By later in the afternoon on Christmas Day it was decided that the water was clear enough and all the correct pH and chlorine etc boxes had been ticked so the children were let loose. First in was Catriona who had been dangling on the edge all day.

After that it was a free for all for several hours. I have to admit that although the children said that it was warm (and it felt warm when I put my toes in) I chickened out and availed myself of the spa (usually called a hot tub here) instead. I'll go into the pool when the surrounds are all finished - or the weather heats up too much, whichever comes first.

|The spa/hot tub - bliss.|
