Same for me. Mine was a time-served Vauxhall apprentice, one-time garage foreman, would tackle anything. Cars, plumbing, electrics, you name it. He drew the line at wet building trades tho', as do I, but pretty much anything else was fair game.

Mrs S carries one of those for her Mum to get into the F-Pace. Mum is about the same height as Mrs J!That reminds me of the loaner RR Sport I had for a week last year when Her Greyness died. My wife stands a full 4ft 11" and was unable to climb into the thing. I had to carry one of those fold-up steps with us. And I told her these things can come with magic, slide-out steps. (Still wouldn't have one.)
