You'll be glad to hear...

The last two days I made a concerted effort, and now the swimming pool is finished, as far as it can be, until summer comes around.

I have re-grouted the shallow end of the pool and the steps out, the deep end of the pool can't be done until we are guaranteed no rain, otherwise the new grout will just be washed out.



Now I will repair the cracks in the surround, using the remainder of the hydraulic cement, unfortunately is shows up cream, but if I then paint over it with the water-proofer I used in the pump sump hole, it should not be so visible.

I now have a new use for the pool, it is my Drone Flight Training area (DFT), I keep the drones (I have three at the moment) within the confines of the pool, and once I am proficient, I will take them up to a height, until now, I have had them stored away, because the garden isn't really big enough, unless you know what you are doing, and I confess, I am still very much a novice.

Unlike other countries I have lived in, there are not the wide open public spaces to use here...unless you own them, even the Sports grounds are locked up when not in use.
