I want a shed. Why should men have all the fun? I think I’m missing out. Barbara Hepworth had a shed and so did Dylan Thomas. I read all about their sheds in My cool shed. I might have to make one, but I will have to visit a shed owner so I could borrow their tools. I love the old sheds that men have. They built them from recycled materials and didn’t have to worry too much about earthquake proof foundations and building codes. I think my husband would be happy to have my knitting wool and sewing machine relocated to a shed.
In my shed, I would escape from the ironing. I could curl up with a good book,and enjoy a cup of tea with a jam tart. I think my shed should have a big window with red curtains. It would have a long bench for my craft UFOs (Unfinished Objects) and there would be lots of shelves for my bucket list books.
If you were to visit my shed at around 3 o’clock and I wasn’t there, you would find the key under the garden gnome. The jam tarts will be in the tin labelled ‘buttons’. Make yourself a cup of tea. I’ll be back soon.
