Back to school: What’s in your swim collection?

Lady P picks her first swim collection

Lady P is only 22 months old, so in the traditional sense, summer holidays don’t really affect us. In other ways, they kind of do.

When the schools go back…

Soft play centres will feature a lot less frantic boys trying to run at everything.

We will stop going out in the car between 8.30-9.15am and 3-4pm.

It will be cheaper to book a holiday.

Lady P’s nursery will become busier again.

But also, all of my family (of teachers) will be back from their annual 6 week pilgrimage to the sun. Hurrah!

Even though it’s been 12 years since I last had a long summer off after finishing uni, when September comes, I still can’t help but get the ‘back to school’ feeling.

I love to browse the stationery aisles in the supermarket – I just can’t resist a new pad and pen.

So I’ve decided that this autumn Lady P will kind of go back to school; swim school.

If you’ve read my blog before, you may have seen that she actually started swimming lessons at 4 weeks old.

But now Lady P has an opinion on things, she has picked her new swim gear from Next’s new collection for younger girls.

Here’s her swim collection!

Ooh, Lady P has good taste.
Do you actually get her to wear the goggles though? I never have any luck getting mine to fit me and I have the same trouble when taking my grandson swimming. Don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

I love all the Finding Dora swimming things! I have decided to start taking my son swimming every week once the holidays are over so I am going to have to get him swimming things too. #picknmix
