On Sunday we went to the Nuffield Health gym in Yeovil on a free trial to try out the pool – mainly because the big M’s a wuss and thinks the Crewkerne and Yeovil leisure centre pools are too cold.

The main draw was the jacuzzi. The big m and I made a beeline for it pretty much immediately. And whilst not a patch on the ones in Hong Kong it was lovely and warm and bubbly. Just as we got settled and I was content catching the bubbles I was told I had to get out. Boo – apparently you have to be over 16 to use it. Rubbish rule! The pool was ok (and indeed significantly warmer than the aforementioned) but I don’t think we’ll be becoming members as all I wanted to do was swim in the jacuz! Never mind, only another 14 years to go.


One little wilfred went swimming one day

We’re off to Hong Kong in a few days so I decided I needed to polish up my swimming skills. Not quite as glamorous as the pools I will be gracing with my presence, we took a trip to Goldenstones pool in Yeovil. It was a touch chilly but that didn’t stop me. I was front crawling my way round the training pool for 45 minutes. It helped that they provided ducks and balls (probably my 2 favourite things) to play with.
