Phew, it's over! It was the Great North Swim on Saturday and I did it despite not feeling on top form. Well, that's my excuse! I was right at the back with the old people but that still counts in my book. I'm really glad I did it, even if I was a slow coach. The weather on the day was amazing; hot and sunny and not a cloud in the sky. That definitely made heading into the cold, dark lake a bit more tempting. Dave also swum on Saturday and finished in nearly half the time it took me! Dave's Dad, John, swum on the Sunday so we went back down to Windermere to support him and take some photos of his race.
After working a few of the last weekends, I decided to take last Friday off and go shopping to the Metrocentre. I was looking for bridesmaid dresses but didn't really find many. I did find a nice grey boyfriend blazer and a floral dress for myself though! With the weekend spent in the sunny Lake District and an entire day of house sorting, cleaning, tidying and organising yesterday (it was well overdue!) I have managed to have a cheeky four days off work. Today is back to Storeyshop to make and list more cards and get my accounts up to date ready for the dreaded tax return form!
