You know when a child is all excited about something and can't stop bouncing around and telling you about it? I feel a bit that way inclined tonight.....
UJ has brought me a reconditioned petrol lawn mower for my acreage - and he cut it all in less than an hour this afternoon - ALL of it! What used to take me approaching three hours with the electric Flymo, he has whisked through in under an hour. I would have taken a photo but it was dark when I got home so that will have to wait - but it is rather a spiffing red colour and looks just the ticket. Can't wait for the flipping grass to grow again so I can have a go, but he did leave the little bit of front lawn so I can have a quick whizz around that if the weather stays fine tomorrow.
And the best bit? The mower was £40, and my dad has bought it for me! My birthday next week, so I should think it will be my present - couldn't think of anything better.
