I DID IT AGAIN 💦🏊🏻♀️🐥 and this time I brought you duckling evidence. While I'm no card-carrying wild swimmer yet (I'm only ever two seconds away from fully freaking out THERE IS SOMETHING UNDER THE WATER WHAT IS THAT TOUCHING MY LEG no it's cool I'm cool) I have now swum in a pond twice which shows it wasn't an accident. #butwhatifsomethinginthewaterwantstoeatme#pondsharks
You're not allowed to take photos at the Hampstead Heath Ladies Pond so here is Betsy, who went for a swim in some mud, to commemorate that I ALSO went for a swim today. ON PURPOSE. In a pond. After 5 years of watching Kristin take the plunge in all weathers.
It was glorious and an actual duckling swam up to say hello 🐥 IS THIS LIFE? #dayoff#simplecountrycurate#butwhatifsomethinginthewaterwantstoeatme?
Cricket. Summer. Palaces in your back garden. #cricket
I've been doing all sorts of secretive things in London this week, but being out of the usual parish routine ("routine" oh how she laughed) has given me a good perspective on life. And time with the smaller family members.
I mean, watching this kid learn to read in 2 weeks flat, and to get rugby tackled by his big sister just because she's pleased to see me, and to have TV dinners with my anti-TV big sister, and to hear about my friends' lives first hand... it's just all very good timing, yeah?
