Christmas is over and the decorations must come down. Sue takes Barbie and Ken off the cubicle doors for another year.
They sat by the pool edge to watch us swim. Say what you like about Ken he's been outdoors in all weathers wearing just a sprig of tinsle for the past few weeks.
It was a cool clear morning with a light frost burning off in the morning sun. Vince was already in the water when I arrived. I managed six lengths today the water was pretty nippy, just under 5ºC accoring to David.
The sloping steps have been taped off for the last couple of days since they developed a rather unsafe wobble. These are the easiest steps for getting in and out of the water, especially when your limbs are frozen. I hope they fix them soon.
