First Shed Going UP

Well this past month has seen Christmas come and go and a new year begin. HAPPY 2017 TO EVERYONE. We had a lovely time and enjoyed our celebratory meal in a shed, yes no joking, it was in a shed. Table laid, shed tastefully decorated and we had music too. Coffee made by using the small camping stove. Even went posh with After Eight mints!!
