The Surprise!

Good Evening! How are you all doing?

I'm excited.

For about a month now we have been conjuring up a plan.

A plan meaning that this weekend is going to be jam packed with productivity!

Ian's parents are away for a while so as a surprise we are buying a new shed and tidying up their 'Veg patch' end of the garden. Ian is taking a few days off to get the old sheds down, level out the lands and to generally clear the area.

On Saturday his whole family are coming over to help. Weeding needs to be done. Wood chip needs to be shoveled. Mugs of Tea need to be made. The new shed has to go up. It's going to be a lot of hard but fun work!

It's been awfully hard keeping it a secret. It seems to be on the tip of my tongue constantly and the shed company accidentally phoned the house phone instead of Ian's mobile. Luckily we got away with it as they are in another country and seem blissfully unaware.

The only thing that can get in our way is the deliveries not turning up on time...or not at all. The wood chip didn't turn up today (apparently they were stuck in traffic)...Ahh...the joys of waiting in for a delivery.

We will be taking lots of pictures so we can show his parents what we did (and of course all of you).

Wish us luck!
