Yes Folks, it's Tuesday night again and if you've read my Blog so far, you'll know Tuesday night is Aquafit night.
So I promised some photos of the maybe not so posh private public swimming pool.
This is the entrance to the lady's driveway.
The poolhouse is the roof to the right and you get to it through the arched gateway you can see in the joining wall.
Once you go through the gateway she has a lovely garden area and this is the poolhouse itself, set up on a patio area.
The pool is relatively small by leisure centre standards but it still manages to go very deep in the deep end. I only found out that there were lessons here because one of the Mums at Taekwondo told me. If I was the owner I'd be in this pool all day, but I suppose running swimming classes pays for it's upkeep.
This is my view from in the pool, during the class, minus the instructor as she was too shy to be in the shot! There have been as many as 7 people in the class, but normally it's 3-4 of us. Tonight, just myself and a young girl who is a Primary School teacher. One night it was just me and the teacher.
It is so hot and humid in here that it was warm enough to have the pool doors open tonight. However, that is the main reason why I can't get dry afterwards. You can see how steamy the windows are.
So was I brave enough to drive the 15 minutes home in my costume and dressing gown?
Oh YES I WAS!
Oh My Goodness, I've never done anything like that before. I must admit I did check I had enough petrol before I left tonight. I did pass a Police car and kept to every speed limit and made it back safely to my own front door!
What a Hoot!
While we're on the subject of water:-
It Never Rains, but It Pours
This is a photo from my back garden. The red brick house is mine and the pebbledashed house is next-door.
Now while I don't mind living so close to my nearest neighbours, there is supposed to be a divide between our gardens. During the high winds and rain on Sunday our fence blew down.
The rest of the fence behind the rabbit hutch and up is also broken although still standing. The cost we have been quoted today for these 7 fence panels to be replaced? £600. Oh boy! I'm still reeling. Still, the part for my oven arrived today, so hopefully that will be fixed tomorrow.

Just dreading what's coming next. They do come in threes don't they?
