Been an eejit and pranged my Punto

Hi Everyone, I've been a wally and gone in to a post in Tesco car park. The damage doesn't look too bad - the fixings on the passenger side headlight have broken (but the light itself is fine), the lighting assembly looks out of alignment and the channel down the left hand side of the bonnet looks about a millimetre out. The electrics are still working perfectly too. Is this a garage job, or can I push everything back in to place and replace the headlamp myself?

Here they are, apologies for the quality, had to take them on my girlfriend's camera phone. As a bonus, you get to see what the tip of my finger looks like though...

Cheers mate, I'll have a go at pushing the panel back a bit tomorrow to see how everything sits.
