My Weekly Special - - Relaxing With The Stars -

“I’m not re­ally very good at re­lax­ing. I en­joy my work and it takes a lot for me not to be en­gaged in it or think­ing about it. Yes, I’ll have a drink and a chat, go for a meal or do any of the usual things but I find re­lax­ing quite hard work. I think the most re­lax­ing thing I have ever done was when I went on hol­i­day and had the op­por­tu­nity to swim with dol­phins. I hes­i­tated at first be­cause they are bet­ter swim­mers than me and I didn’t want them to show me up but I de­cided to take the plunge and they were mar­vel­lous. So there I was in clean, warm wa­ter with these dol­phins who were very friendly and wel­com­ing and showed me what they could do in the wa­ter be­fore giv­ing me a bit of space so that I could show them what I could do. I don’t think they were very im­pressed but they were very po­lite at least and just kept grin­ning at me, like they do. I found the whole ex­pe­ri­ence fas­ci­nat­ing and just won­der­fully re­lax­ing. I could have stayed there for­ever but I don’t think the dol­phins would have put up with me for that long.”
