Ebb and flow of work

Recommended Posts

September started with the phone constantly ringing with work,

October phone kept ringing with clients cancelling or postponing work.

Literally the entire month empty except for the odd day.

F***ing brexit.

November starts phone keeps going with more work.

Just does my nut occasionally.

How's everyone else?

Busy?

I'm always the same either feast or famine, last week there wasn't enough hours in the day, this week I've got two long days unless the phone rings.

Seems this year every time I have about caught up with things and think im going to get a breather, a whole bunch of work all comes out of nowhere, and all on the same day!

I spoke too soon, a fella I do some work for just rang, two good young lads that work for him have asked for more money, he's turned them down, they've just jacked, (going to start up together),Seems there will be a good run of work for the time being.

My game has always been like that, it's a pain in the arse because you can never plan ahead too far.

Such is the fickle nature of tree work, then add the vagaries of customers, employees, and the weather, and you soon get used to rolling along week to week, with at least one contingency plan up your rolled up sleeve.
