As I type out this entry a section of vitreous stove pipe as just arrived so adding that to a section of flame resistant pipe I bought for £6.99 at Wickes last night and a cowl I was fortunate enough to womble I should be able to install the stove in the next few weeks.
With regards to the other tasks on my list one of the new locks I fitted to the shed bust last night in the sense that the key snapped in the lock so I've bought a triple pack of locks last night that all use the same key to help simplify the keyring. I have however brought the gravel sacks home and I am slowly washing them and drying them out to reuse later on .

Well it seems I have been very distracted indeed . From April 9th - 11th I was laying foundations for the new shed which arrived in the afternoon of the 11th .
On the 12th I painted the exterior of the shed whilst also attaching locks on the door and an internal wall cupboard.
I've spent too many days now looking for stove pipes and getting beaten at the last minute on Ebay.
Lots of ideas floating around my head I really need to focus and get on top of it also that I can begin the growing process.
