Thing that struck me about DIY while living in London was that there was f*ck all room or space to do me hammering, sawing and store me tools.
Density of population - no man shed etc.
Noise, dust, major pain in the arse.
B&Q was good in terms of range of stuff needed - prices were very reasonable - most of my power tools are British.
But here in the great Southern Land - plenty of space to make noise, mess and fix or build things!
Saturday is not complete without a trip to the man Supermarket.
Son and mates recently completed science project building an electric motor - 6 lads out in the garage using all Dad's power tools and making a huge mess.
No fingers/limbs were lost and they all got full marks.
So I'm not too sure about the under 40s bit.
