This is what we have been mostly doing the last few days!! The sun has arrived, and we got the paddling pool out of the attic, and since then the kids have not been able to keep out of it, even before breakfast!!! We have rigged up a water slide and Laurie in particular loves going down at speed (they have discovered it is fastest with no clothes on but I am drawing the line at photographing that lol) though he looks a bit scared in the above picture, this is due to the icy cold water!!!
We had severe hosepipe issues before the pool was filled, including a flooded kitchen (twice) when our neighbour suggested we connect the pipe directly to the mains where the washer usually goes (uh-oh) and then we tried to make do without proper tap attachments onto the kitchen sink(uh-oh). We got there in the end though.
And it was all worth it, they will tell you!!
