Today I saw a handy man on TV showing how easy it is to repair things, he was showing women they can do things to help themselves and he made things look so simple... One thing he did was fix a dropped door without taking the door off..he explained that it was the weight of the door so all he did was unscrew one of the screws in the hinge, I don't know if it is important to be the top one or even if maybe you should do it to all of the screws but he took one screw out, he filled the hole up with wood glue then hammered 4 matches into the hole, then broke off the access ends of the matches, then you let that dry for a couple of hours, then screw a screw back in, how easy is that girls, we could all do that....

I've always done all of the small repairs around our house... fixing toilets and drippy faucets, bad cabinet doors, putting up screens, etc, etc... I read a few books when we were first married, and just too the job over. That way, when BIG job comes along, Hun knows he can rely on me to get it done, a we do projects more often. Being female shouldn't stop a person from anything!

I would love to be able to do all those things, I am going to learn how to use a drill one day, i think that is something that would make things so much easier to do these things...

DIY has lots of how-to videos on their website... you can find out how to do everything. Its very satisfying to not have to ask anyone to do ith for you!!

I used to believe that the mending works are for men, and I would go to dad to ask for help. When I was fourteen, my mother got ill and my father went to the hospital to look after her. Leaving me at home, alone. At that time, I knew that I should live a life by myself. I learned to do a lot of things, such as installing electric bulb, repairing the bike, repairing chairs, and even restoring the holloware! My father said I grown up in a night. At that time, I believe girls could do the things like boys. The only difference is that girls do the things in a smart way.

well I am totally useless with my hands, I am as clumsy as they come, I will still leave it to the men, though I do have some girlfriends that are quite handy around the house like that.

everyone has his golden figure, which is easy for him to deal with something. While it is so fantastic in others' eyes...
