If you want to get a head get a hat.......

Uh oh I'm in the dog house with teenage daughter having completely "ruined" her life, and failed as a parent, my transgression? I didn't manage to purchase a school hat which is apparently absolutely mandatory and essential wear for the "Founder's day" service on Friday....and if she doesn't have it she'll be in the deepest doodoo I can imagine. (don't you just love the sense of proportionality teenagers have.)

The following conspired to cause my failings, starting with my unrivalled ability to procrastinate, a late meeting at work, leaving credit cards at home, a parking crisis, an inability to find a sales assistant from the relevant department at John Lewis, the wholesale moving by JL of their school supplies to an on line only service, and finally placing the order at 7.03pm 3 minutes after the cut off time for next day delivery.

There was such a spectacular argument all the way home, she didn't take too kindly to being told it's just a hat..... in the end I abandoned her at home alone and went off swimming absolutely foaming. I fully expected child protection officers waiting for me when I returned home, but a degree of tranquility had set in.

The session was a bit of a survival set, as I'm suffering a bit. It was notable because the "mighty Morgan" turned up and led the lane out, sickeningly getting faster and stronger as the session wore on. The aim of the set was to swim the 200's steady and to swim the shorter distances hard. I failed miserably in that and I think that there's a fair amount of garbage yardage going on here.
