Today we went up to see the Shedders at Blaengarw Rugby Club. We went up there for a gathering with fellow Shedders from that area and what fun we had! They're a great bunch and it was lovely to chat with everyone and we even played some good old fashioned pub games. Can I say that you would all have been proud of the Clydach Shed as we came out tops. The others felt threatened to the point that I think some of them were thinking of cheating but I had my eyes on them. It was all god fun!
Soup of the day tomorrow will be leek and potato. Hooray I hear you say. I don't think everyone liked the minestrone last week, the pasta was not to everyone's taste.
Tomorrow the sun is supposed to shine, as it usually does on a Wednesday. However, dress up warm with many layers and the kettles will be on.
Good morning Shedders,
We certainly had a manic time last week with TV cameras rolling Wednesday and Friday, it should be quieter this week, no cameras are expected. There are some pictures below from the filming last week on S4C!
The weather could have been better but it did give us some comic moments. One minute it was dry and we were happily drinking tea and eating biscuits outside then, out of nowhere, it poured down. It was the quickest some of us have moved in a long time. As we were trying to get everything in the Shed the legs fell off the table. If you are a regular you will know this happens quite often and each time the cry goes out to fix it. It made the situation farcical with us all getting soaked in the process.
This Wednesday is going to be a special day. The electrics are in and working off the generator so we are going to have a switching on ceremony. It will be a fantastic moment after weeks of sometimes looking at each other in an almost dark Shed with just the glow of the fairy lights. Things are heading the right way.
Looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday, a warm welcome awaits in (possibly) a warm Shed. The kettle will be whistling anyway.
Well guys the excitement does not end on Wednesday!
Wales Online have been on the 'phone this afternoon and they want to come to the Shed on Friday. There is no end to our popularity so I hope you can all make it.
We might have to get a bigger kettle at this rate!
Good morning Shedders,
It was so nice to see you all last week after the Christmas break, I enjoyed chatting and catching up with you all on the Wednesday and Friday. The weather was good on both days, I couldn't believe we were sitting outside in January. What a bonus! It was warmer outside than inside the Shed. The passing drivers must have missed us over the break as we had a lot of toots. We make everyone's day.
Tomorrow we have the company of Heno S4C. They are going to be there in the day as well as the evening, filming us just as the BBC were doing, I'm name dropping now guys! We will know more about their plans when they arrive. Please do not be put off by the thought of the cameras, they just get on with it and it is great fun to watch how they go about things.
I have checked the weather and it is looking good for tomorrow, keep everything crossed that it won't change. Soup of the day is leek and potato, I know that is a favourite with many of you. Wear warm clothes as usual, kettle will be whistling so come and enjoy.
See you there
