Our lawnmower blew up and other adventures!
First thing on Sunday morning my 3 year old son got in a major strop. I not very wisely (in hindsight) sent him outside to calm down and turned my back on him briefly. 5 seconds later I heard a bang and then for the rest of the day crack, crack crack…. My glass sliding patio door is now a very pretty mosaic of cracked glass.
Not great, except that I am an optimist (or at least try to be) and there is always something positive to take from these things
My son has definitely learned a lesson about what happens when you throw a stone at a glass door and has promised he is never ever going to repeat that again (let’s hope so)!
It was very interesting to see the way the glass cracked but stayed in place and because of that no-one got hurt! As far as I’m concerned it is only a thing and it can be replaced. My son however cannot, so a massive thanks to whoever invented shatter proof glass!
We don’t need to worry about affording to replace the glass as my husband is very hot on having ‘rainy day savings’ – having savings in place for the unexpected such as the washing machine breaking down, or in this case needing to replace a pane of glass.
We were able to go out and replace the lawnmower immediately at a cost of £3 ish to us. The reason we were able to go and replace the lawnmower so quickly and cheaply was because we collect Nectar points on our shopping and just accumulate them until we need them for something – like a broken lawnmower.
