Excavating my shedPosted: September 18, 2013
When we had some building work done ten years ago I ‘temporarily’ moved some of my wargaming stuff into the shed, and other than the occasional sortie inside to find something, the shed has remained unopened ever since. Over the years the laurel bushes have grown … and grown … and grown! In fact they had grown so much that the shed had eventually disappeared from view … until today.
Over the past week my wife and I have been doing some much needed gardening, including some drastic pruning of the laurel bushes. Thanks to the loan of heavy-duty garden shredder from my brother, we have managed to chop the pruned branches into a lot of very tiny pieces, which are currently awaiting disposal. I finally managed to open the shed door this morning … and discovered that what I thought was a few crates full of stuff was actually twenty crates full.
A cursory glance inside the crates that were closest to door seemed to indicate that most of the contents were intact, if a little dirty. A proper sort out will have to wait until the rest of the garden is tidied up, a job that will probably take another week, weather permitting. As I have only the vaguest memories of what I put into the crates, investigating their contents could be a very interesting exercise.
