£10 an hour. I’d work a nine-hour day, with an hour break. I’d be more than happy to do that, to be honest. Some of the best times I’ve had were when I was painting. But the worst one was when we had to paint a donkey stable. The donkeys escaped one day dan me and my mate Jake were both running around a field in our painter gear, trying to get these donkeys back in before the farmer got back. Maybe that’s where Knights of Cydonia came from.
