Had a lot of fun on these wet and snowy and cold days planning which bird house I would build, decided on two, one for us and one for the grandkids. As always the wife gets a say but we did both agree that this one suited us. I would do the putting together and she will do the decorating. Plan to involve the kids on how they want to do theirs – that will be a fun day!
One big downside of this month has been the weather, really too cold to be outside in my work shed and then to top it off the roof collapsed. Don’t know if it was wind, snow or age, our all three.woke up one morning to see it all caved in. isn/t it funny how you don’t notice things immediately if you not expecting it? There I was drinking my morning coffee absently looking out the window at the weather when realized something not quite right with the picture, took wife coming to look with me to point out my shed had no roof!!! Honestly maybe I deserve her comments of day dreamer. So, onto the internet to suss out options. Eventually decided to get a complete new shed, didn’t take much persuading as really need one slightly bigger and wife wants something less of an eyesore. Decided on a 12 x 8 wooden shed with 4 windows for good lighting; going to have it delivered free and bought it in the sale. We also decided to pay extra and have the old one properly demolished and the new one installed along with electricity. All in all about £1000 give or take a few quid, As we didn’t want to miss out on the sale and this month cannot draw out of savings again we decided to go for a loan. Back to internet and friends and in the end went with ferratum.co.uk. No fuss, easy website and good terms, so quite excited now, hopefully if weather allows I will be in and making those bird feeders by next month.
