My New Drill

It only took about two seconds to make that hole. 8 amps of power, word.

Little Drill vs. Big Drill

Look at the little one vs. the new drill. BIG difference.

    I love that you do your home improvement projects with a dress on! If only we were neighbors … then we could’ve taken a tea break after you finished your project and I finished gardening in my skirt and sandals. :)

    I don’t know what’s more awesome – the fact that you now have the tool you needed, or the fact that you apparently do carpentry work in an adorable dress! ^_^

    hey, do you fancy giving us a rundown on what you know about tools? All I know about drills is that you can get cordless ones now…
    What should a gal look for in her drill? I have purchased a 3mt long ladder, coz I live on my own and wanted to be able to change my own smoke alarm batteries, without having to pay a handyman (coz they usually are men)to do it for me. Yeah, so now I have to buy a longer garden shed so I can fit the big mama ladder in it!
    Back to topic… what do you think? An occasional series – what tool and what it was used to do?

    Jenny, that’s a good idea! Maybe I’ll do a rundown of the tools I use most often, and what kinds of projects they can be used for. :)
