Hello online friends! What a hectic few days I've had (spending quality time with the hubby) and with no chance to get online and blog or peruse other people's beautiful blogs. But with the girls visiting their grandparents in NZ - on their own for the first time (!) - I am hoping to be able to get back into it.
And I'm very pleased to finally be able to say that the pool has now been formed and the concrete poured. I have to show you photos of course, even though it is highly uninspiring (unlike the image above).
As you can see it is kind of a cross between a lap pool and a normal pool - narrower and shallower at one end, getting wider and deeper at the other. Semi-established Lilly pilly native trees will line the eastern side, bordering our neighbours and timber decking will form the surround. While we were limited by space and the geography of the land and there isn't a huge amount of area around it, there is enough to put a couple of sun loungers at the narrower end.
But, hey, it's a pool! We've never owned a pool before so we can't wait to be able to jump in and cool off during the heat of a Sydney summer.
