On Saturday came lots of swimming,
But this time no water was brimming;
At nine and at twelve
All else had to shelve
Both prizegivings not to be dimming. 

Young R ‘Silver Badge’ has attained,
Her sister her ‘Tadpole’ has gained,
And came badges for each
For distance they reach:
At eight hundred; ten; they have strained! 

While R got a trophy as well;
Though this time she failed to excel
At all of the races,
No sort of disgrace is:
‘Good Spirit Award’ much can tell!

Among other things undertaken were the collection of a few Dracaenas - this is the first of two big loads! And, yes, that is my own trusty MB, once again increasingly brought into service after that annoying period of crutches and stuff.

  1. Well done to your two swimming stars! J looks like areal charmer, with that gorgeous smile. I wonder what was distracting R’s attention away from the camera. 😕
