Mrs A was recommended to me by a friend. On the phone she asked me to give her a quote for conservatory roof blinds. When I arrived at the house I found that Mrs A was a lovely elderly lady and that the “conservatory” was actually a lean-to.
Apart from the fact that the price of roof blinds (£990) would be way over budget, I was not at all sure that the make-shift roof was strong enough to support them!
The problem was Mrs A’s Albino cats. Apparently the vet had warned her that direct sunlight could cause cancer and all sorts of other problems. My problem was how to sort this on a shoestring.
Two ivory king-size sheets and a staple gun later and the problem was resolved for the princely sum of £13.98p.
