1.5 Acres of mowing (well, near enough)

Courtesy of a friend's son, my mower is now working. I have 1.5 acres, or near enough, to mow. I have boring inside stuff to do, too. It's spring!

When I read the papers I'll probably have a spray about something. I'll be back later.

In the mean time, here's something for your entertainment from Wand - I'll be outside doing stuff.

Hi Mini
It's actually 6,000 square metres, minus the house and shed.
And around the house is mowed with the ride-on, my friend's son did it for me. Now I just have to do the tidying up. (Down the back is slashed when it's needed.)
I got the rates during the week.
Interesting because the councils were amalgamated and this is the first rates notice since that's happened. Normally my annual rates bill is about, oh, $1,200 or so for land land water. This is a six month account for $770 odd. Less about $70 for payment before the due date. It means that the rates have gone up about $200 p/a.
I thought that amalgamating the councils wouldn't cost more.
The sods have also deducted a $20 credit before working out the discount!
