Saturday Pool Compilation

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

So once again the blog looks a bit strange with so many tweets, and as I was about to embed the linked to pictures, I thought I might as well compile all the words and photos into one post.
So, on Friday we went to Metro to buy a new paddling pool for Tim and Anna. The old one was a series of inflatable rings, which unfortunately had a couple of punctures. The new one is 3 metres in diameter, and made up of poles, joints and a big plastic canvas. It takes around 4400 litres of water to fill up the pool, and the ground it sits upon is not level, so we are hoping that it doesn’t cause problems.
On the Saturday, which was Irina’s Dad’s birthday, the pool was set up, and filled up. Tim, Anna and Irina all seemed to enjoy their time in it. After I had gone over to Interhouse’s office to teach a couple of English lessons, I returned to Chubary and joined the family and friends that had since arrived to start the birthday celebrations.

Father’s Day 2012

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

Happy Father’s Day to all the Daddys out there! I had a lovely huge card from Anna & Tim, a relaxing couple of little snoozes, and a few drinks. Nice to chill out :)
The paddling pool got it’s 1st outing this year. Tim & Anna seem to be enjoying it. It was also Muska’s first weekend outside of the in-laws’ house!
This is another compilation post culled from a couple of tweets, to try and balance things out a little on the front page.
