    Bathing Beauties

    With the new bathing beauties design added to our range for 2014 we felt it only right that we should make like a bathing beauty and have our first dip of the year. Various members of Team Treffry have been heading to the swimming pool every Wednesday lunchtime for a few lengths but with the pool being closed temporarily we decided there was nothing quite like a bracing dip in the atlantic, in April! poppy Treffry Catalogue shot of our new tea towel design

    Trouble was, the day we decided we might go for a swim the following day was warm and Spring like and when the allotted swim day arrived it was a proper cold, Cornish grey and mizzly day! A quick facebook and twitter poll decided it though, more people said we should than said we shouldn't! And after nearly chickening out we found ourselves on the prom in Penzance changing into our swimming things in the persistent drizzle, lovely!

    But guess what, it was great, refreshing, rejuvenating, life affirming, and really, really cold!!! We only managed about 5 minutes and getting changed afterwards wasn't a whole heap of fun (especially as a couple of coats had found their ways into puddles!) but we all felt good afterwards and ready to do it again next week! bathing beauties bathing beauties.

    We reckon this lot might be swimming on the french riviera in summer rather than off the prom in Penzance in April, we certainly weren't looking quite this chic!! Let us know about your bathing beauty experiences!
