Made the most of it...

Hiya all, have been making the most of the weather and no Steven at the weekend, and really went to town with the garden shed's, yes I said shed'S as we have 3, all different shapes and sizes. As we are an end house we have garden going round one side and the back, so at the front had privet trees planted and put a 5 x 7 shed up, stained it green to blend in with the trees, but then the kids got more toys so in went a plastic one next to it and finally a tall 3ft one behind.

Well I'm getting a little fed up with lifting the lawn mower over the large and plastic ones and it looks so messy that I decided to see about getting one big shed but our garden curves, so looked into buying the biggest one that would fit, but still felt it was too small, so decided to see if we could have one made to fit the area.

We had a couple of people round to size and price up, not much in it, so went for the more local one, as it's being made cannot have it till middle of September but in fact have asked them to keep it till beginning of October as Steven is on another weekend break and it means both Clive and I can sort out where we want to put things back. (Also means it will keep my mind busy with not worrying too much about littlen, LOL)

The size is 9ft wide with 8.5 ft depth one end and 12 ft the other, with the back joining both ends, also have double doors and a pitched roof, thank goodness they are putting it together as god knows what and when it would have been done if Clive and I had to do it.


Now the problem is the waiting, I actually am wishing my life away, as I want it NOW.

Managed to get rid of 15 carrier bags to play scheme, Beechside (Steven respite place), his large trike, 2 x pogo sticks to a couple of friends, 3 black sacs to the tip, one to a charity shop, and a very large box of toys to the local Toy Library, so quite pleased with my self, not bad for a couple of weeks work, I think not.



PS still have a swing seat, hammock seat, trapeze and rings????? and a double swing with a life time guarantee for them to go on.....
