Last autumn, on the last occasion when I wanted to use it, my venerable petrol lawn mower declined to start. It really really declined, several times; so the lawn has been shaggy all winter.
Cleared the shed out a bit today. Looked sternly at the lawn mower (which has had the same tank of petrol sitting in for 5 months now), primed it, pulled the cord twice and halle-chuffing-lujah; it started.
Perhaps the winter rest has done it good (or mayhap I have mower-repairing pixies in the shed?).
Any road up, lawn's cut!
