Two degrees or thereabouts in the water. I did 533 yards and Nando, nursing a knee injury, swam 200. Others were doing widths and lengths. Thanks to everyone for sharing what they have for Christmas dinner. The meat eaters were, all bar one, very traditional and have turkey…with all the trimmings. The odd one out will have beef brisket or pheasant – he hasn’t decided yet. The vegetarians split between nut roast and mushroom pie. Almost all have Christmas Pudding, but the accompanying sauces split between custard, white sauce and brandy butter. And one who also has a trifle. So a random sample of the early morning lido crowd suggests that we are all traditional in our Christmas eating habits. And I thought the club was a hotbed of free thinking radicals.
