Some of you who follow me on Twitter might have noted the tweets I sent out yesterday related to a lawnmower incident. No body parts missing unlike the video above! If you missed them here’s a bit of a recap;
It was pretty dramatic at the time I can tell you. This was the second time (ever!) that I had mown the lawn. I was removing the catcher and noticed a big clump of grass still left inside the lawn mower. I naively thought I’d just reach in and remove it. It didn’t cross my mind at all that the reason it’s called a lawn mower is because it mows the lawn and has sharp rotating blades inside to enable it to do this! Suffice to say, it wasn’t long before I discovered this fact. Lawn mower was left running after I’d extracted my hand, saw the blood and ran to the kitchen sink all the while screaming ‘Oh my God, Oh my God’, or something to that effect.
Thankfully, my finger was intact, just badly cut and badly bruised. After receiving some much needed comfort from my children, I was back out there finishing off the job. This time, when removing the catcher, I decided to leave the offending clumps of grass to their fate!
A birthday for me this weekend then back to school on Monday. Have a good one and stay safe!

Glad you still have your digits. What, no stitches? Brave woman getting back to the job. Can’t say I would do the same. Have a wonderful birthday, Jenny!
Good on you for getting back & finishing the job! I’ ve never mowed the lawn, and now I don’t think I’m game to try!
I’m impressed that you went back out and finished the lawn – you go girl!!
Glad you will have all of your digits intact to celebrate your birthday…have a great day and watch out for the candles!
