Now this is how work should be!

 I've spent a few hours this afternoon moving big bits of furniture between Leathley (just towards Harrogate out of Pool-in-Wharfedale) and into Otley Centre, just next to the church.   ...lovely sunny day, scenery & customer!
 I do consider myself VERY lucky on days like these....
 ahhh the beauty of the Wharfe Valley.
We're lucky, very lucky to live just over the brow of the horizon you can see here which is called Otley Chevin.
 The customer today was relatively unrushed, polite, personable and friendly.  ....a great job on a lovely day for www.vanandaman.co.uk   it's when things like this happen that you sort of think that maybe things aren't so bad after all!!!

Between all of my jobs with the van this week, I've been working really hard and frantic on getting www.realtradesmen.co.uk operational and presentable.  Now, give me a choice between sitting in front of a computer all day OR driving around on a day like today.  Hmmmmm...!!
