better than designer handbags or a diamond ring

In my last post I showed you my new toys, the crafty bits ‘nd bobs I gave to myself the day before yesterday. But the big one, the mega cool new toy is a gift from J. He surprised me with it when he returned from his “I’m just going down into the village to get some beer for the barbecue” trip. I love my husband.

Look at this:

I’ve been longing to have one of these for at least 5 years. This is the perfect entry model with 2200 W and 40 cm “blade”. And in recent days we’ve learnt yet again that petrol power tools are a smelly, dirty, high maintenance affair. But this is electric and I can’t wait to try it out.

Tomorrow I plan to go to our local timber yard and see if I can scrounge a few lumps of wood of the tree trunk variety to get started.

Heaven, I’m in heaven, lalalalaalaalaaa.

Or better, diamonds chainsaws are a girls best friend!

    Ha, ha… tomboy-heaven. My dad gave me a “grouting-device” (dunno the word in any language) recently and I was so happy I wanted to grout my whole place. Hope you don’t go too ballistic with this one… ;)

    Congratz for such an awesome hubby. Enjoy you new toy! xoxo
