Sunday 7th Nov

It looks quite daunting doesn't it!
This is the pool - a professional 'man with digger' came to do the job yesterday - the rest is up to us! The digger did a really excellent job and coped well with the trauma of breaking an underground water pipe taking water to the farm below us. However all was dealt with efficiently and with good humour. The water board came out and fixed the pipe, we moved the pool a metre to the right - and met another of our neighbours - the man from the farm below!!
So now all we need to do is install the structure - easy!
Today we started to fill in the ditch which will take the water pipe and electricity cables - and got very muddy and wet in the process as the weather has turned again-but its all good fun and the pool will be worth it in the end!!

  1. This is a most impressive hole in the ground! Thank heavens for the man-with-digger! I can't imagine how long it would have taken to dig by hand.
    It sounds like you've got a few weeks of wet, muddy 'fun' ahead of you - fingers crossed that it doesn't turn frosty too soon.
    Good luck!
