Goodbye Mr Pool #Prose4T

By | September 6, 2013

It’s September, the children are back at school and the News now has talk of energy prices, dropping temperatures and (yes, it’s 16 weeks away) Christmas.

Today’s #Prose4T is about something that T and D have really enjoyed this summer, our frame pool, I’m letting the water out feeling a bit nostalgic this morning:

Goodbye Mr Pool #Prose4T
Goodbye Mr Pool #Prose4T

Goodbye for a while, Mr Pool, your water’s turning green. It’s time to recycle all that water and give you a good clean.

We’ve had some fun, all of us, splashing and making waves. You’ve provided exercise, occupation and refreshment in those hot, summer days.

Time to take the air out too of the do-nuts, the inflatable balls and the banana (!). We’ve played battleships, competitive games and splashing, it’s all been a mini nirvana.

Pack you all away, in the funny purple shed, until next April or May. If the frost doesn’t get to you, we’ll see you next year, ready for that first warm day.
