Hello everyone,

Well I have made a few posts on here and got some great help and everyone seems really friendly and helpful so far.

My real name is Paul, Hotnuts is a name I earned at university for taking a liking to a small Hot Nut Dispenser in our local Irish bar. The tub said hot-nuts and the name stuck, suprisingly it was a group of girls I used to hang with that started it off. Only one of them ever really found out the truth ;)

I live in sunny Wales, in a small town called Aberystwyth. I came to university here back in 98 and fell in love with the place and never left. I am a member of the local RNLI Lifeboat crew and enjoy coarse fishing as well as DIY.

Normally I work self employed as a web developer/consultant, but i am currently working on a 1 year pilot project for the National Library of Wales on setting up a Community Archive project, I am handling all the IT and web side of the project.

I have been renting in Aberystwyth (Aber) since leaving Uni, and at the end of July purchased my first house with my long term girlfriend, who is not that impressed with some of my drilling, plugging and redrilling of her kitchen walls.

Unfortunately I am going into hospital on Monday for some major surgery which is not going to be pleasant, so now I have said hello and introduced myself you probably wont hear much from me for a while, but rest assured i will be back in 8 - 10 weeks with some more dumb learner questions.

Anyone from around my way let me know, project for end of this year is to convert the loft into bedroom and en-suite so will be looking for lots of tips. (article suggestion maybe?)

thanks
Paul

I hope the surgery goes well and you make a speedy recovery.

As for the wife moaning about diy, mine only complains that I dont want to do any, so dont let her moan too much if you are actually doing it :grin:

Hi Paul,

Welcome to the forum :thumbright:

8-10 weeks is a very long time and I hope that everything goes well for you and that you make a speedy recovery.

I have had a few very minor operations in the last few years, but never anything serious!

Best of luck, we'll still be here to help with the DIY answers when you return :wink:

No offence but I don't think I want your help, I would rather leave it to the surgeons and I dont care how good or expensive your drill was ;)

If you dont want to know dont ready any further.
Im going to have a section of my bowel removed, I had it done 4 years ago and ended up with a colostomy bag, there have been some complications since that operation and I need another to fix it. I have 3 tracts (fistulas) connecting my bowel and opening through my skin, which make life and work quite hard. They are hoping to fix it all in one go, but it means being opened up completely and no driving or lifting a kettle for upto 7 weeks afterward. Oh yeah they also gave me MRSA last time I was in, which didnt help with the healing.
Not looking forward to it, at all. Its a painful few weeks after the op, with wires, pipes and tubes in just about every orrifice and other places.

Thanks for the warm welcome,
see you all soon.
Paul
