I'll have to use scissors!
I was only half serious whan I asked Grenville to lend me his little lawn mower! We have a lot of grass to cut in our garden and so we bought a sit-on mower when we came here in January 2005. We bought it from B&Q as they were quite a bit cheaper than specialist firms. It has been fine up to a fortnight ago – by the way, my husband is in charge of grass-cutting! Now, however, it is standing idle – it’s gone wrong and needs a new part.
This is what the grass looks like. I nearly lost Henry in it! I can only find him when he wags his tail… :-)
No, oops, sorry, that was out in the fields on our walk today…
This is what it really looks like.
Here’s the problem. If you buy from B&Q, did you know that the mowers are specially made for them and are therefore different and inferior to the ones you buy at the ‘proper’ shops? No. nor did we until it went wrong. And you try getting parts! We are waiting for it to be delivered to the shop then we can make the trek to get it… then fit it… then….maybe the grass will get cut!
In the meantime, I hate the garden looking so unkempt, so I am thinking about getting the scissors out…
