This week I’ve been working on my ‘Honey-do’ list and managed to cross off four items: Fitted a new front door, replaced the broken light switch in the kitchen and replaced the light fitting in Alek’s room.

This afternoon saw me working on the fourth project, which involved performing major reconstructive surgery on the couch which was becoming rather saggy. It also involved a lot of close ‘head inside back of couch’ work, which my lack of near vision leaves me struggling, especially if the thing I want to see is at the top of my field of vision. The only way I can see things above me it to try and twist my head as far back as it will go to bring the offending item into the bottom near vision portion of my glasses.

Using leftover two by four timbers to shore things up inside the couch will hopefully hold it all together for some time. Hmmm, I wonder if a couple of two by fours would do anything for my saggies?

I thought all this Do It Yourself work was a fitting excuse to take a picture of myself and the completed workbench.
