Next step, bronze swimming certificate

It’s a big day. At our baby swimming lesson this morning (level 5…), Minnie did her first real solo swimming. She’s been propelling herself around for a little while, splashing her arms and legs enthusiastically, but today was the first occasion she kept her head above the water unaided. For several strokes.

I am, unsurprisingly, inordinately proud. Next step, bronze swimming certificate? Well… maybe not.

But perhaps a new swimming costume for our Caribbean cruise in November. This cute spot print swimsuit is on sale at House of Fraser, marked down to £7. house-fraser-baby-spot-swimsuit

Or Benetton’s star print costume is also in the sale at £7.45. Bargain! house-fraser-benetton-baby-swimsuit
