I got a couple of emails and txts re: Enterprise swimming club. One was from Steph in Jersey, Jane’s best friend at school, who as I recall went out with Trevor from the club ( so not only did it provide exercise , but a micro-dating agency ).Steph pointed out that Jane NEVER went in the sea , just held court on the beach . Which reminded me of the year , we had our summer outing ( 1969 ? ) to Hove, not only did we have a pre-lunch sea dip, but gungho Norah, the chief instructor had booked ‘King Alfreds Baths ‘ for an afternoon session ( swim – not a reference to the dating agency ). At the end of the session , all the strong swimmers stayed in the pool , we divided into 2 teams ,identifiable by a rather fetching red or white swimming hat which tied under the chin …then a game of hi-lo commenced ( a sort of water basketball ) Well the final scene in ‘Gladiator ‘ had nothing on this. Disability or not , it was survival of the fittest ( prob the originator of equal opps ), there were limbs flying everywhere ( literally ) and the shouting , as about 3 players were blind, and the grabbing as about 4 players who were deaf. I think the St johns ambulance bunch were only called upon twice. I was in the losing team.
Georgina , I know about the co-op ad. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry , all i know I’m boycotting the shop on principle of stealing one of Rosie’s top 5 ipod tunes …..anyway theres not one round here ( but there is in Stirchley – so go start a protest ).
