We have been out in the garden today and Hubby has cut the lawn both front and back. It always looks nice when it’s just done, but you know what it’s like, the mower can only do so much and the little trimming on the edges gets overlooked sometimes.
We have a strimmer, but our extension lead isn’t long enough for it to reach the bottom of the garden, so Old Clever Clogs here thought she’d get out there with a pair of scissors.
Yep. If you had any doubts, this confirms that I am completely and utterly NUTS!!!
This brainstorm of an idea followed seeing one of our neighbours tidying up the edges of his flower beds and round the bird table on his front lawn. I thought ‘I can do that!’
Brains of Britain here decided to trim the edge along the fence with a pair of scissors, also cutting back the long green dangly stuff that was choking the buddleia and rose bushes.
We need to replace our washing line before it twangs the next heavy load into the dirt and Hubby has just measured it. We need 15 meters of line, so that is from the back of the house to the post there. This little snippet of information therefore gives you an idea of HOW STUPID I am to trim along the sides (both I might add!) with a pair of kitchen scissors. OK, it could have been worse but the last pair of kitchenitus pilferous scissors were still in the greenhouse so I used those.
I’ve got backache, and I also have blisters, though luckily nothing has broken and it actually looks good.
I have added a couple of new items to our next DIY shopping list though…………
