Getting a bit more on

Pushing myself to put a bit more on. Not massive gauges, but small rooms, ceilings and walls and getting better with the twitcher.

Toilets, small bathrooms, utilities etc.

Did the middle part of kitchen knock through today as last hit.

It’s got the same on the thin coat render. The render suppliers recommended lads are Eastern European’s in gangs. Work like dogs but leave pretty decent work. I don’t even want to compete. I like to go home to the kids with at least a bit of energy.

Same with mono, there is a polish gang round here spray hundred of metres, mental coverage, finish is decent though

When I think about it, it’s a tiny hit, but relative to where I am and that’s ok. Mrs Jones is happy.



I often get to about 90% happy with what I do, then go back to 80% when I think I get a bit better.

Might tour around the country to seek out the ‘the truth’.

Me too the blokes a ledge but f**k me these guys are rite up there with him for bashing on
I’ll never need to put that much on Ritch. Interesting though. I’ll admit that even my small hit tested me, but I’m pretty much self taught, it’s this place that keeps me on my toes.

Always someone who kicks your ass so to speak. 3 as a well oiled machine would be different to one on their own. Fair play as a gang as they’re working as one. Probably lots of guys could learn from that.

btw, what I put on is paltry. I’m quite happy to have some criticism...it’s the only way to travel.

The least work for the most money has become my Mantra In the last few years.
Ive lost a few contacts but the good ones have stayed with me. Quality over quantity.

Best way 100% plus problem is the lads who bash out the metres in a day make it look like that is what is expected and further drive down prices.

If only people could experience how f**ked the body is in the 40's when in there 20's they would definitely work smarter not harder.

My idea of a good days graft is a ceiling patch for £350.
