Sweet relief

When it's 33 degrees, 95% humidity, SOOOOOO hot you can barely stand in the sun for more than 30 seconds before sweating like a dirty, feral pig, all you want, all you search for, all you can think about, is relief. Sweet sweet, cool, fresh, invigorating relief. A fresh lime soda, a glass of iced water, air-conditioning, a fan, shade. Anything will do.

But nothing brings quite as much relief as the ridiculously crisp, refreshing, just plain sensational feeling you get when you excitedly dive into a pool. A cold cold pool. A cold cold clean fresh water pool. With no plastic bags, no bottles, no crap. No grime to rinse off. No making sure you absolutely do not open your mouth.

No. A swimming pool is just sweet sweet worry-free, bloody amazing relief.



Thank you Hong Kong Cricket Club. I haven't felt that fresh in a looooong time.

It's a poohy day here in the UK (only about 17 degrees) but I SOOOOOO want that pool right now! x

Have to say that pool does look very inviting, even though I am sitting here looking out on the rain here in the UK.

Enjoy the cool down
