Swimming lesson cont.

My swimming lesson🙈

I’ve never had so much fun in a swimming lesson…. i couldn’t  believe I am better than someone… so I’ve been off for  2 weeks… last time I checked it was me and some young mathematician…

well today we were about 7 in class 🤷🏾‍♀… the mathematician has obviously left my level in the 2 weeks I’ve been away… she had 2 new partners and they were given different tasks …  as per champion swimmers🤣🤣🤣

 I got in the pool to meet aunty Jamaica…. clutching tightly to the floats🙈🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣…. laff wanted to kill me today… I proceeded to give her all the instructions and encouragement she needed… as the swimming teacher was instructing the other group…

The mathematician was obviously thrilled to have me back. As aunty Jamaica was alone… no partner…now She has a partner….me🤷🏾‍♀…

then there was this quiet Gypsy girl who entered the pool right behind me… (gypsy cos she was escorted to the pool side by her large family of 7 or 8 who did not swim🙃)… I later had to give her instructions and encouragement at the deep end …. me oooo….. deep end with some high level stomach floats….

Then las las a proper aunty Nigeria joined us…30mins late…. OMG….first of all she took 2 steps down the stairs of the pool….. went back up and decided that…. wait for it…. that the pool was too full of water😳….we’ve never laughed so hard…🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

anyway we (professiinal learners) encouraged her to get in…. which she did eventually…. however she became anchored to the spot she stood by the stairs🙈.. see laughter🤣🤣🤣🤣…. she stood there watching us practice….another young lady … not swimming …  tried her best to get her going…. all I could hear her saying was “I can’t lift my legs”🤣🤣🤣

I practiced floating with my 2 floats round my breast and a float each in each hand (it baffles me how these weightless things can keep a whole me up🤔…..

we then had to practice floating on our backs…. with the floats round our chest….  floating on my back is not a problem for me…. it is the unfloating that freaks me out🙈…. i just cant find my feet from floating on my back to standing up….😫

Then our instructor decided that she will give all of us….(except the anchored lady)…. the experience of floating at the deep end… we had to wear a special belted float….. anyway I made it floating on my back from half way…. holding onto a pole … held firmly by the instructor 😊

We were all so excited …. laughing… and wishing we could go on…. I can’t wait for next week lesson💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾
