in my travels to clean windows i quite often see broken garden gnomes in folks gardens. Theyve been there at least as long as ive been cleaning windows,ten years plus.I never touch them but i always look over ,do sometimes say Hello to them .
Whats the back story to them,how did they arrive like that ? Do i want to know?its the mystery factor i will never know the back story
It got me thinking…. theyre not perfect-bit like people,nobody is perfect nor should they be – but theyve all still got their place in life .
i bought a couple of magnetic door signs for the work van. They came from Holland and Vistaprint made them. i like the idea to peel them off if i want to call a halt to gutter work. i dont always want to do this add-on type of work, it can be gruelling and dangerous due to its nature you never know whats facing you till you are up by the roof – so i dont want to commit to doing it every week especially in Winter .Anyhoo im pleased with the signs .
i always get this end of life scrap dismantler to take away my old vehicles when im done with using them. oh what tales that old window cleaning van could tell! in its last few months it sure drove me mad [mind of its own] but hey what about all the good times ! i patted the front wing lightly and said my goodbyes to it .Strangely as it got winched onto the back of the truck one of its wheels got caught hard on summat-as if to say “dont let me go jonny!”
in recent times we have been doing a lot of these. Its a job where you have to take care because it can have hidden risks.Last week as i got up close n personal to a gutter a dove flew out from a hidden nest on the roofline and almost hit me square in the face. Shit me up!!! Ive now
invested in a selection of gutter cleaning tools to make the actual job easier in the long run
i was asked to clean this old studded wooden door . Not sure exactly how old it is id wager at least 100yrs?
wonder who it was that looked out of those peepholes?
