  • Swimming Lesson #51

    I’m certainly getting better. Today for my warm up I swam two laps of freestyle without stopping, and I managed to do a length of the pool of breaststroke with only nine kicks, so my gliding is improving too.  My backstroke is still a bit erratic, in that I don’t excel at swimming in a […]

  • Swimming Lesson #2

    I went back to Swish for my second lesson. After the first one, my neck had been sore from pulling my head out of the water to breathe, and I was utterly exhausted. Similar today.

  • Quiet night in

    My wife had her Zumba class this evening, which meant I couldn’t go to the track. Instead, I gave the girls their baths and then put Destroyer to bed. “No!” she protested grumpily every time I tried to get her to lie down, demanding I read her Matilda’s Cat, a book with a great paucity […]

    There was a party in the office today thrown by my American colleagues, to celebrate the 4th of July. It was very nice of everyone to buy some kegs of beer but all the same, it was odd that they were celebrating my wife’s birthday. I mean, some of them hardly know her, and it’s […]
