One man and his shed........


By aliwya


Just a quick update from me, because I havn’t been on here for a while.
As some of you will know “Oddbillie” and myself are planning to get married next year…….thats if……… I can prize him away from his beloved….potting shed!

He just sooo loves it, he’s even bought flowers to decorate outside it…..

I can’t remember the last time I was given any flowers…, guess i’ll have to wait until he grows me some in his “potting shed” :o)

Here I am peering into the potting shed…………longingly……lol.

But seriously….I am sooo pleased that Dan has really got “into” the gardening, more this year, he’s saved us ££sss because he’s grown so much from seed and everything he’s planted has grown…..well done Oddbillie…loves ya x

"He`s really got the bug " and thats a shed to be proud of, he`s sooooooo tidy,puts mine to shame, after 43 yrs I`d worry if he changed now .LOL.
Congratulations Ali, I`m pleased for you both .......

Thanks San & Lincslass, I picked the chair/pot up last week while out on a shopping adventure with my daughter.....its soo cute sitting outside his little "potty shed" lol.
He certainly has got the gardening "bug" Lincslass, its great.... but I didn't know he could be so neat & tidy......his desk up in the office is a train wreck... lol.

Anything to get a laugh eh Ali?

IF, you were to tell these fine folk the real truth........your idea to buy the PS for me to grow stuff but my thinking is get me out of house! I wish I had the time to get in there but work does not allow but if that elusive Lotto ticket comes up.....the Emmenthal account will fill up nicely!

My desk in the office is actually tidy compared to someone's sewing desk opposite the office floor is always covered in scraps of fabric and cotton. BUT, of course, you ladies will stick together as you always do and say that all can't be true.....:0)))

Love you dear!
