I have spent the day grappling with a new motorised, four-wheeled beast.
It’s a rear-wheel drive automatic.
And carries a massive engine delivering a huge 150cc.
I have a new lawnmower.
Or rather, I have a lawnmower.
A very expensive visit to the Nottingham store of Machine Mart yesterday led to a new member of the family.
A self-propelled Suffolk Punch.
So now, instead of Sam paying a guy £s every couple of weeks, we have entered the world of DIY lawnmowing.
I suppose I’ll need to buy a strimmer next?
If I get any good at it, maybe I should give up work and cut grass for a living?
