Keeping waterlogged.

A morning spent waiting for a meeting that didn’t happen in connection with one of the estates I am lending a hand on, while I whiled the time away with more jungle gym construction for a while. Then I was off to watch J’s very first Swimming Squad session. In spite of having done swimming during a sport period in the morning, she was raring to go.

It was an hour well spent. She was showing off a bit by overtaking some of the swimmers on every length, and was soaking in some good periods of  instruction and demonstration.

R, with green cap, is in mid-dive far left. That corner contains all the new Grade 1 Squad members.


After her swimming we waited for her sister to finish her own squad training at a nearby Olympic pool. Then as soon as we got home to drop R off, J and I were heading out again, this time to J’s Swimming School lesson. I was amazed that after all the swimming she had done today, she applied herself with vigour and obviously enjoyed herself.

Poor Younger Daughter seems to have a really nasty bug so I’ll probably have to do the to-school run tomorrow for grandkids and two neighbours. Then, R is in an inter-school gala in the afternoon, so I’ll have to be there and also do transporting home of course. Phew!

  1. Seems Les’s work is never done! Well done J for all your hard efforts and for making Grandfather Les very proud.


  2. I’d love an outdoor swim!
    Having just started recovering after a bad cold I have every sympathy with your daughter.


  3. Hope Younger Daughter improves quickly

    Both seem to be chips off your block, Les! Unlimited energy. Paul was asking after you yesterday-is it possible to share your blog via email? His email address

  6. I haven’t been around in a while, but I’m glad to see you’re doing well, and keeping busy. My oldest sons baby girl is just turning one, so I’m enjoying every moment as a grandfather.. Take care. P.S. I finally got that book, I’ve been working on completed. Now it’s time to move to the next one.
