Sheds and summer houses

August 2, 2012

The need for a refuge – somewhere a man can firtle around on his own – is a basic instinct (no, not that kind of basic instinct). So when I see images of sheds, summer houses (like the one in this West Sussex home), even old garages, I feel a little flutter. I haven’t got my own refuge at the moment, but I dream of what I’d do if I had. A recording studio to create that hit single that never was. A workshop to mend those bikes that were left to rust in the rain. Somewhere to do a bit of potting, perhaps? Hmm, let’s forget that last one.  So women, when you’re dreaming of that new kitchen extension, spare a thought for ‘im indoors and what he’d like. Plus think of all the benefits of not having a man around the house…
