Ready to head off to the pool
After the day we had yesterday, I thought it worthwhile trying to hit the pool again. As it turned out, Bec took Princess P off to the shops. So I found myself with the two boys and most domestic duties complete “for the moment” (in a family of five that’s only ever a temporary situation).
Today we found there were no birthday parties booked. There was a minor incident when a lifeguard quite suddenly jumped into the pool with a “bomb” style dive to pull a spluttering toddler out of the pool. Which led to announcement after announcement of “if your child is under five years old and out of arms reach, you need to move closer.”
What I had, was a great afternoon with my two boys, who had a blast on the water slide and in the kids pool. Magpie even swum a few laps of the big pool, and his strokes are improving every visit.
