    Ooh I think a 'DIY' section would be great.

    I had some good advice re 'hanging wallpaper' a while ago on here...

    Also had a 10 off a 35 spend on 'power tools' in my 'tesco' mailing! Prob due to me buying a value cordless screwdriver and sander lol Maybe Mr T thinks I should be doing some DIY too!

    Well whilst we are talking DIY and Topps Tiles is hot news, one of my best ever buys was an electric tile cutter, the table saw type one with a wheel that spins.

    The biggest problem when tiling is cutting the tiles, with a little snapper you can waste so many and can only do straight cuts. With the electric tile cutter you can nibble out corners or bits for pipes etc. It was about 40 but it makes a pain of a job a breeze. I'm sure some of you budding DIY ladies would love this tool, so get one and do it yourself!
    Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who actually do.

    I love the idea of a DIY area.

    I had my kitchen fitted a while ago but unfortunately the kitchen fitter was not what he said so I have redone it myself()had to take all the cupboards down). Doesn't look as good as if a professional did it but I am pleased with what I have done and certainly not worried about putting some shelves up etc now.
    People say Plz as it is shorter than saying please, so I feel justified in saying no as it is shorter than yes.
