I just wombled a shed.

default I just wombled a shed.

Post by Hairyloon on 13th April 2011, 3:47 am

Walking down the road towards my truck this morning a chap calls out "Hey do you want a shed?"
Which is of course a "do bears crap in the woods" kind of question, but I am damn sure that bears don't crap in every wood, so the real question was did I want this shed.

So I looked at it and my first thought was that I was going to need a bigger lorry. :?
It was not one of those flimsy things you get from B&Q, but a proper construction, made of wood and nails and big sheets of board.

Took us the rest of the day to dismantle it and my first thought was right. Didn't help that I started the day with it half full though. :?

As a former neighbour of mine, a father of three girls, once said to me - "A man can never have too many sheds you know !" Laughing

I reckon you've just got to have the right kind of wagon. Wink
Mine has got my name written on it in great big metaphorical letters (CW can confirm that)... I should probably write my phone number on there in actual letters one of the days. :?

Strangely Mr C and I are currently thinking about reducing the number of sheds we have. I have warned him that he will probably regret it, but he seems set on the idea. Someone on the allotments we back on to may end up being very lucky then!

Sounds like I need to get myself a truck then too!

Some of it is going to be a new floor for the aforementioned truck. Wink
I've given some away 'cos I was fretting about my springs (or more
realistically fretting about plod looking at my springs), and the rest
is likely to become a couple of new sheds down the allotment.
Anything left over can go in the heat to energy converter. Wink

You could hire a 'loon if it is easier. Wink
