Every woman should have a shed

Every woman should have a shed – in which to put her man. Men are at their best when viewed from a distance. If I lean out of my study window now I can see mine: he's in there pottering, fixing something. The doors of his shed are flung wide to take in the last of the afternoon sun, and he's listening to the news on Radio 4. He’ll be chuntering or expostulating or ranting about what he’s just heard. And I don’t have to listen. I can get on with my writing. Bliss.

You've never said a truer word (and you've said quite a few)
