Emerson, our friend, who stayed the night left after breakfast and then later in the afternoon we had our friends Paul and his family visiting us for afternoon tea. We had a lovely catch up and we really enjoy their company. If you want to see some photos, click here.
This morning I took advantage of the better weather and thought that I'd go out for my bike ride. So got all dressed and ready and put my helmet on and then found that the bike seat needed tightening and I needed to wait for Terence to help me with it. And so I went out for my run instead. Usually I wait until early evening, but since I was already dressed, decided to go out anyway. It was hard work! I'm wondering at which point it actually does become easier. But I did manage 20 minutes.
Then later on we went to the Levin pools with our friends Mike, Rose and their two kids. The boys watched the kids while Rose and I did a few lengths in the pool. We managed to do about 20 lengths in total. There is actually quite a bit of work I need to do on the technique side. Terence took some photos of me while I was swimming and in a number of them I can see that I do some things wrong. I think Val is definitely going to have something to say about that when lessons start again.

And this was pretty much our second day of 2012. How was your day? Did you get up to anything special?
