Help - triangular back garden

Hi, I’m looking for some ideas on what to do with the garden in my new house so thank you in advance for any ideas/help!
The shape of the garden is not ideal but I think I could make it really lovely. I have the same shape to the left of the house which I am planning on building a nice shed so the garden to the rear as in the photo is just for enjoyment. I work long hours so would like to keep maintenance to a minimum. So far I have an idea of building a large seat in the far corner with comfy cushions so I can sit and read etc in the sun. Also would like a fire pit and bbq. I will also look at getting a 6 seater table and chairs.
Sorry for the rambling and I hope that makes sense but if you have any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

    If you could extend your patio on the right you cold do a rectangular version of something like this perhaps .

    People could guess roughly the size if your slabs are 30cm /1ft square?
    But if you could give some measurements as it is a little difficult to understand even with photos. :)

    There's also the fence panels to help gauge the size of the garden, but measurements or a plan drawing would be ideal.. For me, knowing where the sun hits through the day and shade is the most important.

    My guess is the garden is about 9m wide and 9m to the far corner from the house, and then maybe 2m to the near corner from the house, and you've got like a 2m strip of paving slabs outside your house?
