Memoirist, novelist and cultural commentator Caitlin Moran is also a shedworker (you can see her garden office in the background of the photo above). Here she is talking about it in The Guardian : I finally “invested” in an office/shed at the bottom of the garden, which is where I now spend most of my day. Before, I used to work on the patio, because of the smoking. Man, I have sat out there in some grim weathers... After a long day of work, it’s great to give my arse a break by walking from the bottom of the garden to the front room, and then sitting on the sofa until 10pm. And this week in The Times (paywall, sorry): Downstairs in the sweet September morning, cup of tea in hand, open the back door, head to the writing shed, everything to live for, and WHAMMO. Spider in the face. A 12ft web around the head, tea everywhere and eight arachnid eyes peevishly staring into mine, going, “I’m sorry. Did you want to use that door? It’s just I thought I’d pop a face trap over it. Because it’s spider-in-the-face season.” ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tuesday posts are sponsored by Garden Spaces , suppliers of contemporary garden buildings, offices, gyms and studios, many of which do not require planning
