Setting up a garden office may have ruined my bank balance but it did wonders for my ego
Giving up my outside office and relocating to the bottom of the garden was supposed to save money, but it hasn’t worked out that way, mainly because I decided to oversee its construction myself. I imported the materials to build the “cabin” from a German company I found on the internet. It didn’t occur to me until a lorry pulled up outside and deposited an enormous flatpack on my doorstep that the instructions would be in German. In the end, my mother-in-law found a man in Suffolk who’d built one before and dispatched him to Acton in his pick-up truck.
