Another feature about Allan Ahlberg, this time be Jessica Salter in the Telegraph, presented under headed sections:
Routine I wake up before 6am, listen to the radio for a bit and then take a cup of coffee down to the shed, which is where I write. At that time of day there is no one around. At about lunchtime my motor runs out. I have a can of soup and at 1pm I go to sleep – I mean actually get undressed and go to bed. I might do a bit more in the afternoon. I’m like a dripping tap. I don’t do very much at one time but I do it seven days a week so it is constant.
Shed This is the fourth shed I have owned. I line the walls [main picture] with bits of work that children have sent me, photographs of my family, cartoons and clippings from the newspaper. They’re all yellowed now, and a snail has started chewing its way up from the bottom. But I love being surrounded by this cosy panorama as I work.
