Oh Dutch, I know the feeling, we have just had new french doors and I cannot get the hang of locking the blessed thing. My OH is quite exasperated that I cannot lock the mechanism, he shows me how to do it and I say, I know who to do it, I just have not got the strength to pull the bloddy handle up like you can! Tsk!

*crosses fingers* it keeps dry today.

Know the feeling, our front door has to be slammed to shut, if not, cant turn the key in the door when want to come in again.
Times I have gone out with key, and OH in, I have had to ring bell, as I cant turn key in the lock.
OH keeps saying, slam the door shut, but I forget.
