    Right, not being a gadget person, and to be honest, I don't have a lot of spare cash to throw at workmen. I am after a Do it yourself book.
    Just a basic one, how to change the washer on the tap etc.
    I know that isn't rocket science, but it is when you were married for 24 years and the husband did everything around the home. (He thought I was too stupid to do anything).
    Any suggestions please?

    Have you tried getting a replacement husband? :)

    Only kidding this forum might be of use if you can't find something in any books -
    https://www.diynot.com/diy/

    The layout of that forum look oddly familiar.

    There's mostly a YouTube clip on how to do just about everything...

    You do get the odd unused present though - and the trashedness of a DIY book is the most reliable review.
