...but I certainly can!!
I have been REALLY busy recently, doing all sorts of jobs and things that have, in all honesty, totally knackered me out!
A few days ago, the weather started to be nice, dry and sunny, so I took the opportunity to get my little tractor out of the shed and cut the back lawn.
In previous attempts, it has only been towards the end of the job that the lines have been reasonably straight and uniform, but today was my lucky day, and almost straight away they were looking good!
As well as cutting the grass, there are some patches of bare earth, which needed to be sown with grass seed. The largest of all these patches was left when a soakaway (basically a big hole in the ground filled with rubble and stones, to let the rainwater drain away properly) was never sorted out.
Jo took some photos of me in the process of sowing the seed rather well I think - you can see how much effort I put in, and how exciting the job was! You've heard of 'extreme sports' well this was 'extreme seeding'!
Once the seed was sown, the ground was in need of a good watering, which again Jo managed to capture rather well!
(Please note the hose on the extreme right of the picture before you think bad of me!)
I then covered the area with bird netting to prevent the little blighters eating all my lovely new grass seed!
This was the start of my outdoor action hero stuff, more to come very soon!
