Dad retired last week and this week Mum’s taken him away on holiday. This has been in the works for ages. While he’s away, us kids are going to clear out his shed, build a new workbench and buy him a load of new tools.

He’s got a couple of old Lambretta scooters that he’s been saving for his retirement but with the shed in its current state, there’s no way he’d be able to restore them. Hopefully this’ll make up for all the years of us kids borrowing, breaking and loosing his tools.

I’ll be keeping a video diary of our progress each day. Here’s day one, so you can see what it looks like before we start. Not pretty.
