Everyone has these shopping baskets so Ben bought me this fabulous insulated one. It's great as I can now pack up mine and the kids lunch and it slots in to the back of the bike trailer so no more squashed sarnies. Can highly recommend them if they ever show up back home.

The kids are having another weeks worth of swimming lessons and yesterday Madeleine discovered she could swim too. She was so pleased with herself that we went back for the afternoon session and she spent 2 1/2 hours practising, well until she flipped herself over on the big rubber ring and that was the end of her swimming. Jonah is a changed boy, he can now jump in the deep end on his own, goes down the slide and spends most of his time underwater. Olivia is very confident too, probably a bit too confident for my liking. She decided to swim over the rope and then of course when she went to stand up she couldn't!!!! I had to fish her out but she didn't seem too phased. Maxi isn't so keen on the lessons but loves playing with his truck in the water and will happily amuse himself for a couple of hours.
