      Hacking is all about making something work just the way that you want it. For instance, I used Polymorph (which is a kind of mouldable plastic that gets soft when you heat it) to make a hook for holding shower gel in our bathroom.
      I’ve also hacked my cat flap with a timer so that it locks at night to keep our cat from going outside.

      Two days ago I used spent matchsticks instead of rawl plugs – to put right a cupboard door that was coming loose, that was nice, quick, and easy – I didn’t even leave the kitchen!
