My mornings now consist of a solid 20 mins of pool maintenance. Remove the cover and check the pH. Put the hose on to fill it up and use the net to fish out any bits. The water clarity tells me the chlorine tablets are working. I've clearly smashed my new role as pool maintenance director! Yeah!
My daughter has tested positive for covid. So we have been unable to go to Newquay, Cornwall and Illfracoombe, North Devon as planned for our 10 days in the sun, sea and surfing. None of us have symptoms luckily, and we are making the most of our sunny holidays in the back garden, in Chadderton, Oldham, Greater Manchester. Where for once it is not hammering it down and for that we are very grateful.
