  Then I did some internet searches on getting a new drill.
My younger brother was selling my late dad's drill bits on a internet selling site.
(I did want these, and kept telling him.I did find out where he was selling them.I still have to pay to have them back.My brother doesn't do nothing for free!) 
My younger brother had given me an old drill that belonged to my dad,(It doesn't work!) but not the one I wanted.The nice drill (I wanted),someone else has got, or my younger brother sold it before I could get it. So the hunt for a nice drill that wasn't to expensive. I found the exact drill at Wickes my dad had. Paid for it, now have to wait for the email to go and pick it up.
I had bought a new garden bench last week.But the certain website I bought it from, emailed me saying it was out of stock and had a refund.
Found another garden bench.
