Mr Fixit

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.
