January 9. Day 9. Turning up the heat
It may have been one of the hottest days of the year and large tracks of the country may, unfortunately, be threatened by bush fire but no-one was being burned at the stake at our abode.
They say there's a fine line between pleasure and pain and nowhere is that more true than when it comes to the noise erupting from our swimming pool on a hot summer's afternoon but I can assure you the children were shrieking in delight. They do that. Loud and proud.
If you want to ensure school holiday fun, just add wate. It may surprise you to learn that backflips - at least those of the physical kind - are not a specialty of mine. Therefore I am not in a position to know whether it is physically possible to complete them without the noise generated today. I can only assume not. In any event, I'm not complaining as they were having fun and I promise no-one was getting hurt.This is my nephew Connor tackling the heat head on.
