Double Rainbow

Double Rainbow A wet day today in sunny Brisbane.

Early to school for Eloise's maths club, then off for a dog walk which Nicole sat out, for reasons detailed later.

Then to swimming spotting at Eloise's swimming lesson at school. She had a supply teacher today who was a familiar face - she has been one of Eloise's swimming instructors in the past. So that was a nice surprise.

I'm probably not supposed to mention the specifics of school-time antics, so suffice it to say that supervising year 2 boys getting changed is not in any way a pleasant experience.

In the afternoon I gave Nicole a lift to work then went to the optician where I had my eyes prodded mercilessly. I have a macula potential-problem which has been under supervision for a couple of years so I have to have stuff put into my eyes to dilate my pupils to allow my retina to be inspected. It makes the trip home glarey and uncomfortable as my pupils won't constrict in the bright light.

Anyway, no change on the eyes front.

I picked Eloise up from school and the heavens opened and we were soaked to the skin as we rode home. Kind of fun in a masochistic way, though Eloise isn't sufficiently advanced in the nuances of discomfort to appreciate these subtleties.

Quickly out again to dancing class, again in the pouring rain, but this time in the car, then I was off for a swim whilst she did her thing. I discharged my 1000m in, oh, half an hour or so. I was taking it easy.

On the way back from dancing we saw a double rainbow in the sky, how nice!

In other news, Nicole is pregnant. Double rainbow!
