The tarpaulin did not do much to stop the weeds!
This area is staying as it is-the cats love to sit here and watch me work. I need to fix the guttering on the shed-well really I need a new shed but that will have to wait. In a dream world I would like a little studio up there-it would have big windows, be warm and cosy and spider free, and would have running water, electricity, and wireless internet! Maybe in a few years time!
