Handy man, Jack-of-all-trades, can do it all. As long as it doesn't require a shed. Anything from rehanging a front gate to vacuuming a 4 storey block of flats (actually urghhh). I love fixing and helping. I think that may be a problem. I am sure there are plenty of people who will happily tell me so.
Fixing: I get much joy from 'fixing'. These days I endeavour to ensure the problem wants fixing. I convince myself I don't do anything unless specifically asked (even if I first offered). I am surprised how negatively the Covid isolation is affecting me. I can no longer fill my day wandering aimlessly and feel I have done something. I have been very fortunate to have had several fixit and rescue projects come up. Refurbishing my mum's old jewelry box, building a hot wire, flat bed, foam cutter for my son, repairing some fixtures for a friend.
Funnily enough, the one person I haven't been able to assist and fix stuff for is ME!! I am hopeful that the creation of this site is an indicator that I am ready to address that problem once again. I have a number of projects I want to do for myself. Build a "cabinet/box" to house my piano keyboard. Organise a filing shelf/bookcase to hold my books and papers. That one will be tricky as space is not at a premium in my flat, it is non-existent. The other big job dragging me down at the moment is the desperate need to declutter and get the non essentials back into my storage unit.
On a more positive note, I am very pleased with what I have accomplished in my 15 months here. Captn Gunna has created a small but sufficient workspace. I have acquired a small set of specialised tools to further my modelling aims. Yes, that is more applicable to my 'Modelling' stream but the tools still come under Mr. Fixit.
