After much faffling about at local hardware stores we couldn’t find a blade for our trusty old Black & Decker GX230C so cut our loses and bought a new lawnmower. Joy. A smashing new Flymo Roller Compact 3400:
How much more adulty and nearly married can you get? It looks like a baby’s pram. A bright orange and black lawnmower is hardly manly. It’ll be like pushing an off colour bumble bee round the garden. But thankfully, in typical British fashion, my purchasing of gardening equipment has meant its pissed it down for the last 2 days. Hooray!
