    I'm the same mate heading home it does my nut in, remember you will always have windows to clean but time with ur daughter is precious. Are you just about up to date with work can you afford to be off today and tomorrow? Its all about balance but I know exactly how you feel. Peeing down here.

    I am up to date until today but flat out next week so I will have two days to catch up ,tomorrow gives rain and wind all day.
    I just don't like the thought of going to regulars cleaning their windows knowing they will be as bad tomorrow :-(
    Work life balance Eh!!

    I know mate I'm back home now but still feel guilty about giving up even when I know I had to.

    Norm -I am going for about 2years all in all and still have not worked a Saturday as my kids play a lot of sports and I enjoy supporting them :)
    But it may be the answer to this particular case !!!

    Good on you Aqua-pure Portadown for looking out for customers too! Imagine plenty would clean the windows and take the cash and say 'not my fault' when they got dirty soon after!

    But those guys probably wouldn't stack up many regulars...
