Mutterings of a Fool

The gallery – something I’m proud of

Although it was very tempting to be a gushy dad and say how proud I am of being a dad to Matilda and soon the sprout, when I actually  thought about it I’m proud of something even more fundamental and important, that dear reader is my little boys, my swimmers, my wing men  if you like.

Those little chaps have proved that Matilda was no happy coincidence and done their stuff again. They took on that epic journey and at least one made it to the end past all the obstacles and challenges (like an episode of 41 degrees North only warmer).

So here in this week where we are prompted to provide a photo of ‘something we’re proud of’, I give you the result of my swimmers work (you didn’t think I was going to show a photo of ‘that’ did you?).
