Guardian columnist, author, and banjo player Tim Dowling is taking his first steps as a shedworker this week. He wrote in his usual self-deprecating mode about it in The Guardian . Here's a snippet: O n Thursday, the men arrive with the pieces of my new office shed. I spend the morning working in the kitchen, with a pad and a pen, so I can watch them put it together through the window. I am reliably mesmerised by the industry of others. By sunset, the walls are up, the roof is on and there are already wires hanging from the light fittings inside. “What have we done?” my wife asks, looking out at the box sitting in a shallow crater at the end of the garden. “It looks big, doesn’t it?” I say. There are plenty of comments below the line too... ------------------------------------------------- Monday posts are sponsored by garden2office, the Swedish garden office specialists.
