Tonight I am going to a ladies' night at our local Bunnings hardware shop. They will be showing us how to change a washer, fix holes in plaster walls and fix toilet cisterns, among other things. And there will be food and sample bags to take home.
I think I am doing this in reaction to the book I have been reading about what women "should" be doing in their homes (in which fixing toilets and holes in the plaster walls are not mentioned). Maybe it is a bit of an ungodly reaction. But I think it will be interesting anyway.
