Yay! I'm sort of independent again!
#1
As some of you know, I have a little bit of difficulty when it comes to walking, <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rolleyes:' /> so it's been a struggle trying to cope with all the coops and sheds, when it comes to emptying all the bedding out. It used to go by trug and wheelbarrow to wherever for composting. Left me feeling shattered for days afterwards.



I have just purchased myself a little red ride on mower (sans cutting deck) that has a tow hitch on the back. I've borrowed the neighbours trailer that fits it, and hey presto! I CAN DO MY OWN FERRYING BACKWARDS AND FORWARDS! Am really chuffed, as hated having to wait until I had help before cleaning out! He's given me first refusal on the trailer should he decide to sell it. I've got the leaf sweeper, grass picker upper, as well as the mower (the deck has had it, major welds needed to fix it) for £150.00 - £50.00 of which is going to be bartered for birds! Now that is what I call good fortune!



You have absolutely no idea how delighted I am to be able to manage by myself again - new lease of life! <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Tongue' />



Watch out Zoe - I'm getting plenty of practice at racing around, so you're on for that race - your green tractor against my red tractor next year! <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/hysterical3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':hysterical' />

Ah, great stuff, sounds just the ticket! I shall come and inspect it in due course (or come for a wee shot of it!)

Do you owe me one? <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' /> It is an offer that I can't refuse! Will have a chat with the 'man what does' and see what he wants to do. The other mower deck is a mess and it just could be that two messes just might be made into one good one! Thanks 57 - you will probably be hearing from me over the winter with regard to it! <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/thumbup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbup:' />

Lucky you ! How nice to be able to do what you want, when you want - something most of us take for granted. I won't be letting the OH read this post, he's desperate for a ride-on-mower. Hmmmmm...........................ride-on-hoover ??....a dream come true.
I never make the same mistake twice. I do it at least five or six times, just to make sure !
