Hey guys and girls!
Making a deliberate effort today to update the blog.
Been a while and I’m trying to make it a habit.
So, unfortunately today hasn’t gone so well. It seems I’m having one of ‘those days’.
Here’s what went down. I got up, had some breakfast and headed for work. So far so good, right?
Well, it went downhill, fast.
Thanks to roadworks I ended up sat in traffic for about an hour which meant I arrived late on site.
Then came the icing on the cake. The building supplies we were hoping to get today didn’t turn up. And it’s not like they came in late, they didn’t come at all. Hate it when that happens (in the building industry it happens quite often I’m afraid).
I’ve got no problem naming and shaming them. Thanks a lot Screwix they’re re terrible when it comes to doing what they say….next day delivery my a*$e!
What that bascically meant was I spent the whole day sitting on my hands waiting for supplies that never showed. That’s a whole, entire day wasted.
People blame builders for being lazy… Well today we sat doing absolutely nothing all day, unable to work even if we wanted to!
Cue the guys from roller shutter repair london winding us up. “Do you actually use those tools you bring?” Haha very funny guys. (Friendly banter – they’re good guys really).
You can check out their facebook page here – worked with them plenty of times and they’re the best in the business.
But anyway, I don’t know about you, but I loathe wasting time that could be spent doing something productive. Me being a builder is a direct result of my keenness for working with my hands, and my dislike of idle time. Today, I got to do none of that. The worst part is that we’re now likely to be late on the project deadline.
Luckily, the band has a show scheduled for tonight, so I’ll be able to take out all of my frustrations on the stage. Check out our calendar if you’re interested in attending, it’ll be a great show and I’d love to see you there.
Hope your day has gone better than mine!
