    Extra large red wine to numb the pain maybe ?

    I was getting ready to go out for a meal and had to phone the restaurant to cancel the booking on the way to the hospital. I was on morphine for the pain, it's much more effective.

    You must really hate going out with your missus, to go to those lengths to get out of it!

    Usually a nice meal costs an arm and a leg. You all recovered Chippie?

    She was going to pay:(:(
    It's not right and it never will be but it's workable, there is a line of scar tissue which restricts how far I can spread my thumb and I can't bend the top joint but considering the mess I made of it it's not too bad.

    Clever or not, my skirtings are attached, caulked, painted, and still hanging on so I guess I got something right!

    Thanks for the tips, I applied the same approach to fitting some curtain pole brackets as well.
