Simon and Jonty's building project

Simon has been building a shed in the backyard to fit our ever increasing 'stuff'. When we had Jonty, the computer desk was in with Oliver. We moved that out to the outside shed so Jonty would fit but trying to get in there amongst the bikes, chook feed, freezer, food storage etc has become quite the obstacle course.

There was an existing slab in the backyard which the previous copper had kindly left behind after removing his own garden shed, so Simon just built it on top of that.

Now we can put the bikes and garden tools in there and have some more room in the other shed. It just needs a lick of paint, some colourbond framing around the door and a door knob and its all finished.

Jonty decided he would help out and has spent the last few days in his gumboots splashing around in the puddles and everynow and again checking on Simon, chatting to him in some goobydygok kind of talk and then heading back to the puddles.

Hey I just noticed that cool quote on the side of your blog 'things turn out the best for people who make the best of the way things turn out'.
Awesome quote! Love it!
