It was a very wet Friday at the Shed and I honestly did not expect many to turn up, how wrong was I?!
We arrived slightly later than usual which was not good when we needed to clear bird tables, wheel barrows and ladders out of the Shed (in the pouring rain) before we could get in. On top of that we had to boil two kettles on a gas camping stove, which is not the quickest and set the tables and chairs up so everyone could sit down. Oh yes, we were also trying to get the generator firing on all cylinders so we could have light.
Despite the total chaos there was a party atmosphere going on as one of the Shedders was celebrating. Chocolates, cake and biscuits appeared as well as a dozen extra people and everyone started singing happy birthday. The kettles started whistling as a chorus to our sing song and I began to wonder if I was going mad. The electrician walked in, the lights came on and everyone shouted "hooray" before giving our lighting magician three cheers. It was so funny you had to laugh.
Last Friday taught me one thing, not to dread a wet day at the Shed.
Looking forward to doing it all again on Wednesday. Hope to see you there!
