No more ikea now I'm a minted NHS consultant.
Glad to see I'm in good company with being a bit shit at it all. I tiled my en suite. Total disster. It's so shit I haven;t got the nuts to get someone round to fix it because I'm so fucking embarrassed by it. I'm going to rip the whole thing out before anyone with any form of tradey skills sets eyes on it.
My ex once thought she'd do me a favour by painting the bathroom whilst I was at work. Bright lime green. It was like that scene from only fools when he nicks the flourescent paint. Hideous. took 4 coats of white to hide the stuff.
Anyone who does this after an all nighter deserves medal
I do quite a lot of emergency surgery and have seen all manner of hand injuries from DIY. Some of it might seem obvious, ladders and circular saws etc, but loads of really interesting ways to injure yourself.
