Escaping child care duties
When I first became a father and i asked my own father for advice on being a new dad he said “Son, get yourself a shed.” At the time i found this strange because we didn’t have a garden. Its taken me a while to understand what he meant, but now I realise that what he was hinting at was that sometimes parenting can be too much and you need somewhere to escape to. We still don’t have a garden but I make do with the next best thing – locking myself in the loo and pretending I have constipation. Our bathroom is my shed.
