The shed is growing … as, apparently, is my thumb. I don’t remember hitting it. Oh that reminds me, if working with young inexperienced builders, don’t ever say “When I nod my head, hit it with a hammer” referring to a nail that I thought didn’t need specifying. If you want me I’m either in […]


Suddenly my life seems to be dominated by sheds … which is a good thing. Posh cow shed which has no relevance to anything. The same day that I was invited to do an arty farty installation in Hastings, which will be shed based, I was asked to build a super duper shed/studio/storage facility/lawn mower […]


There is a cupboard in the bathroom I should have built 3 years ago … or rather there isn’t. Yesterday Lo, she is a terrible Goddess decided to take matters into her own hands. She bundled me out of the front door and shackled me to the roof rack and drove to the nearest DIY […]


Lo, she is a terrible Goddess sits on one sofa and reads her book. I sit on the other sofa and read my book. When we have finished our books we swap. The difficulty lies in not giving away the ending. Whereas the TG can maintain a poker face, happy endings always make me well […]

Following on from yesterday’s post – I’ve recovered from the bout of mildew I caught whilst being made to cavort in the garden BTW – the upside is that Lo, she is a terrible Goddess wants a sculpture made. This one would have been very suitable ….. …… but no longer lives with us – […]


What a heady combination! The creative and gastric juices flowing all over the place. Avid readers, I bring you …….. ….. The House of Gingernuts!!!! Now the shed is operational, goodness only knows what could happen. I just know you’re as excited as I am. Have a lovely weekend …… and let the farce be […]


The shed is fitted and ready to go ……… ………. and I’ve wasted no time. Within seconds of fitting the final shelf I created this ……. …….. which was created within seconds. “Dancing to a Different Tuna” questions so many aspects of modern life I don’t know where to begin …….. so I won’t. It […]

CATCH 22 …….

…….. or it might be 23 …… It’s been a tad chilly recently which has been very frustrating as I’ve wanted to get on with fitting out my studio …….. OK OK -  shed …….. sheeeesh! The first job is to insulate it so that it can be made cosy [with the help of a […]
