It was the best of times, it was the worst of times........
A bittersweet thread - pain and pleasure, reason to be cheerful and curmudgeonly.
The shed had to go. It had been up since 2008 and was hardly used - my wife used it in the last years for her arty-crafty stuff, but apart from that it stood empty. But, it's going to a good home. My niece is taking it, and its her husband in the shots. Started on Saturday - the shingles posed an unexpected issue and then a couple of the top logs were 'invisibly' nailed which was a pain. Hoped to do it in a day, but the roof took too long - so reconvened on Sunday praying the rain would hold off. Literally started spitting as we started, then turned into full blown rain - then as we finished (about midday) and my niece's husband went home, the rain stopped. Sod's law.
Sad to see it go, as it held so many memories of my wife, but glad as it would have just deteriorated and fallen apart anyway - and at least someone will be using it.
