Making a splash

We visited our new city swimming pool this morning. During it's first week it only costs 5p per person to swim. It has received a lot of hype in the local press but at the risk of sounding like a whinger I'm going to say it was awful - even at the bargain price of 5p! After finally managing to get through a ridiculous bar coded barrier system we finally arrived in a freezing cold pool where the shallowest area was 0.8 metres - not much good for weeny people!

Back at home we soaked up the sunshine while splashing in our own pool - a lot less stressful.

While the children splashed I cut, blanched a froze a mountain of broccoli. The patch looks quite bare now but I've lots of sprouting broccoli seedlings coming on which will soon take the place of what was cut today.

Oh, I almost forgot to say, we managed to squeeze in a bit of work on fractions and plurals in between splashes. Plodding along, getting where we need to be in true tortoise fashion right now. Just right for sunny days!
