i can breathe under water!!!!!
so my first day of my scuba diver course is complete and in it i was tested on the 177pages i managed to read (high five to myself!), and spent 3 hours in the water learning how breathe underwater using the equipment, how to share air with another diver, how to swim like a scuba diver (chin up to guide u, legs propelled from kips, big kicks, legs apart-oh so lady like!!), how to get water out my mask, how to breathe without regulator in mouth, how to equalise (so don`t burst lungs, ears or sinuses with effects of pressure as you desend and ascend!) and communicating in scuba hand signals!!! Fun but challenging in that you can`t forget to breathe but its hard not to remember when you`re trying a new skill and then not to panic when you realise you should be breathing!! i know this will all become second nature with practice!i hope!!
Was just my luck though that today it was quite cold so towards the end of the pool time i was uncontrollably shivering and my lips had turned blue! the instructor was cool, infact he was the hottest mexican i`ve seen (which doesn`t speak volumes!), although i did think he looked better in his scuba gear than in normal clothes... can you imagine...er fancy a date as long as you wear your scuba gear...maybe ok in a seafood restaurant!! ha ha!!
rest of afternoon i had left i went shopping...oh my, i`m worried, i can`t stop spending but did get a really nice versatile black top that will be so handy and some black pj bottoms, oh and some sunglasses...my others are broken!! However much justification i give i need to stop spending!!!
just checked out lastest news on bbc website and read about children in need! Terry wogan didn`t get paid for once! his conscience finally pricked??? oh and also a little jealous cos would ahve stayed and watched that....refraining from drawing pudsay on a stack of blocks like sam and i always did everytime when we were younger!!! x x
of which...sam check out sta travel as they have some cheap deals on at minute on flights to oz!! x x x
