Belated Blog Birthday Bulletin

And speaking of birthdays, this blog was two on 20 August!
We were away on holiday at the time, but I didn't want to let the anniversary pass by completely unmarked.

Water Baby

Today our middle daughter is 21. Happy Birthday Evie!!

Eve's always been a keen swimmer, maybe it's because we used to go to the pool several times a week when she was little. Here she is with Jeanette, who looked after her when we were at work. Jeanette was also a big fan of swimming, probably still is. 

In this photo three-year-old Eve is looking very pleased with herself because she's just passed her 25 metre badge! For some reason, a reporter from the local paper happened to be at the pool, so Jeanette dived in and set up a photo opportunity!

Many Happy Returns Eve!! Let the partying commence!

Bathing Belles

Two weeks since I was in the pool, too many other things like decorating the kitchen occupying my time. Anyway, holiday soon, so hopefully I'll be in the sea or outdoor pool every day to get me back in the swim, as it were.
And this new costume - Speedo Claudezine Luxe* - will ease the transition back to water-based activity......There's so much more to a swimsuit than just a scrap of  fabric......

Bathing is a sport
Enjoyed by great and small
In suits of any sort
Though better none at all
