    Self employment, is it really worth it?

    What I'd do if I could be bothered the hassle of getting a squad together. Sub work long as the firm isn't taking the piss with their rates. Turn up, do the work get paid. No fanning about sheeting up etc

    Help - is my rendering that bad - (Johnstone's Silicone)?

    Do you think it's a bad job? Who's told you it's not good. Have you looked at it and realised its not great or are you happy enough but someone's pointed it out. For the record. It's not a good job at all. 2 thin scraped back to the first coat by looks it.

    Looking to have your home rendered

    Nah you don't need a machine to render. And proper rubbed up house or dashed with window bands, projective base and corner bands looks nicer to me than that thin coat stuff in my opinion.

    Government grants

    Can you claim it if you're still working? They not look at it like you're doing the double and end up hunting you for it?

    Government grants

    Might be harder for us to get this one I'd say this could be for more hairdressers etc that's been told.To stay at home still. Weve been told to go back so we mightnt qualify? Or at least as easily
