Splish Splash Sunday!

After a rather breezy Saturday, the forecast for Sunday was fine and sunny.  We bought a paddling pool from Homebase months ago and it was the perfect day to put it to use.  We had a foot-pump from yonks ago which came in handy.  Once inflated, we set it up on the lawn, filled it up with a bit of water and invited rubber duckie to join the Bear for a splash.

When we were in France last year, I bought the Bear some Hello Kitty floats which we inflated for use as well.

We were apprehensive about how the Bear would take to the water as she wasn’t too fond of the pool when we were in France last summer.  Fortunately, she took to it like a fish to water and splashed around all afternoon.

We bought her swimming cosie from the Aqualud shop in Le Touquet last year which now fits her well.

What’s a pool party without some treats?  We stocked up on lovely cakes – vanilla slice, black forest gateaux and mille feuille from a local bakery.  They went really well with a pot of Barry’s tea.

Followed by a delicious glass of Pimms and lemonade with mint from the garden.

It was a really relaxing Sunday afternoon. Here’s to a warm summer and plenty more splish splash Sundays!
