In Britain, we say that We have jobs to do when we refer to do it yourself or housework.
I prefer the more Americanised word of chores.
Chores sounds more friendly.
Today I have fixed up a knackered old vintage cooler cupboard. The dog bites on the legs couldn't be disguised too well, but the door now closes and the fabric panels now fill the old ripped wire screens and the whole thing looks a tiny bit tidier.
I'm thinking of buying myself a tool belt!
