"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Weekend shopping

Jobs done this weekend:

Bought a new shed for the garden
Bought new carpet for the living room and laminate for the dining room
Broke up old fence panels
Cut up sawn off branches from trees at bottom of garden
Mowed the lawn
Bought bedding plants for the pots on the patio and planted them.

Keith is worried about the new carpet. He is afraid of what I will do to him if he gets it dirty as he has done with the old one.
He is right to be afraid....!
However, the new shed is big enough to take NASA and him if necessary. Well, it's the new thing, isn't it - working from your garden shed? :)


  1. Blimey! You were busy! I feel quite tired now reading all that - might have to go lie down now for 20 mins.

  2. Let's hope the energy continues, Sue. :)

  3. I feel positively lazy after reading what you have been up to.

  4. If I had a garden then I'd definitely have a garden shed which I could 'work' in.
    Have a good week.

  5. Well, Rosie, it's amazing how much energy you suddenly find after the end of term. ;)
    Flighty, I think it's a 'man thing'!

  6. a friend of mine worked from his shed. He fell out with his neighbour who grassed him to the council and he got assessed for business rates on the bloody thing. Best just to stick to smoking your pipe, doing crosswords and avoiding laying carpets and sawing things up

  7. Keith does that sort of thing all the time, Arthur.

  8. My shed's a repository for lacewings, spiders and bluebottles. I get to smoke my pipe there occasionally to choke the buggers. Sheds are great.

  9. They are, Birdman, but being an arachnophobe of the first order, I would have to object to the spiders.
