In summer, and especially in the school holidays, my kids constantly nag me to take them swimming by granny and it frustrated me terribly! Colin was away last week and I decided, in my wisdom, to go out and buy a pool. The kids were very excited and we ended up coming home with a pool, pump (to blow up the pool edge) and floater. If Robyn and Andrew had their way we would also have added all the toys that can be used in the pool!
Colin was very upset with me when he found out what I did, but fortunately the pool is still there and the kids are having a great time! No more nagging to go visit grannies pool! So far the water has been to cold for me to go in, but I am sure that with time I will have my first dip.
