Bad week.


Recommended Posts

I got good news at the start of a week of a likely contract that was heading my way.


Now while that is great news I've heard nothing since which has unsettled me a bit as to me getting it.


Then with the bad weather and with me not having the money to be able to purchase work gear I want and need to move the business forward, it's left me in a dark place.


My wife's accompanying me out canvassing tomorrow, we're going into the small villages nearby where bigger properties are and she'll keep me motivated and company while I'm out and will help me price jobs up, not that I need help but she'll most likely make me quote more as she'll want more money hehe.


I'm just in a bad place, what do you do when you hit one of these patches? Or do you even?

Mate to be honest having your other half will probably actually help as people will feel more at ease with having a female there with you .

I got 6 in 1 day when I had my mrs with me .


Chin up and face it head on !

What gear do you need mate?


Everyone hits bad patches, I earned just over £100 this week, and have about a £10 left.. I wanted to buy a backpack this week and will now be put off til next week, when I wanted to buy a new pole so that will have to wait til the following week..


Good idea taking the misses out, I think they will have alot more chance getting work than fellas.. Good luck tho

I'm also in the market for a decent ro system(prebuilt or diy).


So about £1,000 worth of stuff.


Bits at a time though hehe

That's what I'm going for H.


I want my pure freedom trolley side by side with my 350 tank, and 2-3 jerry cans always in the van for jobs I need a trolley for.



Too much stuff so little money and bad weather.
