Oh hey. This is the first time I've turned the computer on in days. Been distracted by Stuff (the news website, holy shit, the horror of it all, last time I went on a news binge like this it was the earthquakes). Been on masto, o'course, but for those that aren't there, I'm still around.
It's my birthday today (*checks time, yep, still my birthday, barely*). I'm ignoring the number. I had a green cake and went to the beach and ended up swimming in my clothes because I'm an idiot and didn't think I'd even want to, but hell yes I did. Nice beach at Waihi for swimming, I grew up swimming at one of the really dangerous beaches, so I've been iffy about taking the kids swimming in the sea, but Waihi Beach is lovely. Not so shallow as to be only for paddling, doesn't drop immediately so it's relatively safe if you're not an idiot.
I could swim before I could walk, but I haven't swum much in the last 20 years. Feel kinda stink because the kids have really only ever swum in pools, and swimming in the ocean is such a valuable thing here because we're surrounded in it. I endeavour to take the kids to the beach more from now on.
But I'll take my goddamn togs next time. FFS.
