I think I've mentioned on here that we have a new little back garden. It's getting out of hand and we haven't the tools or the energy to deal with it.
This morning husband, who was busy, called me to speak to someone who was offering to do some gardening work.
I was so relieved to find some help I asked him to start. Then I began to realise he maybe wasn't capable. Pretty old and doddery, and all he had was a plastic bag with a couple of trowels and some secateurs in it.
I didn't want to send him away, so lent him some of our tools, but he ended up cutting his hand on a rose bush. Which I had to wash and disinfect etc. Paid him some of what we'd agreed and he says he's coming back tomorrow with his own strimmer (husband showed him his heavy one and he blanched ).
I think I've taken on a liability, he wants to return every 2 weeks. But he was such a feeble old fellow. Came on the bus from Windy Nook. Trying to eek out his pension I expect.
So what would you do?
