    Typical screws etc left over from a job, so nout new there then as we can all relate to no doubt :p

    I usually have a mini writing pad & pencil, work phone, screws/nails, torch & tape measure

    I know that feeling all too well lmao ;)

    Not good when the money falls to the floor though as gravity will win every-time ;)

    I don't keep things in my pockets cos usually laying on one side or the other wraming ( northern word for) struggling,stretching,scampering about under baths,under floors, in atics and awkward corners, anything in your pockets digs into your skin or gets broken, the number of times i go out to the van for stuff and have forgotten to pick up the keys out of my jacket pocket is unbelievable, but i still never keep them in my pockets, :eek:
     
  16. i know what you mean tom lots of things get removed and chucked across the room after sticking me when im scralling (cornish word for crawling climbing scampering) bout all over the place
