Just found the email with my acceptance to the forums and the log in details. I have been lurking on the site for a while now and I am in admiration of the wonderful pieces of furniture and kitchens I have seen displayed.
I am a painter and decorator in the West Sussex area. I am also a full time Fire fighter (await derision and abuse…). Long story short did an “apprenticeship” with a local deccie after leaving school, didn’t attend college or gain any qualifications.
Managed to get into the service so had some time out of the trade but decided through financial requirements and the fact that I enjoy it, to return to the brush.
I love both my jobs, and give both 110%.
Hopefully as with life I will continue to learn, develop and better myself in all areas.
