In a world of my own.
Due to the fact we havent had a home saturday for a few weeks I have got into the really nice habit of taking my daughter who is nearly three swimming on a saturday. It gives the Mrs a break (All be it she has my son) and I love it.

We got to our local leisure centre and it has all the usual stuff you expect nowdays such as river rapids, a hot pool and my daughters favourite the flumes.

The past two weeks I have been amazed by how many adults go on the flumes alone. I am not kidding when I say that it must be one of the slowest flumes ever, its almsot walking pace, there are no real dips as such. Its ideal for me with a three year old but really its not worth the effort as a grown man.

Does anyone else think its a bit sad for grown men to be going on crappy flumes on their own? I have no issues with the wet and wild Florida type flumes etc but the local crap ones you get on your own....I think its a bit sad and it really slows up the queues for the kids.
