Am I taking my kids?

5am 18 July 2016 , the morning of my Channel swim

I take the taxi to meet up with my coach, Tim Denyer, before heading  down to Dover

Taxi driver:  Are you going on holiday? 

Me:  No. I’m going swimming! 

Driver:  Where? 

Me: England to France 

Driver: Are you going with your family? 

Me: No! What do you mean?

Driver: Your children are not going with you?

Me: Mate. It’s 40 odd km ! No. I’m not taking my kids! I don’t have kids! I’m going on my own!

Driver: oh
