Talking of disasters, replacing a compression joint isolating valve today, the pipe must have been imperial as the olive hadn't shrunk onto the pipe at all, despite my usual overtightening. Found out about 20 minutes after I put the water back on, unfortunately the mains valve was about 100 yards away as well doh!.

Lol -- oh dear Gold moon , youre in it for the long haul then eh ha! All my DIY takes ages --- that farce I posted above, was based merely on tightening a hinge on a kitchen cabinet, so you can imagine how long I am doing bigger repairs and stuff lol -- although I have to say , most of my time goes into the thinking what to do first from the list of jobs. I have a degree in procrastination .
