    Default Is it just me.........

    or do job types go in cycles? It seems that for a while every job will be a bathroom - then for a while no bathrooms and all conservatories - then only kitchens........
    At the moment it seems to be that every job I get is in travertine!

    All i do is bathrooms now, (well with the exception of building a new roof and looking after the kids)

    I had a run of 8x8 bumpy white for about 3 years working for estate agents rental properties, bored me whitless!
