Before

Pile one. There is a slightly smaller one the other side of the decking.
Broken corrugated plastic roof. Pointless and broken shelf.
Very rotten wood. On the other side was a concrete slab which is now a step to the shed. It had trapped all the moisture, caused some crossness and grunting when it was removed, and housed a whole city of snails on its back.
The drain pipe had been like this for so long that it had inscribed an arc in the paint.
Cassie testing out the useful cardboard path. It saved a slight amount of mess indoors, though it is still a tip in here-blogging is better than tackling it! I have done most of the outside mess-it has gone to the tip, and will sort out the piles tomorrow. The shed looks great. My brother is so good at all that sort of thing. Will show you tomorrow!

The kitty tracks made me smile. Best wishes with the big project. Yes, and blogging is a great way to procrastinate or, rather--prioritize.

Sarah, it's nice to see other's messes! Thank you! I wonder if Cassie thinks the path was put down just for her? Most likely!

Just catching up - haven't had much blog reading time this past week! You have been busy!! I love your still life - I have a cardboard box lined with fabric which I use for similar photos - it is actually a patchwork fabric - it is a soft mottled grey, and makes a really good background.
