Anyone that knows my family knows that we go swimming. A LOT! Its 5 days a week at the moment and some days there are up to 4 hours of swimming. I like washing towels
Recently, Millie (9) has discovered a new love and one that she seems rather good at – Synchronised Swimming. I used to be a synchronised swimmer when I was younger and loved it and thought Millie would too. So we went along for a trial. She’d only been in the pool 15 minutes when I saw the look on her face that told me she loved it and I was going to be spending even more time by the side of a pool.
Well, there’s great excitement in our house this weekend. Millie is now moving on from practising figures and is starting routines. And with routines, comes music. Argh. Last night, Millie & Derm were asked to bring 2 pieces of music that she likes that would be suitable for a routine lasting 2 minutes (I have no idea how to crop music but that’s a conversation for another day).
So where do we start? There’s so much at stake here – we don’t know these people that well yet and any credibility we have got can be ruined by the wrong choice of song. I’m not exactly known for my cool music taste (and if I’m honest, neither is Mil). It has to be one that Mil knows and likes and is fast enough to be interesting.
If it was down to me, she’d have a mix of the Frog Chorus and Bat out of Hell but so far we have come up with Olly Murs – Dance with me Tonight and Toy Story’s You’ve Got a Friend in Me.
My question to you tonight is what song would you choose as your synchronised swimming tune? Bear in mind that you might have to listen to it hundreds of times a week for the next few months so choose carefully!
