I have given in and bought a swim ticket. They are really good value and Beth still really loves to go swimming in the school pool. I think it will help us get over the hopefully long hot summer. You can't beat sitting at the side of the pool in the full sunshine, getting splashed by the swimmers and listening to their excited screaming. Carl is still doing a bit of life guarding down there so it'll be home from home.
Carl is enjoying himself in Lourdes, its very hot and he has been very very busy. He said that it has been much harder work than he expected but he has enjoyed it. Today he was involved in a pilgrimage procession through the town to the Basilica. He took the part of Jesus and had to carry a cross!!!! (The thing is that his Deputy Head teacher said that he would be perfect for the role Carl said he wouldn't do it!!! She must have won him over) I really really hope that someone has taken photos!!!!
