Swimming pools and barbecues

Saturday was a very hot and sweaty day, so we decided enough was enough it was time to concentrate on the important things in life and build a swimming pool!!! The previous owners left us many barrels, some empty, some full. Most are barriques at 225 lt however one was much larger, around 500 lt so we decided to convert it. Admittedly it is more of a sitting pool, very Japanese! Unfortunately we have yet to use it as we went out that night to friends for dinner and yesterday the weather was poor, but it is hot again this week so I shall look forward to jumping in!

We also turned one of the many oil drums into a barbecue, we are waiting for Olaf to come back from his summer trip to do the big one, but this little drum is perfect for small numbers.
