Have You Had a DIY Accident in Lockdown?

Ask a Question

Was out walking my dog today and I see many people doing DIY projects involving ladders and electrical equipment. Some of these people are the older generation and I do worry for their safety. Have you had any DIY disasters since lockdown?

I dug into my foot when gardening and it's left a scar that looks like a Nike logo!

eyeballkerry to be honest I did bit of an 'ow' at the time and it was only when I came in the OH said what's that blood on your trainer. I don't do blood and almost passed out when they took my trainer off 😱

I was just like 'stick a plaster on it, it will be fine' whilst blood was dripping everywhere.

I was trying to fix our dishwasher and in pulling it out broke off one of it's legs πŸ™ˆ

It's now propped up with some random bits and bobs I found around the house!

I pulled our cooker out to replace the element as I didn't want someone coming in the house during lockdown. I slid it out carefully and got it onto the floor flat, ready to take the back off. I felt all proud of myself and at that moment, the door fell open onto my bare foot. Badly bruised toe... πŸ™„

The only accident I had was telling the wife I would do some DIY 🀣🀣

Yes and my nose is now bumpy, sore and still has a scar at the moment but there was no way I was going to a hospital! 🐞
