i want a tool belt!






i

am

such
a

rock star!!!

ok not really, i just amazed myself a teensy weensy little bit yesterday... but before i tell you about yesterday, please take note of the following... after and during the move there is loads of handyman stuff to do... so if you haven't noticed... i haven't got one of those hanging around anymore... you know the human equivalent of bob the builder... i really could have done with bob around during the weekend... but boohoo i didn't... so i got over it... and i did it myself...



oh yes!

*patting self on back*

i now can add to my repertoire... not only can i change a light bulb... but i can now use a freaking allan key people... ain't that impressive? i thought so... you? probably not so much.. but trust me... i am an expert with one tool only (wink wink)... so on Sunday i dissembled my bed! i am still amazed i got it right... AND got it back together... the right way nogal! then there is the kids bunk beds... yes i did those too...

and i put up blinds!

am i the only one that's getting a kick out of this????

but last night... well i was a little bit overwhelmed... so

*bright idea*

Kay sweety! get your testosterone pulsing bod over here and give your mama a hand to install the washing machine and the dishwasher...

and that's what we did...

ok tiny bit of exaggerating here...

i did what i do best...

i told him what to do...

only kidding, i don't do child labor... we did this thing together, washers and pipes and stuff... *imagine screams and tears and plumbing goodies flying all over the kitchen...*

we even applied plumbing tape! i know, how impressive is that!!! you see i took notes way back when when Batman used to do these things...

so voila!!! appliances installed...

now i just need to muster up enough courage to switch them on...

YAY Stef! I think you deserve a tool belt AND a huge award. Mom and handywoman of the year!! And I'm not just saying that because I don't know what an allan key is. haha

When you inviting me to see your new apt?? Huh? HUH? :)

You just saved yourself about R500 by doing it yourself.. You should go out and buy yourself a pair of jeans!

Miss Caught Up said...

LOL What a delightful read! Congrats! I could never weld a tool to save my life! *Pats you on the back*

Kitty Cat said...

Sisters are doing it for themselves! It feels so good to know you can do it without a man sometimes...hmm, no innuendo intended, but that too, I suppose. So if I need a handyman can I call you?
