7.1

This morning Emma and I went for a swim at Vazon at 7am. We were at least an hour off high tide but the tide was due to be 9.7m so enormous. I’m a pretty good swimmer but there was a huge swell and as I tried to get in off the slip a bit wave caught me, tipped me off my feet and deposited me like a giant beached whale half way up the side of the slipway. I have granite rash on the top of my thigh and my elbow and my dignity shattered.

It was so warm in though and I was desperate to have a swim so we drove to Cobo for a quick dip. It was still swelly but much safer.

Phew. We survived. Must be careful though. Mother nature is powerful.

Lockdown 2.0 – Day 24

The Little Miss woke up with a large ginger cat on her chest and then we had a reasonably positive morning of home-schooling – although the kids need us to be with them all the time – they just don’t seem to be able to work independently!

It was a lovely day and my crazy friend Emma convinced me that it was a good idea to go for a swim. I mean, seriously, it is February!! I have bought both of us some fabulous swimming caps (she wanted one like the Blur album!) so we decided to give them their maiden voyage. I have to admit they were lovely and snuggly and certainly made at least part of our bodies feel warmer.

We went to Vazon and with one husband and four children (all in wetsuits) we headed into the sea. It was a long walk to the sea as it was low tide and the waves were much bigger and more exciting than we expected. It was absolutely bloody freezing… the first thing one notices is just how freezing ones vagina gets. Let’s be honest – vag freeze is a real thing! Like troopers (or fools) we waded in and did half a dozen strokes before getting out, and then then going straight back in again. It was much warmer the second time around.

It was brilliant. I have to admit that it was exhilarating and I may be convinced to go in again before the end of this week.

Swimming

The children go swimming twice a week and they are doing absolutely brilliantly.

Whereas there was a time we struggled to get them into the pool – there was one noticeable period of 6 weeks where The Little Mister just wailed on the side of the pool – they now happily toddle off on their own.

I am so proud of them.

Day 318

Swimming superstar!Today my amazing boy collected his 25m badge. I am so proud of him and he has worked hard to get this award.

He loves swimming, although he especially loves swimming under the water, so finally achieving his badge is massive.

I am lucky to have this feisty wonderful boy in my life.

Day 278

SwimarathonI am very proud of my boy today. He took part in his first ever Swimarathon – he and some others from the swim school swam lengths of the little pool for an hour and it was all counted towards the final distance count.

He is especially proud of his medal.

Day 259

Little swimmerNot only has she started a new school but The Little Miss has also moved up into the next swimming group.

I love seeing her with her cap and her goggles although she often doesn’t even wear the goggles over her eyes, just as an accessory on top of her head!

Little Fishy

Today The Little Mister took part in a sponsored swim at school. I love the fact that every single pupil was encouraged to take part. He did brilliantly and managed to complete 18 widths. I am such a proud Mummy!
