28 days of gratitude - day 5 - the local pool and old mates that drop by
Another day of overwhelming heat. To have your own pool to cool yourself to the core would just raise that threshold from the feeling of loosing it. Photo above from dear friends pool over xmas/newyear. You guys are so LUCKY.
But thank goodness for the local pool Bowral pool has large grassy areas with lots of shade. Now I can sit as a Mum in the baby pool. Always dreamed of doing that.
Strong memories of Lawson Pool. As a primary schooler, I would walk with my sisters and brother to the pool ourselves, about 2km walk. We would spend all day there. Keeping an eye out for each other. Then we would walk home all sun kissed to be served fresh salad (basically iceberg lettuce, tinned beetroot, sliced cucumber and tomato) and devon for tea. Then water melon and vanilla ice cream for dessert.
Then if Sunday night watch Countdown and then play records , read and then off to bed.
My old boss dropped in to say Hi, this afternoon. So glad we are still friends.
Lovely to join Maxabella in her weekly thoughtful posts on being grateful
