....and sometimes it's the big ones!!

What does every man need (well in their opinion!!)....... a shed.

Lovely Hubby's pride and joy has been made to order, picked up by him and my brilliantly handy son from near Hastings,

and then erected over the course of the weekend, in all weathers.

They worked hard, sustained injuries, a whole panel fell on LH in high winds, luckily an unimportant bit of him took the full force.....his head!!   After a cup of tea he resumed work with only a red patch on his head and a HUGE bruise growing steadily by the hour on his upper arm, after all when your new toy is here you have to assemble it fully no matter what!

Working in tandem to get the roof on yesterday.....

....occasionally getting distracted by low flying aircraft and birds, but now it's almost complete, just final alterations needed to the doors and the glass needs to be trimmed as it's 2mm too big for the window gap, how annoying when you want to play with your new toy!

So it's been all hands on deck this weekend with all three of us doing little things, big things and taking just a little bit of time to enjoy ourselves, with a well earned meal out last night at our favourite eatery.

Now I'm painting the fireplace in the kitchen in my favourite shade of green paint, luckily LH loves it too ..... in fact he loves it so much he's just had 10 litres of the same shade mixed to paint his new Man Shed.
