I broke my sports trowel whilst doing some heavy duty gardening earlier. A sports trowel, in case readers are unfamiliar with the term, is a gardening trowel with a foam handle, ideal for those taking part in all competitive events involving a trowel and for those who just like their trowel to be that little bit classier.
Anyway, mine is broken. Fractured right across the midle bit where the handle meets the bladey section, you know the bit. I’m not quite sure where to replace it – if readers have any ideas then please do write in. I think the original trowel may have come from the E S K Warehouse in Eastbourne, purveyor of general household and quality items. (I cannot believe E S K doesn’t have a website. Unbelievable.)
There are two consequences of today’s breakage. One: the large and substantial weeds on the lawn will have to remain. Two: when I garden in future I will just remember to take it that little bit easier. After all, a broken trowel impresses no-one.
