This is a bit off the preservation topic, though it still involves my work. I had a long and busy day surveying today, around Leeds mainly, looking at rising damp, wet rot and wall tie corrosion. The traffic was awful.
The following is copy of a letter that came in the post whilst I was out of the office; the girls put it on my PC keyboard so it was the first thing i picked up.
It really made my day and I’m so grateful that the client put pen to paper for me. It’s quite easy to become expert in damp and such, but motivating staff, training them, balancing the books, keeping customers and suppliers happy, finding new clients and paying the taxes on top can be a bit of a burden sometimes.
Knowing you are appreciated and that your team are just as enthusiastic as you makes everything worthwhile.
