Since David got ill our grass has not been cut! I have tried to get the sit on lawn mower working but it refuses to dance to my tune! All the controls are very heavy duty and I can't even get the handbrake off!
Our gardener John is now trying to strim the grass down. This would take a week, we are talking about almost an acre! I am trying to persuade him into at least trying to use the mower.....but he seems reluctant so yesterday David came up with one of his plans.....a wide path could be built all around it giving access to us in bad weather and getting rid of a lot of grass.....
As if by magic the man who does our building stuff for us appeared.....we walked around the area but David could only get half way. And then the penny dropped....he's getting the huge garden ready for wheel chair access!
Bless him he loves going out and right up to the top hedge but hasn't made it for some time! I walked around it with the builder....wide enough for a wheel chair....done in paving slabs and brick.....it will cost a fortune......but as David said cheerfully, we won't be spending money on much else for quite a while!
This plus the mans request to rent our barn from us to store old furniture in means that it is a viable proposition!
I have now laid several hosepipes out to show the desired path.., stipulated no straight lines, ...the bricks have been paid for and ordered....as yet there is no wheel chair but my dearly beloved thinks well ahead.....
This is sensible but I need a whole new set of brain cells to adapt to all the new solutions being considered!
