The Flipster’s first foray into the world of Surf Lifesaving and Nippers was a great success. Let’s face it, running and water was always guaranteed to be a winning combination! A fabulous experience all round was topped off with a first in the under-7s beach sprint in his first Surf Carnival down at Venus Bay.
Jacob’s bath water is reserved for the front garden which doesn’t get any of the tank water we save for the veggies and fruit out back. We haven’t been entirely succesful in making sure it is evenly shared around. What with the birches, the mulberry, the peach, the lemon and the rest all competing for the daily buckets, it’s hard to remember exactly who had what, when, and how often. And then suddenly one morning you’re confronted with desicated mulberries or leafless birches.
So we’ve come up with a solution. All the major players have been named after a day of the week and will receive ALL the bath water on that day, each week. Hopefully this will ensure one good soak a week and maybe the odd shower will bring up the shortfall. Who knows, we may even resort to using mains water now and then!
