More than a month now.
Peter still hasn't cranked his new fancy ride-on mower into action.
This morning I noticed a rugged looking little bloke who looks surprisingly like the wrestler Kurt Angle hunting what appears to be a rare albino feral pig hiding in his jungle.
Peter told me on Saturday that the grass has stopped growing so he didn't seem to be in any hurry to play with his new toy. Funny how he has a different climate to us, as ours is still growing.
