I’m sure I’ve mentioned this a few times, but this morning we made the most of the Schweppes Schwim promotion – you take a bottle cap from the Schweppes Abbey Well water (either blue or green) and hand it in when you get to reception – and voila, a free swim! The offer is only valid from Monday to Friday.

We’re lucky in that all the pools near us are doing this promotion, as not everyone is. You can pick up the water very cheaply in supermarkets (Asda had the smaller bottles for 50p), so if you’ve often got a bottle in your bag when you’re out and about, keep an eye out for these ones, and save the tops – you’ll save quite a bit. I know to pay each time would cost me about £5.00 – and you’re never sure how long swimming with a toddler will be – they’ll let you know when they want to finish!
