The garden shed can be seen as an old mans thing to some of the youngsters of today where they possibly remembered their grandfather disappearing down the garden or up to the allotment to some mysterious place. As a child this was exciting but as they got older it was a little 'uncool' (this probably shows my age) so they distanced them selves from this activity, which is a shame. Nowadays garden summerhouses are the thing!
I am at the moment enjoying time with my grandson, Daniel, who is 2¾ and he is a joy to be with. Seeing his character develop each time I see him it marvellous. When we are in the garden together the way he looks at me whilst we spend time together is so magical. He likes to go in my garden shed and take a look at what's in there but only under my guidance.
Until a few weeks ago it was impossible to get into my shed because of all the stuff (items various - as my wife would say) in there so he had to look in through the shed door. I've now cleared it out and there is space inside to get in and Daniel took great delight in hiding under the bench in there. Hopefully he will remember these times all his life and maybe, just maybe, he will not bow to peer pressure as he gets older. I do think he will as the garden shed is fascinating for him. I suppose being in the garden sheds business might make it a little different to most children.
Even at an earlier age he was fascinated by garden sheds even then. I remember collecting him for the day and he was a little unsure of himself and a little grizzly to start with. As there was a garden centre a little away from his home, which had some donkeys as an attraction for children, we decided to stop off in there. I pulled up in front of the small field where the donkeys lived and got Daniel out of the car.
Carefully holding his hand, as this was the car park for the garden centre, I got him out and took him over to see the donkeys. He appeared to like them but his attention kept drifting towards the display of garden sheds, a little like the garden summer houses from 1st Choice, beyond the car park. I decided, perhaps, he might like to take a look so headed over to the sheds. When we got there Daniel's face lit up. He started to run in and out of the garden sheds in turn, opening and closing the doors, with a big beaming smile on his face.
These were basic straight forward garden sheds, not playhouses, just fully 'bog standard' sheds but he loved them. I then know he must be his father's son and granddad's grandson, not that there was any doubt. This just goes to show how much children take in from their upbringing.
A little while later at the 1st Choice Leisure Buildings display site near Guildford he road tested their new range of children's playhouses. In and out of the playhouses, up the steps and down the slides. Opening and closing the windows, child safe perspex - of course - and generally doing what all your children do best, and that is to use their imagination.
Besides the fun the children have exploring their new world the sheer joy they bring to their parents and grand parents is beyond words, as any parent or grandparent will confirm. It's hard to imagine life without this little soul and with his sister, Rebecca, as she gets a little older I'm sure she will want to be joining in as well. Can't wait!
