I’ve got a story that my wife likes to tell everyone when ever the topic of DIY comes up in any conversation, so I may as well start telling it myself!
I was all set to sort out putting a shelving up onto the kitchen wall, but first did a quick test to see if there was an wires were I was about to drill. I’ll be honest, I’m not the best at DIY, so I couldn’t really tell if there was any wires or not! That lead to me thinking, ‘better safe than sorry’, and decided to turn the power off at the mains. ‘Brilliant’ I thought, until I got back to the drill, carefully lined everything up to start before realising that my electric drill wouldn’t be much use with all the mains power turned off!
