Yeah Pete - enjoy your enforced 'downtime' as much as possible, seeing as you have a few things lined up. It must be a record to have never been unemployed working in the building/restoration game...

I'm not sure where this goes but

2 years ago we got a new washing machine. About 2 months ago we got a puddle in the kitchen coming from under the machine. On inspection there seemed to be nothing. This has been happening on/off since. This weekend it turned into a little flood. Having trawled under the kitchen unit after painfully dragging both washing machine and fridge out, thinking the worst, then noticed a little drip and a fairly long bit of soggy lime scale coming from a supposedly capped off tap, wherein I tightened it fully, problem solved.

No need for a new washing machine but now have to replace the lino in the kitchen as 2 years of water must have done untold damage. Fucking plumber >:(, do a job properly is to do it yourself.

Thats one job application/CV accepted/forwarded to a client.

First time ever i have written a CV because i have never had to before but what was on the CV was minimal and only focussed on my building work which i kept as minimal as possible and nothing else that wasnt relevant.

Wether i will get anything from it yet i dont know but i got past the selection process.There was a huge number of applicants apparently.

I need to do more of these and make calls because i have such a good CV and a skills/knowledge/organisational/project management base that i have getting work shouldnt be a problem.This situation i am in is a blessing in disguise because there is always a positive side to a negative situation because TBH i have been pissing around for the last couple of years and i need to get my act together anyway and i like having my back against the wall because i am forced to act and do something about it.

He says 'Cheeky young pup!' - He wasn't drunk, he's normally like that (for people unfamiliar with my Dad - he' a member of the Richard Whitely school of punning and keeper of the mighty chalice of Vulgaria)
