I’ve decided to smarten myself up for spring and summer. We’ve had glorious weather recently and I’m ready to ditch the “bag lady” look which I developed for winter swimming excursions and go for something way more glam, inspired by Esther Williams.
So far I’ve got the costume – a beautiful little blue and white number with a frill at the bust, and a pretty wee pleated skirt. Next on the list will be a snazzy flowery swimming cap (like Lottie’s), some pink lipstick, floral flip-flaps and a sarong.
The look will be completed by fake tan and painted toe-nails. I will need to get final approval from Mrs Lavinia Nesbit (Lottie’s lovely black labrador) who is an avid viewer of old movies and an authority on style, glamour and elegance.
I am slightly afraid that I will be thrown out of the swimming club by the other, tougher members because of my new look, and the fact that I can’t do the crawl. However, hopefully Mrs Nesbit will stick up for me.
Here comes summer!!!!!!!!!!!!
