I've put it off for as long as possible. I wasn't over-keen on attempting it, but I couldn't really avoid the job much longer. It has been very hot over the past few days. I'd even go as far as calling it a heatwave. The weather forecast has it that it's going to be even warmer over the next few days, so it wasn't such a good idea to put it off any longer. What do I refer to? As if you hadn't already guessed, getting out the lawnmower and using it to cut the grass at the front of the house. I cut the rear patch of grass a week ago today (which looks as if it will need doing within days. What with so much sun and the occasional rain, the grass is bound to grow at a faster rate, unfortunately.) When I eventually got on with cutting the grass, I found it a good deal more difficult than I'd imagined. It took a lot longer than anticipated, even though it's a not particularly large piece. It took a good deal longer than it would to do the grass at the rear of the house. Considering it's a lot flatter and would have been easier. How wrong could I be? A lot of weeds, more like hacking through the jungle with a machete, a lot of tough plants with thick stems. Having to unravel the cable and plug it into the socket within the hall of the house as well as having to bring the mower through the house, a lot of work to do a relatively simple task.
