What's Doing?

Something you never knew about me:

I nearly drowned as a five year old when my brother’s girlfriend took me to the swimming pool (my first visit) and told me to jump in. Which I did, not realising there was a shallow end and a deep end….

It was like something from ‘The Water Babies’, I saw bubbles rising in front of my face and then a big hand came down to pull me up!



  1. Wow! I'd be interesed to know, is the memory frightening, or is it distanced by time? And can you swim happily now?

  2. That had to be really scary! Did you learn to swim after that?
