So what do you do when you don’t really feel like doing anything on a cool wet Sunday?
You find loads of old programmes to watch on TV of course.
Old as in years old. Old series from years back.
They aren’t just on air on Sunday but each day of the week. Early morning and then repeated in the afternoon!
Last Sunday even I got high on reruns…..I watched a programme about sheds! A competition to find the Shed of the Year. Dated 2015!
I vaguely remembered seeing it before but the craziness of it reeled me in again. These weren’t just places to store spades and forks, secateurs and lawn mower…..these were works of art…..costing time and money to the owners.
Anyway amongst the entries was the tiniest little ‘thing’ just a little room with space just enough for a chair (and a heater) Called a micro shed – it was actually tagged on the back of a miniature steam train and used as the guards van.
There was a tree house shed, well more like a spacious living room high up in a tree with views of the countryside for miles about.
Then there was the Japanese Tea House shed decked out with oriental furnishings and decorations , set in a Japanese themed landscaped garden
But also included (more for interest sake I think) was my favourite – a hut/shed previously owned and used by the author George Bernard Shaw…… just a standard small compact wooden shed complete with table chair typewriter heater and a bed attached to the wall. What was special about it was…..something I’d never known about so was quite fascinated by the fact…..the whole structure was set on a turntable. So it could be gradually moved to face the sun. As my grandchildren used say years ago…..how cool is that grandma!
