Wakey Wakey

The Whiteside family were up early this morning as my son and I, who are in training for the Sport Relief "Swimathon 2016" this weekend, went to take advantage of Copeland pool's "Swim challenge" session at 6m this morning.

Oops! This should have been 50p in every hundred pounds.

Perhaps they were not properly awake yet. I could understand that ...
