…..well, his back view anyway. Andy is doing a couple of little jobs for us - replacing the garage window, which was not in a good state, and also the door surround at the back of the garage. When I saw the words on the back of his sweatshirt, I remarked that I was glad he was good with wood, to which he responded, “But I’m useless with plastic”, which was not what I wanted to hear, given that he was replacing the wooden surround of the window with plastic! However, he has done a great job and is now, hopefully, being “good with wood” as he repairs the door surround.
We heard of Andy through Trevor, a friend of ours from Jack’s, who recommended him, and after he put up a new bannister rail for us at a very good price, we decided to go back to him. “Word of mouth” is definitely the best advertisement for any workman and we are happy to have found such a good worker in Andy, because "a good workman is worth his weight in gold."
Next week the drive is being relaid, so I have decided not to do too much cleaning at the front and side of the house, as it will be a mess again once that work is started. However, I shall be very grateful when all the work is done and I can take it easy.
