I had to go to the hardware store to buy some chick crumble - it is amazing how much tiny chicks can eat! And while I was there, I noticed an item that I have always wanted was on special. $30 off, so I thought I would treat myself.
Now I realise that 99% of women would not in any way consider this a treat! But I think we have ascertained that I am a tad different!
I mowed the lawn using it today and it felt so good. No petrol wasted and a free workout. I am in love with my 1950s toy (this was what Legoman called it!)
|Cuddlepie loved it and wanted to do it all but I was having too much fun!|
|I wished I looked so glamorous while mowing!|
I can now have grass paths between my garden beds without having to worry about using fuel to mow them. Just measure them so my lovely new mower fits!
The only thing I was unhappy about was the blade replacement availability ie. zero. The hardware man said replacement blades are unavailable as most items are made to be throwaway rather than repairable. Pretty disappointing, but I guess to be expected. It seems to be the way with pretty much anything.
But I still love my mower - I want to mow the lawn again tomorrow, just for fun!
Is anyone else as old-fashioned and behind the times as me and uses a push mower? Although Legoman did make an astute observation. When he called it a 1950s toy, I just mentioned that soon everyone may wish they had a push mower and he said maybe I was actually ahead of the times and it is more like a 2020 mower. I think I just lead to show by example, do rather than say.
The weather is looking very spring-like for the weekend, quite warm and sunny. So I will definitely be in the garden!
