    Have managed to keep working for all but a few days. Off because of the snow at the moment. Things are looking a bit grim though.

    I've been lucky enough to keep several weeks worth of work in front of me since November, but dont get me wrong because 2009 was a struggle and I did hee haw for a few months like many others. Whats different from last year and has paid off bigtime is that I haven't been anywhere near a site and was grudgingly taking on jobs I wouldnt normally touch with a bargepole just for the sake of bringing in some kind of income to pay the bills. The referrals and follow up work I've got from even the shittiest of jobs has been better than expected.

    I already sent you my only contact I have in the Midlands wolfy, sorry I dont know anyone else in those parts. Do you check out our jobs section in the members area?

    It's always quite at this time of year from memory - most commercial site will have on the billboards outside opening end of the year , which means the next project has to get out of the ground before we can start the finishing process.

    If memory serves me right normally pick up around March

    You right that the contractor are not giving nay kind fo work., they are just focus on the new job which provide good salary to them. For that need to saerch on the internet and they pick the projects prom there. There are many companies they are providing projects on the internet.
