Pretty v Practical

Being responsible for my children's well being whilst renovating our 'forever' home is a challenge at the best of times. There are all sorts of hazards that can induce a trip to the emergency, and it doesn't stop when the tool belt is put away. My current conundrum is the ongoing safety of my kiddies vs the beauty of my backyard!

With the inside liveable we are now focussing on getting our backyard finished by Christmas, and that starts with pool headers (followed by concrete, decking, reticulation, soak-wells, lawn, landscaping and painting... this list goes on).

I want a shiny, luxurious, black granite with a polished, square edge – a good mum would opt for a non-slip, cool to touch, bevel edge pool header. I am torn, I want to be a good, safety conscience mum, but want the pretty, hot and unsafe one sooo bad!

 If I go and do a first aid course in burns and head wounds does it make it ok?
