to cut the grass

I thought we are being told to 'stay at home' NOT stay indoors!

There's no one out in their gardens in the sunshine around here, well not the 8 or so that I can see.

I was gonna cut my grass out the front, it's 2 small patches, but it's open plan, so no fence, between neighbours or between my grass and footpath, will I be slung in jail! If I go out with the mower?

You'll have to watch out for the obligatory 'Can you do mine as well' comments from the neighbours.....but otherwise you should be ok.....

ps....Same with washing the car......

I snuck out during the night putting cards through people’s doors saying “why not help an old person by cutting his grass and washing his car” ... I’m waiting for one of the recipients to knock on my door :)

Ha ha all I've seen is neighbours cleaning windows and sweeping paths, they are obviously bored already.
It's day one of probably 3 months of lockdown so you need to pace yourself....
