Sheds and Fishing….


My husband has been very busy of late, in fact I have hardly seen him. He is either working in one place, or another! So, he decided he needed a day fishing, to recharge and calm his batteries. He books the date in, and spends a week talking about the day he will go fishing.

So, at 5.30 am he got up, got dressed in his fishing gear, loaded his stuff in the car (I have never seen so much stuff being taken for one day, you’d think it was a WEEK!!!) Anyway, off he goes!!!! I hear from him 2 hours later, all set up and sitting on the bank…. fishing. Well, it seems he is enjoying the day. He tells me the wind is blowing directly in his face, so its “a bit cold” and that his tea flask tipped over, so he only has half the tea he left the house with! He texts me later, to say he still hasn’t caught any fish… but he seems happy enough.

At 3pm he rings me… the car is packed, and he is coming home. He didn’t catch a fish… and he is cold. He comes in, smelling of the fish bait, needing a cup of tea and some warmth. A good day – spent “fishing”.

What did I do? Well, we have a shed (think warm shed, and cozy) so I spent my day sat in there, with the dog. Dog wanted to go in and out all the time until he finally settled. I worked, online, from the shed, with music on, the fire on just occasionally to keep me warm,  and the odd cup of tea to keep me going 🙂 (we have a kettle in the shed) so I had a lovely, chilling, relaxing day!

Give me a Shed any day – I don’t think I am cut out for Fishing 🙂
