    First day back to work today, nearly didnt bother as I was up late but got out in the end. Did anyone notice how many other windies were about today? It was like a scene out of Zulu, we were all tripping over each other here, it was a bit embarrassing. Even a customer mentioned it.

    Sometimes I just wish we could all get together and swap a load of customers. I'm sure some travel from the furthest reaches of my areas, it would be great to off load my distant ones, and get a load on my doorstep. Come the spring I'm doing a flyby night flyer drop to see if I can find any disgruntled customers.

    Everytime i clean some of the roads near where i live i seem to see a new window cleaner, new in the sense that ive not seen them before, i was chatting to the one chap "Alan" and he said he lives in walsall! Which is bloody miles away, not only that but he charges £3 less than i do, crazy, u wont catch me driving more than 1-2 miles, no need. I am fortunate to live by some massive modern fairly wealthy housing estates though.

    I think my little town must have 10plus windies....only holds about 30000 people lol. and some travel 10/15 miles to get here, I don't clean in there down and don't want them cleaning in mine hahah.....When I pick up customers I always make it clear I live local and that I believe in using local businesses.

    I pick up loads of work because ppl prefer to deal with someone local they can trust than an outsider so to speak.:)
