Photo-a-Day  (Wednesday, 20th March, 2019)


Progress on turning The Beeches into ‘Albert’s Shed’. From the amount of material that has gone into skips, the inside of the original house has been pretty much gutted.

Anybody who doesn't know will be wondering why they are turning a nice place like the Beeches into a shed for Albert

Man must have his shed after all!

Man-cave is the new buzz word, Veronica!

Us women need our shed's too. I got one for my 50th birthday .... it's brilliant.

I believe so Johnnie and Bradshaw's girl I inherited one. Been in this morning to get at the lawn mower - it's more like a pig sty at the moment- must get round to tidying it up....not a job I like..

I must say I can't think of anything more miserable than messing about in the shed. My brother and his wife have a shed each! They are OK for chucking plant pots and stuff in!

Love mine. Not a shed, its the full length of the house and the more room there is the more stuff gets put in. It's a wonder I can lay my hands on things but I can.

The girl next door had left her house
Then went through yonder door.
Its opening, airs a 'cavalcade'
Of travelled things, and more.

Its window's wide . . . say two by three?
And decked the day t'was bought,
With Eastern fabric nicely splayed - Those Shantung curtains bought.

Her four-inch pots; old Bispham-made,
She cadged as girl when jobbin',
And still she checks them every day
To please her friend the robin.

So muse on her, that child of dreams,
- not always want of Rome -
Then let us play our chosen tunes
Within prized 'cedared domes.'
