The best way to Swim

#101in1001 – Go Swimming!

Yeah yeah – I am a little late posting this – like 6 months late (ticking them off slowly).

This may seem a bit of an easy challenge to add to my 101in1001 list but for me, it was going to be one of the hardest!

The History.

Swimming and I don’t mix, it is not just because I am  a ridiculously poor swimmer – I just don’t like it! Therefore as I rarely go near water (to swim in) I don’t feel the need to learn.

In the distant past when I was in middle school years ago we had our weekly swimming lesson at Riverside Centre, in Stafford. I hated it! It was humiliating.  I was in the ‘red’ group (the ones yet to swim a width of the toddler pool – 5m).

James Corden and Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks and James Corden on the Late Late show

 

James Corden seems to be a little like Marmite. You either love him or hate him (I love him by the way – and Marmite).

But Tom Hanks EVERYONE loves, he is probably the most versatile actor we have seen in recent years, the horrors of Saving Private Ryan, the comedy of Big, the romance of Sleepless in Seattle….. the list goes on and on and on.

Bella Hedges

Bella Hedges | Rest in Peace

A couple of weeks ago, I heard that my Auntie Bella had died, if you are going to be completely accurate she was my Great-Auntie, as she was my Grandmother’s sister.

In The Beginning

Another blog that I have been working on is In The Beginning.

This all started when my Music teacher from middle school contacted me and asked if I still had a copy of the recording we made of a school musical we did in ahem…..1981.

The sad thing was, I did have a copy, but it must have got misplaced with quite a lot of prized belongings when we emigrated.

I can still remember quite a lot of the lyrics and my teacher can remember quite a lot of the music and so we thought we would enlist help from other Riverway pupils.

The site has had lots of views but unfortuntely not many other lyrics have been added yet. If you know of any pleeeease get in touch.
