When you're physically disabled the simplest of DIY jobs can be a nightmare and in the end I have to pay over the odds just to get someone in to help out.
Unlucky for me not many of my relatives that live locally have 'practical skills'.I have the know how but it's no longer safe for me to do them. You don't need to be talented to paint walls but again I can't paint about shoulder height and in the end have to pay a decorator to come in.
I had a new fireplace installed yesterday but my home is now chaos! Dust everywhere, carpet half rolled up, furniture and TV stored in the dining area - great!
The skirting board needs repairing, the carpet needs repairing, the woodwork and walls need cleaning down and painting. Furniture cushions etc are stored in different rooms - chaos.
Is there some charitable organisation that you know about that could perhaps lend a hand as it's an expensive business being disabled!
