Today is a BIG DAY for Nick.
One of the main criteria when looking for a bigger house in France was that it had a garden big enough to require a sit-on mower!
On Monday Nick cut the grass using the ancient heap of a petrol mower left behind for us by the previous owners. It was kind of them to leave it but it was hard work to use. After an hour of heaving the thing around Nick had sore wrists, a sore back and I had sore ears!
So we hopped it over to Loches in search of a new one. We ordered it from Bricomarché and early this morning they delivered it!
A rather nice young man brought it in a truck and trailer and gave Nick full instructions on how to use it. Great service.
A happy Nick with his new boy’s toy!
Checking it has an engine – with the help of my dad!
