Welcome to ElectriciansForums.net - The American Electrical Advice Forum
Head straight to the main forums to chat by click here:  American Electrical Advice Forum

We have this thread on TilersForums.com and it's just been restarted because the old thread had 20,000 replies and 500,000 views. And there were 700 pages. Started to lag a bit on slow connections.

I think we had a bash of this before, but I can't find the thread, so thought I'd start another one off.

If you have time in the mornings, come post in the thread before you head off to work, let us know what you've got on and what the weather is like in your area etc. Anything at all is fine. :)

Posts and likes get counted towards your total stats in this thread.

So GOOOD MORNING PEOPLE - WEATHER IS NICE TODAY IN STOKE. I'M THANKFUL IT'S FRIDAY, HAD A RUBBISH WEEK. THANK GOD IT'S OVER.

Thanks @telectrix :)

You know those under cabinet lights, what type would you recommend I get?

Maybe InstyleLED do some? (Damn it, what's their username I can't tag them in!)
Edit: @john watts - I was searching for In-Style LED lol My bad.

Thanks mate I'll take a look. I have some from Amazon, but when the kettle boils near them, they detach from each other and one cuts out. Starting to wonder why I got something I use daily off of Amazon. Was asking for it really. lol

Currently trying to get six firework displays loaded in to vans, crews organised, briefed and despatched to their various jobs.

Then later I'll be setting up/supervising one of those six displays.

After that the real fun starts, packing it all up and unloading six vans full of dirty smelly equipment, cleaning it and putting it away.

If we could just move firework season into the summer months it would make it a lot nicer!

I was tied up in meetings most of the day, I've won a contract for a string of care homes so been dealing with that along with a couple of commercial and industrial rewires.
Today got a cheeky lay in while 8.
My morning will consist of copious amounts of coffee and I just need nip out to my sister's pet shop to stock up on goodies for Jack.
A couple of contracts to read through and then chill out for the rest of the weekend.

Tried find a rule that stipulated that and can't so I'd only end up then bitching about it on Facebook. Best keep me here so I don't be troublesome when I come back off my ban and stuff. ;) ;)

Good morning everyone.
Had a proper lie in.... was almost 9 I got up... and that was just because my wifes mother phoned the house.
Hopefully picking up the new van today. Got one same model as I had, but a little bit newer... so the garage is swapping over my tow bar and getting a few niggles sorted (it was missing a rear parking sensor, but they'll just steal one from my old van)
Spend the rest of the weekend fitting out the back with my ply shelving.
Movie and pizza night tonight I think... because the child that doesn't like pizza is at a friends....

Did somebody say Just Eat?
No.... what a stupid advert!

Good Morning People. :(

It's bloody Monday again god damn it.

Raining here in Stoke. Kinda glad, we burnt a lot of wood in the garden last night and I needed it to drizzle on it as the stones I put around the edge of the fire were boiling the water I was throwing at it. I gave up in the end. Christ knows how hot they still were but I was worried the dogs would run over them today.

They're definitely wet and cold again now. lol

What have you guys got on today / this week?

Quiet day for me today. The local Ford dealer have told me my van is ready to pick up (Transit Custom with the current run of injector problems that all Transits are getting) so after 3 weeks I get my own van back. Other than that I'm on call today so should be sat on my arse at home getting full pay :)
