Some of you may realise that I have finally turned into a roadie. Taken just on 2 years for me to admit it- but as the mountain bike has only been out twice this year- I think I can say I have gone over to the Dark Side. Unfortunately it is currently Pay back time. I got a new top rate bike last June. In August the wife got the catalogues out and started looking for her new Toy. In November she ordered it and it got parked in the Garage. Boxes and boxes of it. So in December I got the second decent Bike.
Well in March I started to get the message that I will not be riding much this year unless I start building her next Garden Construction. Foundations had to go in- Tons of soil to move- tons of Sand to bring in and we came to an agreement. Well the wife did- Unless the pool is ready by the end of May- I will not be able to ride a bike due to some Extra Marital Activities with a Cricket bat.
Still a long way to go- but the pool is up and tonight is was finally filled. Plenty yet to do- Have to run a new Power supply down to it and all the plumbing to sort out and then there will be the prettying up with a small forest being cut down to supply the Decking.
So it looks as though I won't have to book the crutches to be able to get down to the bike shed To Look at the bikes.
And to get technical- this Pool cost more than my two bikes together- will cost almost as much again to complete and I will not be using it- Water has to be bath temperature for me to get in it.
