    You're not finished yet Tel, you now have the task of sitting in the boozer regaling your stories to the youth, i bet you have some corkers.

    best part of that job, apart from customer being a star and paying up fast , is that he has theakstons old peculier on draft. can't wait for the next job, even if it puts me in my grave. at least i'll die happy.

    The thing is Tel, after a really knackering job like that you really do feel totally fed up, and with this weather loft spaces are evil places to be in ! I expect you'll bounce back again as you're a proper old school tradesman and could miss it. You should also have time to relax and enjoy life but you could maybe take on the odd nice little job, good for beer money. :) Most importantly please stay on here, you're very entertaining !

    Loft work would do anyone in in this heat. That said, you have got to be due a rest. If you can't quite kick the habit, at least just pick and choose the cushy jobs.

    I like a day nipping around doing little jobs, nice to have the time now and then to take your time and actually enjoy the work.

    I'd be giving into to pure knackerdness going in and out five lofts in this weather ducking and diving in lofts its enough to make a grown man bite his own head off rather than face that!

    I fell victim to that stuff about 25 years ago in a small pub in the Lake District. It wasn't even draft, they literally dunked your pint glass in the barrel to fill it. I think I had 8 or 9 glasses and it was all over, I woke up at 8am the next day face down in the middle of a car park covered in snow and with a case of amnesia.
