I so very hate hardware shops because almost every weekend I have to tag along.Â One son is very much into hardwares, bearings, lathe, lubricants, spirit and stuffs like that.Â My old man is a perpetual hardwares shopping addict. Â Â Two other kids just love hardware shops for the thrills they provide.Â From egg beaters to squishy rubber balls, the shop has it all. So while the father choose the correct drill bits, ballast and stuffs, they will create havoc in the shop trying out every gadgets including the machete. (ok, I exaggerate)
Just yesterday, my old man again left me in the car while he made a run to the hardware shop. He jokingly told me that he is going to ask the hardware shop to sell costume jewelleries such as earrings and hair clips.Â That way, I will tag along with him. Otherwise, I prefer to sit in the car on this little lane, taking photos of trishaw riders.Â I don’t want to stand in the shop, looking utterly bored whilst plumbers, electricians, masons, coffin makers (just joking) barge around looking for screws.
Two days ago, the old man and my three sons also went to the hardware shop.Â They left me at the hospital to visit a choir member while they shop.Â Both of us had talked about how we converted to Catholics, our children, giving birth, bad insurance companies,Â her operation and almost every topic and yet, the bunch of men in my family were still shopping for hardwares.Â They return with only one bottle of spirit.Â (to clean grease la, not that dirty spirit la)Â This proves how men, real men, I mean are so into fiddling around the house with DIY jobs.
Today, my old man told me he is going to drop by Carrefour (which is on the mainland) on his way back from work.Â He is going to buy a Black & Decker gadget that costs ONLY RM199 ONLY.Â *roll eyes*Â I know in his cabinet there are two Black & Decker in there.Â So, again this proves men loves DIY-jobs as much as B-jobs.Â LOL.
Therefore, I suggested to Mr. Handy to start a blog on DIY . He is a regular blogger. (you go find out yourself who is Mr. Handy).Â I have a question for Mr. Handy.Â I just dealt with blocked sink this morning.Â My dear hubby is away. I don’t want to get my hands dirty.Â Is there anything that I can use to clear a block drainpipe? Without spoiling my nail polish or dirty my hands?
