@stuart23 left plastering but I’d put money on he will go back to it, he’s same age as me was shocked tbh he did and honestly don’t understand why people want too , fair enough it’s s**t sometimes I have s**t time too but honestly don’t think it’s that bad compared to other jobs , my only fear is I’ll end up like a lot of 55 plus plasterers don’t want to say they are all the same but have noticed a fair few seem to say the end is here around then hopefully I won’t

Yeah I took a couple of years out. Actually it was probably over three years.
I bought a couple of properties to do up and rent out and did a bit of unpaid work in a training center (plastering). If it wasn't for my son I don't think that I'd have come back to it.

Absolutely no fking chance will I ever go back to plastering, none. I’m loving life just now and honestly don’t know why I stuck so long at a job that made me miserable. Everyone’s different and I know a lot of you enjoy it so fair play but it just wasn’t for me.

My mates been doing it for years so I just called him and he got me a start straight away. Had to work my way up just doing Saturday nights for £80/£100 and plastering during week till I got the experience and qualifications and I now make good money full time without any hassle or stress.
Hassle and stress this will allway be plastering .good for you
