Grab your tools for some D.I.Y.....

Hi there,thanks for dropping in.'s NOT about what you think....your mind is working overtime theses sexy lot!

A couple of days ago,i both read in the paper & heard on a radio chat show,that there are more women doing than ever before.

Yes,55% of women in the home,now choose to do chores & initiate DIY chores around the house.Thats an increase of about 11% over the last 5/6 years.

Now that does'nt surprise me....but,what DOES surprise me,is that there is an American company called Tomboy Tools,that hold "House Parties" around the states,similar to "tuberware",or
"lingerie" parties,& they show women various tools
& how to use them for DIY purposes.

(I suppose they could have two parties running at the same time,one DIY,& the other a tuberware party.That way they can buy "Tools" for all occasion'

They are opening their services here in Ireland & in the UK,in late March or so,that is how i heard about it.

So how many of you out there do DIY?

Ladies,are you part of the 55% of women doing there own DIY,& why do you like it so much.

Guys,What do you think of this?Is it a case that we as men are becoming lazy,& just let the ladies get on with it?

OR is it as the presenter on the radio suggests...

That the women of the world today are just becoming increasingly more independant,in NOT wanting men to do the job,that they feel they can do equally as much.(His words NOT mine)

I'd be interested in your replies on this one!

By the way...I am in NO way being sexist with this,I'm just asking if what the media suggest is true.How do you feel about it,thats all?

I can run most power tools and I can weld (MIG and ARC weld), I can drive a tractor and a motorcycle..I believe that if you can read you can learn to do anything..

I can handle most any DIY job, and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment. But I sure do enjoy the view when I get a man to it!
