I was getting fed up of working at my desk and looking out the window to see the dump of a garden we inherited with this house. So, I took some time off, got lucky with the weather, and took up the decking that covered almost the entire garden. Disappointingly I found only concrete and spiders underneath – no treasure, but at least no bodies either.
I’ve since recycled the deck boards, cutting them and making planters, a new deck and pergola.
I dodged one shower and one massive spider which inspired me to write a 100 word story. It has been published on the CaféLit site, here.
I must get rid of the shed.
