Learning to swim at 38.

That’s right, I am learning to swim at 38 years of age! I don’t normally do new year resolutions but this year I set myself the challenge of learning to swim. I was so scared. I was that scared, I got in the water (which was an achievement in it’s self! My arms starting shaking when I was clinging on to the noodle. A noodle, in case you don’t know, is a long bending float.

Yes you read the title correctly, I was at one point recently, going to leave social media and stop blogging. I had pictures of myself and my kids on my blog and IG, I thought nothing of snapping photos and posting them. Then at work we had safe guarding training. Things changed. It opened my eyes to the big wide world of social media. The world that I don’t want to willingly have my kids right in the middle of.  There are as we all know, some really vile people out there.
