    ahh me on mrs js bungalow and others hidden away....had my cup of tea and before i had finished she pointed to the glass of wine she had ready for me.....and another....and me no breakfast this morning....hic hic...

    one job i did was er...er...self cleaning glass...:rolleyes: and he only usually has it done once a year...but i am up to twice a year now...i cleaned the front bay spotless as its always in the sun and we had a very slight shower, as i came back to put my bill in....they were filthy again....:eek: i whipped over them but it knocks your confidence when you see how cruel the weather can be....

    got to go for a break now as thoughts of shazzy in just a hoody come to mind...

    Managed to work this morning in Yorkshire, but by mid day the gusts seemed to be getting stronger, and showers of rain started to be more prolonged and heavier....so called it a day at 1 o clock. Looks like the same tomorrow...as you say cnc the pressure builds as we near Xmas....looking like I won't fit everybody in

    Freezing and gusty in derbyshire. Some gusts were dangerously strong. I had booked lower level properties today so persisted. As mentioned, the pressure starts to build at this time of year. Everone wants their windows done for christmas. Loads more people are wanting internals done as well. I might work the next two sundays as well as my usual saturdays. Has anyone noticed how you start to feel really knackered at this time of year?. Just cant wait till 24th Dec when I will be putting my feet up, surrounding myself with homebrew and treating my liver!
