The Right Tool for the Job...........................


So, Bloggeroos - Here we are again with some more hints and tips for the single ladies.

If you don't have a man in your life right now, I've already dealt with keeping your car on the road in a previous blog entry.

So today, I am going to cover D.I.Y. and the assortment of tools you will find useful.

If money's no object - you could always find yourself a Handy Man, but as you may remember from previous posts (link below), that's not always a good idea.

Better yet, pop down to Wilko's and for £15 you can buy your very own set of tools.




**********

If you're on a tight budget, like me - here's a quick rundown on what tools I use................


SCREWDRIVERS

I've never understood why anyone would need different screwdrivers...........



Flat head?....................or.........................





Phillips? No! No! No!......................


You only need this one..............................




Known 'in the Trade' as a Birmingham Screwdriver!



************

SAWS........................


Handsaw?.............or.........................




Coping Saw? No! No! No!.................

I only use one of these.............................




My trusty Bread Knife!

They showed it cutting wood on the telly advert I bought it from, so why not?

************

PLIERS

You will need a pair of these..........................




Of course, I didn't need to buy any pliers.

You may remember that I worked as a Dental Assistant, so I already have my own supply!





***********

I received a letter the other day from a newly single lady. She asked me..............

"What is the ONE tool I should buy that will be the most useful?"

That's easy!...................

It's this one..........................

Thankyou for this. Hubby went mad when he saw me poking in the toaster with a knife. He is an electrician! Wait til he finds out I use a can of hairspray as a hammer!

Ha ha at least you know it's called a phillips! This is much more than some of my friends! I'm an engineer so get to be Handyman for them all! I usually ask them to pass 'the crossy screwdriver!'
