  • "Manly" things you'd never done.'Til recently.
  • Used a 16mm drill bit in anger!

    In fact used it a few times this weekend, once for the outside tap and then put down the 2nd ground anchour in the garage. Never enough security!

    Owed a vice

    And I now have two !!

    Moved into a new house… the previous old boy had popped his cloggs and family left me his work bench with both a proper work top vice and a neat little under the work top number too….

    Without doubt the best things about the new house and will help me in changing every single visible (and probably many non visible) surfaces.

    Loads of work to do … so my manly count is defo on the rise… Alarm fitting this weekend, that had me up a ladder higher than was comfortable and this week sees me pulling a couple of shed down (done that before) but fence panels will need replacing that’s a new one for me as is the building of a new shed (if only a simple shop bought panel one)

    Oh and I taught my little 6 year old girl how to dive to the bottom of the deep end at the local pool

    I recently received a Freecycled bench vice. Thought it would eventually come in useful but I have used it loads already – don’t know how I coped without it.

    well, all of this testosterone will be making the ladies of STW swoon.
    Reading your claims, I must confess to being a complete girls blouse. Only MrsMC has gone through a ceiling. Our Christmas present to each other last year was getting it fixed.

    On her way to hitting the roof? One bike to many?

    Became a God father for my partners nephew, As his only male role model i then taught him to ride his bike and how to fix a puncture.

    All pretty simple but he only speaks hungarian and I only speak (poor) english.

    At Uni I took a 3 year course in Ballroom Dancing, not as part of my degree, but just because I like dressing up 😉

    Following some good advice on here! Nice to know you got it sorted.

    Joshvegas – either we have met or my latest claim to manliness will be that I have an internet stalker?

    On Sunday I held a rocket propelled grenade launcher (RPG) for the first time. I waved it in the air, just like they do on the tele, but to be honest it didn’t feel that manly. I’m obviously not cut out for religious Jihad………….

    I recently shot a LAW 66 rocket launcher. I missed unfortunately.

    Actually, it’s not a new thing.

    Removed a set of external double doors and frame and replaced them with new ones. Took most of a day and it was a nervous time as I’d done the measurements.

    Fitted a turbocharger. Though I lose points for boringly fitting one the same as the old one, rather than one twice as big.

    Just completed walking along a 140 foot, 6 feet high block wall fence while trimming pyracantha bushes with a gas hedge trimmer—during which time mrs busydog was busily going through our files checking to make sure my life insurance policy was paid up.
