D.I.Y.

When I was 12, I really botched the wooden pencil box I had to make at school. The BBQ fork and the plastic photo holder weren't much better. When I used to hammer picture hooks into our brick walls, I would remove chunks of the wall in the process. What I am trying to say here is ... I'm not really that 'handy'.

However, after doing some construction work in Mexico this summer, and helping to build a 16x20 foot house end-to-end, I am gaining some confidence, know-how and perhaps even some skills. So, Jess and I decided to install a new toilet ourselves, and it works, and it doesn't leak.


Small victories!

Hey guys!
So you wrote you are going to write 'more on the course later' and i am really looking forward to hearing about it. Just in case you thought we weren't paying attention and you could forget about that....

I installed a toilet a couple of years ago... I feel really proud of myself every time I flush it!
