Fancy a dip?

We've certainly had a busy time since we moved into our new house in April.

Fencing, driveways, paths, retaining walls, landscaping and within the past two weeks our patio was laid. We've hardly had a chance to catch our breath and enjoy what we have. I'm not complaining, but I'm really looking forward to being able to just sit in the garden with a cold one and think "job done". Each completed job in the garden seems to mean that another one needs starting. We have no plants and very little turf at the moment.

It's a good feeling though to know that we're rapidly reclaiming the muddy building site that we inherited a few months ago. With thanks to our very generous family, 6 weeks ago we applied for planning permission for a pool. And guess what? It's in.

Check out the superb time-lapse movie Gina put together of of the pool being dug out and delivered today.

So, is that it for the pool? Can I relax now? Of course not, now we have to install pool fencing, tile the surround, put a path towards it and perhaps some steps. Can anyone lend me a fiver?

Who knows, maybe I'll get that cold one sometime soon, maybe with my toes dipped in the water.
