I’m absolutely convinced that with the amount of money we spend on our swimming pool we could afford to go on a nice long holiday where Zoe could swim and get her quota of swimming for a year.
Our swimming pool is really just a blue hole where we dump money into. I can actually kick myself that we ever bought a house with a swimming pool but I suppose we were trying to buy into the South African suburban dream.
Well now Hubby has decided that he wants to redo the paving around the swimming pool, fix the peeling fibreglass, get rid of the cold water jacuzzi AND move the pump and do some homemade type of heating jobby on the pool! I’m keeping out of it and I do not want to know how much it is going to cost.
I decided and paid for the renovations on the bathroom last year so I’m just leaving him to it.
But now I have to phone swimming pool places and ask for quotes and to get them to come out.
All these places are just so laid back and matter of fact. Surely they should be chomping at the bit to get a big job like this but it just seems although everything is just too much hassle.
Surely there is not a lot of work going around at the moment, especially with the economy as it is?
Maybe I should start a swimming pool company?
Anybody out there who wants to volunteer for the job? Please just remember that Hubby is a DIFFICULT customer.
