“Did window cleaning with Nig – £1-25. Started a painting”
Yes really, I did indeed do window cleaning around Fair Oak.
It was doubtless based on a bad idea I had one afternoon which Nig thought was a good idea. Damn him. My first entrepreneurial enterprise therefore involved a bucket, a sponge, some Fairy Liquid and several gallons of water. We went door-to-door offering our services and it looks like we earned £2.50 between us which we split equally. Not too shabby I suppose and I’ll guess we didn’t do it too long, just enough until boredom – or soaking wet clothes – kicked in.
I wonder if our decision to try our hand at this manual labour was based upon this smutty x-rated movie that was kicking about in the cinemas at the time?…
The only difference being that we never owned a ladder.
We only did ground floor windows.
Worst window cleaners ever.
