Terry's Man Cave

The Coastguard Station hosepipe and the electricity reel both went missing the other day and we've been trying to figure out where they went. Given we are a trained Search Team it shouldn't be too difficult.

Had they been stolen? - probably not.

Had they been lost? - probably not.

Had a member of the team borrowed them ? - No they would have said (unless that is they were undertaking very special top secret project - such a secret project that they wouldn't even tell the team about - the most secret thing ever).

Anyway, after many texts and an hours' wait the culprit finally 'coughed'.

It was none other than Coastguard of the year - ten year old Terry Edmunds - seen here with Ben Fogle.

Apparently he had needed the hosepipe to swish out his back yard as part of 'Operation Man Cave'.

Yes Terry has spent the weekend creating a Man Cave! 

man cave[1][2] or manspace,[3] is a male sanctuary,[4] such as a specially equipped garage,[5] spare bedroom,[4] media room,[6] den,[7] or basement.[7][8] It is a metaphor describing a room inside the house[9] where "guys can do as they please" without fear of upsetting any female sensibility about house decor or design.[10] Paula Aymer of Tufts University calls it the "last bastion of masculinity".[10]
While a wife may have substantial authority over a whole house in terms of design and decoration, she generally has no say about what gets "mounted on the walls" of a man's personal space.[10] Since it may be accepted that a woman has input on the decoration of the rest of the house, a man cave or man space is in some sense a reaction to feminine domestic power.[10]

Chez Edmunds - MAN CAVE! (love the pansies)
