Bathing Beauty - that I am not!
One of the recommendations of my Doctors (yep I have a few) is to go to the Hot Pools and exercise. I've kinda been putting it off cause I'm not really a Hot Pool kind of person - we have them back home and I didn't like going to them much (something about the water just puts me off - our pools are natural spring water or sea water pools and often there is a slight scum - gross!). Anyway today a kind sister in Amanda's congregation offered to take us as they go twice a week. We had to get up early though as they were outside our house waiting at 7am! It was fine once I had woken up at around 7.30am! The pools are actually very clean and as you can see by the picture they are in a pretty surrounding. It is mandatory to shower before entering the pool and the woman wear bathing caps (I must have looked hilarious in mine). The sisters make a real time of it as we spent 2 hours there - by that time I had melted. I got out slightly earlier than them because I thought I would hold them up, being so slow at dressing - shouldn't have worried, they have to shower, put on their makeup and look beautiful before coming out. We waited for them for about 1/2 an hour! In reality though - that's ok because I don't have a lot else to do to fill my days up.
