Wednesday, 5:30am: 18c, sunny – the day begins.

No, not Scarlett, she’s tucked up in bed, sound asleep. We have four burly pool builders rocking onto site at 5:30 in the morning, for no apparent reason. Law here says that you can’t start work until 7:00am, so what the hell are they doing here?

I got up and dressed and told them not to start until 7:00am, next time I look, they’ve gone. Were they ever really there?

Since I’m up anyway, I start cabling the electrical socket for the pool filter, seems that no matter what time you go under a house, it’s always disgusting!

Looking forward to cycling to work at 7:30am, beautiful Spring day!

Pool today, note the lack of builders!
