Later . . . I have now managed to complete the cutting of the grass. Just as well to do it when it's dry as it's not really safe with the electric cable and so on. Also, if the grass is wet it clogs up the machine. Hopefully it should last a a few more weeks until it needs cutting again.
We still live in hope regarding the repairing of the fence. I can't believe it's nearly a year since we had the visit from the landlord and the promise of a replacement fence. Pigs might fly is the term that comes to mind . . .
I am in the middle of re-writing the story I have been developing. I have several sections written and I am sort of assembling it all in the correct order as well as re-drafting what I have written as I go along. It's quite a difficult job as I have it all on various bits of paper. Now I have some of the characters more or less fully developed it really helps the writing. I am really pleased with how it's going.
