THE POTTING SHED


Last week was apparently National Shed Week and, just for the occasion, Cuprinol announced the results of some research which not only showed that the average man spends a year of his life in his shed, but also that 77% of men have a shed. Traditionally it’s stated that one third of marriages end in divorce. By any chance are the marriages which end with divorce the same 33% of relationships where the man does not have a shed? If so, it would appear that Cuprinol has found an easy answer to domestic bliss- ladies save your marriage and get yourself some peace: buy him a shed for his birthday!

Erm... I like the idea (even if other divorce lawyers may not thank you for revealing it), but there may be a problem with the maths...

Of the 66% who own a shed 44% will not get divorced. Maybe they moved into the shed.

You're right - the figures are for purely political ends and, even excluding the sheds occupied by non-married men (estimated at 10%)which no party will admit to in these desperate times, the sums never add up or even mean anything, any more.

At first thought, I don't see the relationship between divorce and sheds but if that is the result of a research then there could be truth to it. As I reflect on this, the explanation could probably be that a man who spends time working in his shed, also works on his relationship with his wife. If this is so ladies, if your husband does not yet have a shed, buy him one. There are fabulous pre-fab storage sheds you can find from http://www.storagesheds360.com.

Actually I don't think the research does show a link; that's just my musings but I loved the subtle way you managed to comment and publicise your pre-fab storage sheds at the same time. So, completely against my house rules, I have published your comment and thank you for visiting my blog.
