Broken stuff

After a glass of wine or two I started thinking about the things I would REALLY want for Xmas, if there was such a wish list for a single parent whose child can't shop. What about all the the things that need fixing around the house, that would start the New Year off really well if there was no stress as to how to clean up the mess of 2008.

I'll show you mine if you show me yours...should I tag this one? Could be fun, with the challenge to be rid of the mess by next year. Let me start with mine

after a few lemonades one night I was out, I came home and fell over a little bit in my teeny tiny toilet, and the lid broke off. The seat has stayed on for a few months until today......Bunnings visit tomorrow after work, for sure.
This BBQ was originally from my grandfather bought, used it a few times, then sent to my sister from Sydney to Melbourne when he passed away. They kept it for a bit, didn't want it, sent it to me. I am now going to get a kit to convert from natural gas to gas bottle, what a hassle, but a new BBQ and a challenge for me (even Dad didn't want to help!).

My ole rental house is pretty old, but getting repairs is a hassle as it means a landlord visit! SO I tried to nail some wood where the white box is, for the back bit to crumble and I need a landlord visit....Damn! Has to be done or Murray is loose.

Lastly my pile of tip stuff, I really hope someone else has as many reno jobs for 2009 as me, I will definatley take pics as fixed and keep you updated. I have done many things in my life, have helped birthed lots of babies, can clean up my house!
