Hi All

Just trying to gauge when everyone is finishing for xmas and re starting back - mixed response this year from local contractors, just want to make sure we service our regulars and of course the Forum faithful.

Cheers

I'm already packed up. That snow last week made sure no materials were sent out for about 10 days just when I needed coving delivered to a job. Have to work between Christmas and New Year to make this one up now.
Back out sometime after the 3rd of January... I haven't got much on though.

The snow bolloxed things up today, as the job i'm on is in a little village where the gritters don't go, and it's hills in and out. Got to finish boarding this weekend, then leaving it for a week or so to fit another taping job from Monday. Will have Fri, Sat, Sun & Mon off, then back to it. 1st & 2nd Jan off then hello 2011. Got a very busy January.

I made an attempt to get back to site (nr Minehead) on Monday, the A303 was fine with no problems until I got on the A358 heading to Taunton! the snow started and got heavier the closer i got to Taunton, roads were becomming slippery under the tyres so I pulled over and thought do I risk the last 15 miles? I didn't want to wake up Tuesday morning in the b&b to find I'm stranded there for days so turned the van round and came home, turns out it was the right choice as when I phoned the b&b they told me there was people stranded at Butlins in Minehead, so that is it for me now until Jan 4.
