Swimming – Tuesday 25th June 2019


It’s my swimming lesson today and I’m really looking forward to it. It’s so funny looking back to think there was a time I was scared of water. When I remember back to the boating holiday we had years ago when I wouldn’t even get on the boat if I could see the water between the bank and the boat, it’s unbelievable. Now I don’t exactly get in of my own accord, but I do like going and I know it does me good. I’m really lucky that our Mistress made me go every week and encouraged me to get over my phobia. I probably wouldn’t be here now if she hadn’t. Shadow’s pleased that she can come today too. She says she missed it last week. I prefer going with her than Aristotle so I’m pleased too.

Not sitting still

I can sit still for hours. Our Mistress it seems can’t. I’m thinking maybe I should be giving her some lessons. I suppose if one of us could run around looking after her the way she does for us then it might be a little easier. I might just ask her to sit with me outside for a while just as a way to get her to stop. It’s no good trying to get Wilma to help with that one as she prefers running around to sitting still. Actually, when I think about it, they are really very similar. Maybe that’s why they miss each other so much when they’re apart.

I think it might be summer

Ok, so there is likely to be rain today, but at least it’s a lot warmer than it has been. Our Mistress has told me that we have sunshine forecast for the next few days so I’m looking forward to the feeling of sun on my fur. There is a fine dividing line between enjoying the warmth and getting too hot, but it does feel nice to feel sunshine. It also makes my legs easier so that’s appreciated too.

Have a lovely Tuesday
