We are rushed off our feet at the moment
working up to 6 days a week including some Saturdays , BUT NEVER ON A SUNDAY
THAT IS THE DAY I DO NOTHING .
I am going to cut back down to a normal 5 days a week only and no answering of phones out of work hours , and not on at all on a Sunday please .
we are now booked out until June .
We get a lot of scam callers and most have withheld their number , now I know some people have a blocker on their number which I understand maybe due to a security reason ,
but due to the high volume of scam callers
I am now not going to answer Withheld number calls .
if you wish to make a phone call to us please unblock your withheld number so I know it is not a scam .
We get every type of scammer from Web site improvers to electric and Gas and BT scammers .
In fact I get around 12 BT scam callers and emails a week .
To avoid the headache of all this I have to draw the line somewhere and now is the time to do this .
so unfortunately if I cannot see a number on my phone I will not answer .
my opening hours are 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday
PLEASE TAKE NOTE I may be working hands on a table , unloading re-clothing re-rubber gluing pool cloth , and may not be able to answer the phone .
the best way top contact me is through my email
Remember the good fitters in our billiards and snooker industry are always busy
More than often I am hands on working in someone’s house and it would be rude of me to break off and start answering calls , when I should be cracking on and getting the work completed .
it is not surprising to find a lot of missed calls on my phone when I get back into my van , some I can answer as they have left a contact message or text .
Not many good fitters are about these days , and this means we may not be able to answer all calls in a day .
I tend to phone back if you have left a text or message , if I have not phoned back it may be because your message ended or your voice is unrecognizable and muffled , or did not register on my phone .
I have had to cancel and looking to re-arrange a few job’s if my bad back and sciatica does not ease up .
it is a long suffering recurring injury and gets worse the more lifting of tables and slate I do .
which at the moment is a lot .
It is the Piriformis muscle expanding and crushing or trapping the nerves , I do not have a herniated or bulging disc .
this causes acute lower back pain and in the groin area , plus spreading down the leg to lower calf and ankle pain
This illustration above shows the acute pain area I have at the moment
last night I did not get any sleep at all , and today I have spent 2 hours in the hot tub with the warm jets relieving the pain
I bought this hot tub 2 years ago to treat my aches and pains of fitting snooker and pool tables as I get older .
and it is the only thing that works for me at the moment , these creams you put on are useless and so are some of the pain killers .
not only is the pain in the main Sciatic nerve but there are smaller nerves spreading out like an hand to the front of my groin , these are being irritated too
The causes extreme incruciating pain
All these smaller branches of nerves are also affected not just the main thick nerve that runs into the leg
any one who suffers with this will know just what I having to put up with these last few days .
I have had epidural injection three , two weeks apart to try and fix this some time ago , it was a quick fix and did not really do much in actually curing Sciatica .
I have tried to carry on working fitting tables but even sat driving I am in pain .
and I had a 6 hours of driving yesterday 3 hours there and 3 hours back with 4 hours fitting , when I went to fit a 9ft table near Cromer in Purple .
it was after this long day that my back got really bad pain last night .
they say that sitting is not good for Sciatica , but 6 hours driving standing up is impossible .
so please stick with me if you have a table booked in for work . if you are affected I will make contact to give the reason I cannot do the work .
I do not like letting anyone down , and will get to you to do the work , all I am asking is a bit of leeway to fit you back in to reschedule the work at a later date
I am sure some of you with just re-cloth work could wait a bit longer as you can still play on the old cloth for a week or two until I reschedule you back in , it is the actual fitting and moving of tables I will have to really try and reschedule with you or maybe have to pass on work to a couple of fitters that I know .if you cannot wait a little longer .
If you do not hear from me your work is not affected , but it may be a day before that I phone you .
as Sciatica is one of those injury’s that you just do not know how long it will last .
Easter is here and this gives me at least 4 days to rest it up , plus do a few stretching exercise that is suppose to alleviate the Piriformis muscle trapping the nerves .
so hopefully I will be OK for Tuesday 6th April and that job is a full size table and a small pool table fit too in the same House , lifting 5 heavy slates onto frame from a Garage store and also 2 hours drive there and 2 hours drive back .
I will keep all those affected in the loop ,
and thanks to all that understand what I am going through at the moment , I would not wish Sciatic pain onto anyone .
