Twat on a Cold Fibreglass Roof

Bit of an abortive mission this afternoon. I decided to make a start on the nasty job of cleaning Herman2’s roof. This task was not made any easier by the fact that

  • I couldnae find a decent scrubbing brush in the house
  • We didnae have any sugar soap left

So I had to embark on the soggy challenge armed only with a bucket full of hot water mixed with screen wash and a crappy scrubbing attachment off an old floor mop, which couldnae scrub the skin of a rice pudding.

That's a lot of roof!

In the end, I gave up after doing a couple of part panels as my cleaning implements weren’t up to the job of removing all the ground in dirt and lichen, without spending ages scrubbing away at each tiny bit. I may be beaten but, unbowed I shall return to this Herculean task when I am more adequately “tooled up”.

On the plus side, I did get to play with Herman2’s tail lift, as I raised it and set my step ladder on it, so I could climb up onto the roof. Unfortunately, so enthralled was I with the gadgetry, I forgot to snap my step-O-lift-O-ladder-O-tronic© in action.
