Rotten Plaster and What's Next for a Complete Novice...

Hi all!
Firstly, if this post is in the wrong place, please move it to the appropriate thread, thanks.

Recently, I tried to erect a new bathroom cabinet.
Given the size of my bathroom, there's only one place to put it, which because of tiling, is already quite high.
It's an outside wall with plaster on the inside, then concrete, then brick.
Drilling is very difficult.
The plaster came away and crumbled quite easily and I'm left with a couple of large holes in the plaster which I can easily fill BUT that plaster I fill it with will also be the site of the new holes.

...aaaaand finally, the question.
What's the best way to right the plaster, site the new holes, all so it doesn't fall down?

I'm not very good at DIY.
If the advice is for a drunk six year old, I'm okay with this.
Thanks for reading!

Hi wickeddna,
Sorry to tell you but it looks like the plaster has blown off the wall. You will have to cut it back until you find firmly attached plaster then replaster the hole.
Regards S
