I have found it so hard in recent weeks to find the energy to blog. The main reason for this is that work has been extremely mental, not that I'm complaining as I absolutely love being busy! The main problem is the fact that I have done two late shift weeks in a row so … Continue reading Sooooooo tired
As Kev and I always seem to be working, I believe it's very important that we take time out together, so on a rare Saturday that we were both off work at the same time, we decided to take a day trip. There were plenty of discussion around where to go and it was decided … Continue reading Taking time out
As it's Sunday, Kev and I were partaking in our hobby, well I say hobby, we were doing quotes but it's the only hobby we have time for! We had 1 full house and 2 kitchens to price up across the South Wales Valleys and as usual I was in charge of taking the notes … Continue reading Troubles with Technology
We recently did a quote where the colour Mocha was requested as they wanted a darker colour on their walls than they currently had. The customer stated that they wanted Mocha, which doesn't sound that complicated. You just go to the paint shop and buy Mocha coloured paint. Or so you would think.

He has set up the pasting table and has started working away at getting them sorted for … Continue reading Danger on the stairs – part 2
Yup folks, this is how my stairs currently look! Kev warned me that this might happen. He has run over on a job and has brought his work home with him. Not like an office worker, where they just bring a laptop, I have someone else's kitchen doors and drawers at the bottom of my … Continue reading Danger on the stairs
This is one part of my role that I do enjoy. It gives me the opportunity to meet customers. I get to meet a variety of different people when going on these quotes, from people that have a clear idea of what they would like done to people that look for his expertise as they are not quite sure where to start, they know they want something done but what is the question.
Well, how do I begin? I met Kevin through a well known dating website and we have now been together for 9 months. He told me that he was a self employed painter and decorator (he runs a business called TDS Decorating) and like any normal woman, I thought this would come in useful as … Continue reading How it all began …..
