    20160219_184320.jpg Well ain't I chuffed :) Having a man around to explain to me how to do something then stand back and just supervise is wonderful. Today's job was to change the broken habitation door handle. Here's some photos of my work.

    Well done. The reason most of us men are keeping quiet is we have been taught over the last 20+ years that you women wanted equality.
    We would never congratulate a man for learning a diy trick like this, so bearing in mind the equality thingy we thought it best to keep our gobs shut :whistle::p:LOL:

    Also no matter what we say we will be wrong ;)

    Sandra, let me know when you have successfully fit extra solar panels and I'll pop my van around for you to do mine!!!

    Well done, it is a bit daunting attempting these things on your pride and joy. I had to change a 12 vt socket on mine after being a bit heavy handed!! Really easy.

    I'm disappointed in you ... I thought you meant the man who had come to explain had carried on and fitted it for you whilst YOU supervised! That would have been much better ... after all knowing how to do something is one thing, but managing to get someone else to do it for you is better!!!! :D Dog and bark come to mind ... :LOL:

    Mind you, I do all our stuff ... I like to have it done right!!! (y)
