Alas and alack!
Having been a swimmer all my life, I have finally stopped.
I no longer have a pool as stopped using it preferring to be in the air conditioning and after having a melanoma on my face.
I used to swim day and night and now i feel a bit embarrassed at the shape of me so do not like to be seen in bathers -having crushed a vertebrae in my back, I am very self conscious of my not straight back as I feel everyone can see it!
So, very rarely do I now swim in any weather. It has been about 3 years since I went on a cruise.
I am not, nor have I ever been a swimmer!!! I have the most ridiculous fear of water ever since havuing almost drowned when I was aboutv 7 down at Wilson's Promontory!! Despite trying many times to learn this wonderful activity, I have failed dismally every time, so I prefer to just not go throuh the trauma any more!!!
