How to build a site manager out of a fussy middle aged woman and a Pot Noodle – husbands and subcontractors take note.

  1. Make sure she has knee pads (with Velcro fasteners)  How about these?
  2. Make sure she has steel toecap boots
  3. Keep an emergency Pot Noodle in the site office
  4. Give her a kettle, teabags, some milk and a mouse-proof container
  5. Never attempt to put fish tins on her rubble pile
  6. Buy her draught-proof clothing
  7. Buy her waterproof clothing
  8. Sing to her
  9. Tell her some jokes when she looks upset –  You could have this book handy.
  10. Don’t tell her jokes when she looks a bit miffed
  11. Don’t ignore the red and white barrier tape around her trees
  12. Don’t tell porkies
  13. Admire her choice of bucket colour – this Jewson one looks nice.
  14. Remark how tidy her site office shed looks
  15. Don’t let on she has hat hair
