Forgot to tell you… at the end of that horror day (paint/fire etc), I stood on one of my director’s chairs to force the glory vine back onto the pergola and the seat split and I twisted my ankle (not badly).
But the good news is I confronted my pool guy today about taking my chlorinator in for testing (when I didn’t ask for it), giving me a quote for an EXORBITANT amount of money – the part a lot cheaper when I checked on the internet – and leaving my pool without any chlorine on the hottest weekend of the season.
To quote our Premier, on Thursday evening I was “incandescent with rage”.
My pool is now green but the chlorinator is back – sure not working brilliantly, but back – and they threw in some extra chlorine as well.
Ahhhhh. That feels better now.
