DIY SOS

Postby Hope » March 23rd, 2017, 11:22 am

I love this programme, they do such amazing things to help people who really need help. It really restores my faith in humanity!

Last night's programme was about a young woman who has Mast Cell problems (ie - her body thinks she's allergic to anything and everything), and also (although they didn't go into much detail about it) she has Ehles-Danlos Syndrome. They did a house for another woman earlier in the series who also had EDS, so I think they didn't say much about it in this episode to keep things different! I'm so lucky I don't have it nearly as bad as either of these two inspiring young woman.

I just wish I could find one of those tradesmen who seem to be able to make whatever is asked of them and in a couple of hours (same as in The Interior Decorating Challenge) ;) :tu:

Exactly ... where do they find these people ? Must be a very closed shop and Sarah probably knows of them as she is the trade .. ... :? :rolleyes:

Is it a genuine Anglepoise? If so, have you contacted them? They were extremely helpful both times I contacted them.

Thanks Miss Mouse
I think I've found someone to do it locally, but it's good to know
I was hoping they would stock replacement bulbs but they don't, mine is an original, I think 1950s, probably the same age as I am and when it's done I mght i try and get it balanced to take an LED

I didn't know they still made such a range of lamps, something to bear in mind :)

My mum's given me her old 1960s bakerlite radio (which I also used in my teens until I got my own). I'd love to have it turned into an MP3 player. Might have to contact that "Horse" man off Money for Nothing!
