Still, the pool is looking great, and has had some use, and it now has some lovely decking down one side.

We have also had a visit from Alex and the lovely Sarah....
If arriving a couple of weeks before the rest of the family was a ploy to get the best room, it didn't work, as they ended up on the bed settee, as we were full of paying guests. It was lovely to see you both, and we hope you will be back before too long - good luck with the exam Alex.
We have also had a visit from Hugh's long-lost uni friend, Dave, now living in California.
He also had to sleep on the bed settee, but still provided plenty of wine to go with the reminiscences and cooked us a lovely meal! We look forward to seeing him again - next time with wife Beth.
We have been noticing visitors of a different kind in the garden too....
