Shed working and painting

About Lizintheshed…….

2010: I write. That’s what I do.  I write in a pokey little room at the front of the house.  People drive past and wave.  I watch the tractors.  I fall over the piles of paper on the floor.  I need more space.  So I am a woman in search of a shed.

2012: I write. I paint. I live in my shed. I don’t blog – 2 years/4 posts. I will blog. It won’t be about getting a shed. It will be about words and pictures. Watch this space!

2015: I paint. I write. I blog more regularly. I tweet. I facebook. I get distracted. I am meant to be painting.

2019: I paint, I teach, I write. I Instagram, I Facebook, I tweet (occasionally). I’m not in the shed much, because I’ve take over the conservatory too – ha, ha, ha.

2020: Hmmm, global pandemic, didn’t see that coming. So back in the shed and Zooming around the world. Set-up online courses at Selling via Facebook and seeing how the new world is looking

2021: More of the same, I reckon, but I am doing lots on YouTube too… take a look at
