its 500 a week less tax, i work for a subby and i have to say he is fair enough only its a grueling slog every day, i leave the house at 6.15 and its near 6 in the evening when i get home.
i,m in n.ireland,if any of you gents have any offers of work i could be persuaded out of retirement ;)...
well after 31 years and 2 operations on my arms i,m hanging the tools up,i,ve been offered a job as a sparks mate , not sure if i,m wise but gonna give it a go. sick to the teeth of working like fukc for £400 a week
well went shopping yeserday, bought a mt 13x5 stainless and guess what bought a nela s*p*r*lex. i was skimming over hard coat, had a few blisters tried the nela on them but it just goes over them. good job for the last run on ceilings though
aye mt are hard to beat, won,t be getting a s*p*r*lex though. i,m not a big fan of them, call me old fashioned but after 30 years plastering i believe the only way to finish skim is with a good sharp carbon trowel
told him he would have to replace them. will get it sorted in the morning, he wrecked the 2 trowels a float a plastic float and a purdy brush. its not the value of the tools its getting new trowels broken in
had a dick head run over me toolbag yesterday with a telehandler, killed my 2 marshalltown skimming trowels, had one 30 years. so in the market for a couple of new ones, what do you think of the tysack stainless steel ones
well almost 4 weeks since the op, still no movement the physio said i will get the sling of in about 3 weeks but i,m not allowed to lift anything heavier than 5lb for 4 months:RpS_scared:, so no shooting for me then
thanks lads, the surgeon say no reson i won,t make a full recovery, would like another job but been at this for near 30 years its all i know. its not all bad my tax rebate is due in the next few weeks:RpS_thumbsup:
well finally had the op 3 weeks ago today, first 10 days were agony couldn,t even sleep. not as bad now trussed up like a turkey, i had a 4 cm tear in the tendon and the tendon had come away from the bone, so had it stittched together and tendon fixed to the bone with titamiun rods, no...
its a lot easier to break in trowels here we use a lot of sand and cement, I,m not selling all my tools just 3 or 4 trowels that I no longer use, what would you say a well broken in 13x5 Marshalltown s/s is worth
he told me is a fairly big op for me tendon needs stitched some of the shoulder needs grinding then he has to put in some screws, I,m 43 but its been giving trouble for this last 15 years of and on, I will do what ever the physio says. the finances are not good but what can you do, the surgeon...
well after months of living on pain killers I have had scan on right shoulder, not good severe tear on a tendon so have to go under the knife the surgeon tells me the recovery time is 9 months to a year. has anyone else had this type of op. thanks
