Default SWA to Garden Shed

Hello All

I currently have my garden dug up being landscaped and i am thinking of putting in some armoured cable to a shed. The shed is approx 25m from the house but another 25m to the front of the house where the CU is.

I am wanting to put in a small CU in the shed with a 32A power circuit and a 5A lighting circuit.

Can anyone tell me what size cable i should be using and also what size breaker will i need on the main house CU?

Does anyone know of where to get SWA cheap?

Also, any thoughts on what i should do for outside lighting? I will have a block paved path around the garden but it will obviously require much more cable!
