A few more things require doing around the home before I can trial sail ‘Minnow’.
One pressing job I had to do was to cut long grass at the borders of the lawns. I couldn’t do so, because my old Flymo strimmer got itself twisted up in knots! The nylon line kept slipping from the spool, so that it tangled around the spindle. Therefore the time came for acquiring a new strimmer, and today I bought a GT25 Qualcast for £23.99 from Homebase. Having tested the strimmer, I think I have a bargain, but time will tell.
