By John McCrone from Stuff New Zealand I hope you are sitting comfortably with your laptop on the kitchen table, fresh-brewed coffee and a home-baked scone at hand. The house is quiet and Saturday stretches endlessly before you. All your unhurried attention can be devoted to the task of reading. Time is your friend....

If you needed any more persuading that shedlife is inspirational, then take a look at Shed of the Year runner-up Simon Kirby's video at Newbury Today . Not only does he show us around his marvellous shed, he also finishes off with a special Ode to A Shed and promises that he is working on a book of shed-inspired poetry. Meanwhile John Davies aka Shedman has been busy in his specially-erected B&Q; shed (pictured above) at the Ledbury Poetry Festival, performing and welcoming fellow shed enthusiasts. He has certainly not been idle as he has also written a special poem for National Shed Week: Encomium for Shed Week In Shedbury they’re celebrating the winners of Shedweek, flags and bunting deck the streets and houses of Shedwick; Sheddingham resounds to the cheers of sheddie folk and Bedfordshire has change its name to extend the joke. In allotments, along the tracks, the sheds of Britain amass to join the chorus of salute to the winners of each class. 'All hail!' they cry, as thunderclouds deliver another load, leaving the sheds slightly damp but not at all subdued. And to you, Tim from Sudbury, the highest accolade: The Rugby Pub of Suffolk, the finest ever made; octagonal with roof lights, complete with double doors three fridges and a hammock, Shed of the Year is yours. Upsteps a larch-lapped champion to raise the cry again across United Sheddom, from every shed and man: 'To you the victor’s laurels, to you the winner’s band! The Rugby Pub of Suffolk is the best shed in the land!' ©Shedman 2008 All rights reserved Keep up to date with all the latest happenings at Shedblog , the official blog of National Shed Week 2008.

Construction work has got underway during National Shed Week on artist Nicky Coutts’ A Tower in the Minds of Others at Tatton Park as part of its Biennial celebrations . Taking shape near the Japanese Garden is a series of stacked English garden sheds, which collectively resemble a Japanese pagoda - the final structure will eventually be 6m high and will be officially launched on July 19. The Tower is one of six semi-permanent commissions created for Tatton Park Biennial during Cheshire’s Year of Gardens ’08. Plans and proposals for the Tower, below, courtesy Capstone Consulting Engineers Ltd. Thanks to Nikki Spencer for the alert.
