rain gutter clean outs

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

old tyme door clean

This front door really shines when i clean it every month.  Originally was a guest house built just after the year 1900 for holidaymakers but is now a personal home. Its on Felixstowe seafront . I gently buff the coloured glass pieces to clean them using a damp scrim cloth. Its a memorably pretty doorwaybeach2Photo-0023 (1)Photo-0022 (1)

why i work where i do

east-england11is it because i live there already? no its not that,i only work 1 day per week in my immediate home area. As a business owner window cleaner im lucky i can choose to work in places that i enjoy working.If i dont feel a good vibe then i stop cleaning windows there and move on to somewhere with a better vibe. Its not about money,its the Vibe . Of course i have to get paid for my services ,if i dont well that can contribute to a bad vibe situation. Certainly dont stick around if the air stinks! In the past ive turned down some very well paid jobs just because the air stinks ,well not actually smells bad,more like theres red flags + electrostatic in the air- you get my drift?

Thats why people go on holiday to nice places,to get a good vibe. A great view can give a good vibe . So can a wonderful menu. Sometimes you simply dont know why it is,but a place Just Plain Feels Right !

Recently i was reading the biography of the famous actor Robert Shaw ,he mostly played hard nosed types in war/action films back in the 1970s. Anyway he decided to live in a small out of the way place in Ireland simply because it had a good vibe.Actually he died there too,at the roadside .He pulled up suddenly in his big car after feeling unwell got out and lay down. He said to his wife “dont leave me”, but she went off to get help ,by time she got back he had gone….shaw
