Although I was happy to do a DIY job on my younger son's education (it worked for us...) and somehow managed to build this site from a standing start, I'm loath, or too lazy, to turn my hand to tasks of a more practical nature.
Take our garden. We've wanted a patio for years and actually got as far as marking out where it would go with kebab skewers and string (no expense spared). But that was as far as it went. We actually sat in our string-and-skewer circle with a glass of wine, but wine wasn't going to get a patio built. We also decided we wanted a shed and dug about six inches into the ground where the base would go. Similar story. So we phoned a lovely garden landscaping company who have put up fencing for us in the past. They turned up and turned our garden around, barely breaking a sweat. Sometimes, I feel, you just need an expert.
I've realised that while I'm happy to do certain things and am not averse to learning new skills, there are some tasks I just don't feel able to tackle. How about you? What kind of DIY do you do?
