raining. Even though I wear wet gear and wellies I can only take so much as the last two days has been horrible.

    The good news is though customers do tip very well as they must feel sorry for me or something.

    How about you?

    Been a bad week for weather, but not sure how much the customer notices.....

    Had a customer complain to me yesterday about her windows being cleaned in the rain..........it hadn't rained all morning.........'But the windows are all wet!!'......been cleaning her windows for over a year with WFP and this is the first time she noticed the windows are left wet!!

    Observant bunch.......!!

    Had to wait until 1:45 today to do a gutter clear, clean and soffit job due to the rain :mad: got a soaking during the job, but put a cap and waterproof coat on and cracked on. The woman asked me for some leaflets to hand out to her friends and one friend who was visiting wants me to clean her uPVC. So not a bad day after all :).

    Today I started a job at 10 am and it didn't stop raining until about 3 pm so I just carried on working throught it and finished at 4 pm. At least I had 1 hour without it bloody raining which made a very nice change. Also the customer was so pleased with my efforts he gave me a £20 tip.

    I have done loads of car sitting this week. Weird thing is, as soon as I decide to call it a day and put the ladder back on the car, the rain stops......take it off and it starts again.

    I should learn to take a nap in the car, like cnc
