Standing between me and my shed are one climbing frame, one small shed and its contents, three compost bins, a hazlenut tree, assorted shrubs – oh and several thousand pounds. So in true project management style, I am breaking this down into bite size chunks.
The climbing frame has proved surprisingly easy.
Only my sons’ friends seem to play on it – our boys have outgrown it, so it has to go to make space. I thought son number two might suddenly become fond of it, but catching him while playing on the DS was a good ploy and he agreed to it going without looking up. Ian proved equally helpful and took it to pieces without a murmer. Wokingham freecycle provided at least 20 takers (should I have ebayed it and contributed to the pot??) and now I have a big chunk of space.
If time allows today, I am going to attack the shed. It will fall down happily – I think only the contents are keeping it upright. Then we can have a good bonfire. The question is, what is inside it? More Freecycle fodder or will it need storing?
The cash to finance the shed is also underway. I am doing a short term contract for a well know courier company. It’s proving a bit more full on than anticipated, but each day is another plank.
