    good on ya my man.i wasn't suggesting it cant be done.having a nice littlen run of tesco express' and other commercial work at the mo.340 m2 on tesco express last weekend.and 570m2 of partitions last week.next tesco in swansea just started.all at 3.50 m2.make hay while the sun shines.coz it could easily come to a grinding halt.gonna hit the swansea job in the nights.no one in the way.everything in there taped full height to 5 metres.

    been afunny year.started this year on 8 an hour patching on a refurb!!!!!quickly went to 10 then 12.50 per hour.but kept the wolves from the door.picked up other work around it and a lot more commercial work came in.and the last 3/4 months have been mental.taught myself to skim on the refurb and have picked up small things on the back of that.

    but experience has taught me that a purple patch dont mean shit.keep at it.keep pitching.keep fingers crossed.and hope it doesnt dry up.
