This liddle bewdy is the Easycut 350 reel mower, approximately $100 from Bunnings. (An updated version of the sort of thing you might have seen your dad or granddad using. It paid for itself in about 6 weeks (each fortnightly lawn-mowing session cost $30)
Until now I have paid someone else to mow the lawn. For a while it felt good to see the truck turn up.. one less job to do, I even felt a bit smug that I didn’t even ‘have’ to mow it. Oh we have STAFF to mow the lawn… for goodness sake I wouldn’t know the first THING about those contraptions etc…
And then I realised that paying someone else was, in short, not required. And possibly merely a case of laziness on my part. Lazy, Moi? hard to believe I know.
The best part is this:
the sound of dozens of grass blades beheaded at once is more gratifying than I ever expected.
