Now Darran has stopped laughing, I can report on my first training session with the drill and battery driver I had for my birthday.
Score out of 10: 4
It took me over a minute to drill my first hole; Darran had to check the drill was working properly and proceeded to drill the hole in about 5 seconds. The screw gun was in reverse gear when I tried the first screw - but how was I to know?!
In my defence I don't think this was a training session. This was a 'give Katie the tools, a drill, a screw and a scrap piece of wood, stand back and watch' session.
