    Here is the before, it's largely just wasted space



    It's pretty much finished, we are going to wait until spring to do the planting so it looks a bit bare at the moment, but it's a pond.

    There is a pile of rotting wood to attract insects and a little stone ramp into the pond, we are determined to get frogs back

    Cheers Grant.

    It was quite rewarding to do, the biggest issue was what to do with the soil I was digging out, it ended up smaller than I was intending purely for that reason. It will be nice to get stuck into it again when we put pond reeds in it and plant the rockery.

    Plus, an other positive to come out of it was the realisation of how seriously unfit I have become since sitting at a desk for 4 years, so since the pond was built I have lost a stone, a very long way to go but it's a good start

    Bloody right it does, most rewarding exercise there is.

    It was a shameful eye opener, I was working for 10 mins then sitting down for 10 to recover, took twice as long as it should have

    My Dad was a builder before retiring, I've been on the wrong end of too many jobs like that, always been strong and fit whatever size I was, so this was a really shameful eye opener

    Amen to that.

    Things can strike you down at any time, whether you are fit or not. You can jog, go to the gym, diet etc but you can still get something nasty happen out of the blue.

    A good friend was rushed to Hospital, a couple of weeks ago, with a ruptured bowel. She was fit and healthy, liked to walk, didn't drink and ate sensibly, yet this happened. She is in a poor state, in an induced coma for 3 days, has a bag fitted and a few days ago, one of her lungs partially collapsed. God willing, she will pull through but what a shock.

    Make the most of the time you have because you don't know what's around the corner.
