no sun is getting through this get up

I couldn’t imagine a holiday without a swimming pool, especially when there are children involved, many many hours can be used up splashing around. Right from the first holiday First Born and Smalls loved being in the pool, their first requests in the mornings were “can we go in the pool?” there was no need for breakfast, who needed food when you can swim around the same pool of water for the next 5 hours. 

Unfortunately First Born is now to grown up too go on holiday with his family and I thought with Smalls being a teenager she might get bored of the swimming pool, but nope she was the keenest out of everyone, there was some sulking when people had to get out of the water as they were looking prune-like and she couldn’t have been happier when they had a midnight swim. And Golden Boy, well he loved it, by the end of the week he was bobbing around quite happily, those little legs were working so hard – there were a couple of incidents when we had taken his arm bands off and he didn’t realise without them he would sink, that was a bit of a shock for him but didn’t put him off.

With the sea just down the road we did make ourselves visit the beach – it just seems like hard work when there is a pool so close – and although there was apprehension at first they all went in – I paddled to my knees and then watched them anxiously take my children too far out to sea…

that is far enough for my liking
