Don't know about you folks... weather has been very moody in Suffolk... Got out early part of last week. Rained midweek onwards. Rain again today. looks better for tomorrow. But, Thursday is looking bad.... Got a carpet cleaning job which will help. But, I really find Dec, Jan and Feb a struggle... Especially when it is so damp. I'd rather it be cold like last year at least you can get more done. Keeping my chin up!... Just lol

Suffolk was fairly flood free compared to the rest of the country last year. And it was flash flooding also. Not rain like the rain we have had this week where it just lingers all day. Only a few coastal areas got flooded. But. I am near Bury St. Eds. There was nowhere near the flooding around this way in comparison to the flooding I see on T.V for parts of the Wales, The West, West Country etc... I guess I have had it to easy!!!... I always where thermals and keep my back warm...

Hi! Shazzy... Keep up the good work... I was doing ok this morning got 8 houses cleaned and then at 12.55 it started again. I kept going for a while. But. when the drizzle starts to soak the windows I through in the towel. I normally find that the wind does this. If it is drizzle and not too windy, then I get away with it and carry on or normally I'd go for a few bungalows instead. But. I have earned enough for today... So, all good. I just get a little stressed when you get a few days of rain. Which has only ever happened to me on very few occasions. A couple of days I can live with. Can get my quota done!. But, when I lose quite a few days I still get abit frustrated even after nearly 5 years of Window Cleaning. Just being honest!!! :-).

I got a couple of houses done today and a Full Gutter, Fascia and Soffitt clean which I was doing in the drizzle. Went home about 1pm... But. Looking through my Accounts I am a week in front of where I was on me rota this time last year. Mind you I never had a holiday this year... and my customer base has grown. So, I guess the business is growing. I have defo gained a good load of experience this year. I have made a Trolley System in my spare time and I have invested in a Carpet Cleaning machine. So, I am building it up. I market myself as a Traditional Window Cleaner. But, I will have a go at most handy jobs. My of my customers are always getting me to do stuff for them. That's one good thing about living in a small market town all me life. People know and trust me. Hope all goes great for you and the rest of Windy's on her for Xmas and 2015... and remember... Windows don't clean themselves lol
