    I got up. Looked outside. Dull grey windy wet & miserable. Missis said don't think your be going today. You bet I said. I was determined. First job ok. Sky black, windy sot of rain. Looked up. Don't you dare. Moved on. Cold drizzle. Sky still black. Me giving threatening looks to the sky. 1pm down it came. Black sky. Getting wet. I looked up & shouted
    YOU ARE NOT STOPPING ME TODAY. Within 2 minutes rain stopped & sun flashed through (just). Done next 2 houses & went home happy. Today I WON.

    Just like my day today. Got up 8 am. Had breakfast. Ready to go. Then rain/drissle. Sat inside, another cup of tea. 11 am went out to first job. Started and it rained, just carried on and finsihed. Went home for lunch. Still raining. Rang 2 customers to cancel appointments. Then sun comes out lol. Well I get 2 more big afternoon jobs in. I hate these on off days. :mad:

    i had a cr ap mon to wed followed by an incredible thursday and a crappish couldnt be bothered time for my xmas break friday....

    well we have to deliver a magazine every two weeks and ....they left double and i dont want to do it....the wife is going to try and stop it....i want my weekends off.....

    the will i make it scenario is quite intriguing as i keep my jobs in my head and cant be bothered to write them down and see if its possible....but once i hit Friday...and hit my chair...thats it ...happy xmas here i come....:D

    oh and posh thanks for saying i am not the only one who stares at the sky like king canute and says go away ...i even shake my fist at it sometimes....

    what with shouting at the sky and swearing at my wfp hose....i hope nobody sees me...:whistle:

    It takes a strong will to continue in winter if its combination of either
    Rain and wind
    Cold and wind
    Cold and rain

    In Snow and ice i would not bother even trying.
