  11. Thanks for taking your time to post this video. Nice and easy instructions. Now I need to try to patch up my damage Thet I caused by putting my foot in from the loft and made a right mess in my cream carpet and partner not at all happy!

May have to get a professional in but before I do that I will have a go (& no doubt make a more mess!!)
