    Well it's certainly biting now.

    Builders seem to have disappeared off the face of the earth.

    Plumbers ( especially CORGI's) are still busy but I guess the cold snap is helping.

    Everything else is well down.

    Any CORGI who is not swamped with work during this cold snap needs to ask himself why.

    I'm absolutely inundated!

    I suspect it might be tougher once the weather warms up though. :(

    it was extremely busy today on the plumbing counters, boilers flying out and lots of leaks and emergency work inundating local plumbers...I hope it lasts!

    This winter has probably been the busiest for many many years. Will it continue like this?

    Probably not.

    The recession by the way is the stupid thing the newspapers, the chap on the radio, the tv bloke and just about everyone elce will not blinkin well stop moaning about. If everyone keeps telling everyone elce how bad it all is then of course it will be bad. Why not think of something more cheerful eg. the weather (even if it is rubbish as well) or at least we're not as brainless as nutterhead - as a surgestion.
    Mind you at least this 'recesion' gives the Financial Times something to write about.

    If we don't talk about it will it just go away?

    No, but if we don't go about like scared rabbits and refuse to buy anything then it might.

    (apologies to all those who can see that I am stating the obvious)
