I know what you mean about the arguments, you ask what you think is something simple to do & all hell breaks out ! there should be a seperate section in the diy books on using the wife as a labourer.

you will have saved yourself an absolute fortune then over the years. We have a guy here today who has hung 5 rolls of paper and also put on new skirting for us - total cost for 6hours work £180 - but no fall outs!
