A funny old ryhme my mother used to sing to us does anyone else remember it or know its origin:

” Oh Jemima look at your uncle Jim,
he’s in the duck pond learning how to swim,
first he does the breast stroke, …
then he does the side, 
but now he’s under the water
swimming against the tide”…

Dedicated to my mum Josie Icke (nee Lomas) 11.11.1923- 20.10.93
Originally born Tideswell, High Peak but lived in Coniston Avenue, Litle Hulton, Salford 1952 -1993.

And my friend Nigel found another version of the same rhyme/tune.. was this a second verse or the original rhyme that was changed for fun?

“Oh Aunt Jemima, look at your Uncle Jim 
Scrubbing out the passage with water, soap and vim. 
First he kneels on his left knee 
Then he kneels on his right 
Now he’s knelt on a bar of soap 
And skidded right out of sight”

Seaside towns

Norfolk’s seaside towns are full of activities, attractions and fun for all the family. Try Great Yarmouth‘s famous golden mile of attractions, with rides and amusements for children of all ages along the seafront, from crazy golf to thrilling rides at the Pleasure Beach. Or have a family day out on the beach, playing rounders, flying kites, building sandcastles, or just kicking back and relaxing. There are over 15 miles of beaches in the Great Yarmouth area, including the seaside village resort of Hembsy, meaning space for everyone to enjoy the sands. And with beach wheelchairs available from Great Yarmouth TIC, it means that all the family get to join in the fun on the beach.

Take in some seaside family entertainment on the pier at Cromer, or visit the traditional and picturesque towns of Sheringham and Hunstanton, and also Sea Palling and Mundesley, all of which were awarded the Blue Flag in 2011 for the safety and cleanliness of their beaches. Children can also enjoy a traditional donkey ride along the beach at Hunstanton or Great Yarmouth.
