Hi, I admire you for trying to be Superwpman, but am glad you know you need help and are happy to ask.

There is a system in our area…The Handyman Service. It is operated by the council and is for elderly, and disabled.

They do charge, but are not expensive.

why not ring the main switchboard and ask?
