Good Morning Folks

I am absolutely hopeless at household DIY !! Do you remember Frank Spencer in the comedy series Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em? If so, then I can guarantee you that my DIY skills are not much better than his. I try to mend one thing and end up breaking half a dozen other things !

Anyway, I am just curious to know if anybody else has any similar experiences in performing general DIY tasks around the home? Or am I the worst DIYer in the World !!

Please share your experiences of the most common DIY jobs that you have to perform, the most awkward or difficult hand tools that you have used, the tools that you use the most in order to perform general DIY maintenance.

Any comments greatly appreciated.

    This is pretty random (for an accountancy forum) :)

    I can manage laminate flooring but not so good at carpeting. I am ok at doing tiling but hopeless at roller painting

    I am ok at painting, tiling and grouting (not huge areas though!).
    I am terrifying with a drill in hand. :s

    Not allowed to do anything apart from fitting the bathroom carpet which I consider to be something of a punishment due to the shape and time it takes.
    Not actually sure why she trusts me with a Stanley knife?
