    What’s a girl without some decent tools?
    Mr loves telling the story about the year he got me a power drill for my birthday.
    People will usually go “Oh no, what did she say???” to which he answers “Thank you very much, that’s exactly what I wanted!”

    Congratulations, indeed. That looks like some serious fun!
    Every girl does need a good set of tools. When I moved out on my own I asked for a TV. Instead, my dad bought me a tool box filled with good quality basics that I still use 40 years later. He also gave me the Readers Digest book of Home Repair and told me to try myself before I called him.

    Aah, power tools for the discerning user. I made sure that a friend of mine set herself up with some of these. One suggestion though is to keep a look out for a matching right angle drill, with their much longer leverage they are excellent for use by arthritic hands.

    Drool, I’m seriously considering upgrading the cordless drill the Redhead bought for me years ago. The NiCad batteries are almost toast due to lack of use and “memory” problems, and I can’t find any drop-in lithium battery replacements.
    Congratulations. Enjoy.
