Today I went to see a client that had been given some old doors. I have to admit when they told me on the phone I did stifle a groan. When I went around to see them (I always try to get to people the same day), I was close to groaning out loud. Mildewed bananas came to mind. The doors were literally black with fungus and had been poorly stored. They looked as if they had come off a skip, and I hoped they would be finding their way back there. and to add insult to injury, the "new"doors were the wrong size anyway, and so after a brief natter, we agreed that I should hang new doors. Boy, was I relieved. Now I have something to look forward to on Monday. I like hanging doors. No, I take that back. I love hanging doors. It's my favourite thing to do. The trickier the better.

Having spent most of the day in Sovereign Harbour changing light and socket fittings, I managed to amuse myself, in the late afternoon, with clearing another load of gutters! After yesterday you would have thought I had had enough, but that's just the way this work is. For some reason different types of work always seems to comes in batches. Lets just hope that batch is finished.
