He worked hard at an apprenticeship, attended college regularly studied and worked hard.
It wasn't easy for him but he was committed to owning his own business and never gave up.
He has had his own business for some time now, he is successful and is well thought of and praised for his commitment to his work. He is a perfectionist.
His business is kitchen/bathroom/bedroom/office supply and fitting. Many of his orders come from word of mouth from 'very' satisfied customers. He is based in Shifnal, Shropshire.
Needless to say I am bursting with pride.
Here are some pictures of the inside of his showrooms.
You can see some of his 'thank you' cards here, he doesn't have them all on show, he is a very modest man.
That's a very strange looking woman with that camera !! must tell son to stop allowing the riff-raff in off the street !
I occasionally go over and 'mind the shop' for him while he's out measuring up and giving quotes, this is where I sit.
I love this little sign he has on show, you can see it on the worktop in the picture above.
That's my Honda there, and the pub opposite that tempts me !
I know the pics are a bit 'grainy', the batteries packed up shortly after taking these pics, and didn't have time to take them all again.
So there's my unashamed 'gloating with pride' post for today.
