Major success: She got wet and everything.
It might sound like a given, far from it. In recent visits to the pool, The G has become water-resistant, splash-proof, our sessions proving to be short-lived.
It has been a while, but The G was adamant about our morning activity, swimming, no other options, nothing else on her agenda.
I was sceptical for obvious reasons, but following a cautious start, she loved it: Jumping in, splashing, wave machine, water slides, the works.
For the first time in ages, it was me who called time on our visit, almost an hour after our arrival on the poolside.
No exaggeration, some recent sessions have failed to last six minutes, let alone 60, this an astonishing improvement.
Showering afterwards, she gave our morning the thumbs up.
"I like swimming," she said. "Come swimming again."
