Our lawns are a catastrophe and are so rough and pitted that since we moved in we have had to get a mowing service to cut them with a large mower.
But a lot of the worst part has been poisoned prior to being turned into a garden – and I have asked our garden person to patch the remaining parts of the lawn.
I can probably now manage the remaining lawn with a lawn mower – so bought one.
This arrived yesterday and I am itching to try it out. I did not do it today because I am cooking dinner for six tonight and cannot do this from intensive care.
It is an electric mower because I do not wish to mess about with mixing fuel – and – more importantly storing it in the garage.
There is of course a better than even chance that at some stage I will run over the cord – but I have checked and this will not electrocute me as the handle is insulated.
Our new TV has been installed in the bedroom. It comes with a keyboard. I do not know what I can use this for as I have not read the instruction manual – but I am excited by the prospect.
We are up to date with Game of Thrones and are praying that Tyrion will get out of his current fix – simply because he is one of the few people in the show that we can bear.
