DIY = Don’t Injure Yourself

Spring is upon us and as is tradition we get out into the garden, spring clean the house and decorate the rotting shed. What also seems to be a tradition is that all this DIY (especially gardening) leads to a lot more crisis calls to my door. It doesn’t have to be this way. I
