    It was a strange start to rhe day with a glow plug light warning on the dash board , something to do with extreme temperature apparently , Then the two stroke machinery was difficult to start and run , by One oclock i decided to call it a day after discovering the choclate biscuits had melted (:

    Lol no chance. Gotta make hay whilst the sun shines! Shorts, vest, hat factor 50, lots of drink and take your time. Was pretty wiped when I got home. Getting hotter over the next few days and set to continue for at least a week so may as well get used to it. Gonna have a great tan!

      out of interest whats peoples attitude to shirts off in a clients garden ? more directed at males i suppose 

      • If customer is in residence I tend to feel looks abit unprofessional. If no one in I'm a bit more relaxed. I wear a vest most of the time.

        My dad told me as a kid never take your shirt off when working and it is the one thing I listed to him about. He said I would always feel cooler in a shirt. He did wear a suit on the beach though.
