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. :)

It's now 14.00 and no permit. Been told we 'might' get one by 16.00. Luckily we are here for 3 days and our job can be done in one day.
 
POLLING DAY! Anyone already been?
 
Well, not the best start to the day. I'm at the Kings Lynn Premier. It's currently having some refurbishment work done. Hasn't been a problem until 6.15 this morning when the workmen started work on the room above mine. I don't have to be in until late ish morning so was hoping for a lie in. Oh well......
 
Breakfast? Pah! Went in for my breakfast. Didnt want cooked so I ordered a bowl of porridge as soon as I got in and got myself a bowl of fruit. I ate the fruit and waited for the porridge. I kept waiting. After 15 mins I gave up and walked out. I wouldn't mind if the place was full but there was just me and 1 other.
Saw a different gut at the Premier reception when I got back. He went through the 'goodnight guarantee' and told me how to claim. Not really much use to me as the company pays.
 
We came home yesterday after our few days away "up north"... and i wanted to share something with you....

We stopped for a comfort break at House Of Bruar... which is a retail/ resteraunt place off the A9... Full of Tartan, Tweed and "Two quid for a scotch pie!.... Whit!"

Anyway... as i stood, um, having my comfort break, i could say.... the gentleman next to me.. who looked definately older than me... was busy texting, one handed, and occasionaly brought his other hand up to swipe the screen....


Almost put me off my flow.


So if you think its only youngsters glued to their screens..... think again!

I'd have got my own breakfast, charged it to the company and told them how to claim from the hotel.
 
Today I get to collect my new van. Brand new Transit. Most of the day will be spent getting everything out of my old van and working out where to put it all in the new one. I already know the racking is totally wrong for what I carry but there's nothing I can do about that. Plus the new van is trackered and limited to 73mph :-(
 
Ooooooh That is an exciting day!! Are you going to share some photos when you get it later?

Morning all.

Get the new system sorted out and adjust in a few months mate it's always well worth building a bit of boxing in or whatever to make life easier down the road.

Probably teaching you suck eggs there I've only had to do it twice in my life lol usually whole job (business) change so car to van, van to pick up, pickup to car. Basically filled a garage or shed every time lol
 
Today I terminated the ends of 2 cables that I have installed over the last 3 days.
I ache and feel like a zombie.

100m of 4 core swa 150mm split into a 40m and a 60m run through 2 walls with 3 x 90 degree bends along the run on new cable tray.

this morning was the first day that i got back to site and didn't sigh, look at the cable and think arggh, its still there!!!
