Gaz,
Not too bad and I applaud your decision to pursue a new skill in swimming!
If I were to give you any advice, at this point, it would be to have maybe two stroke thoughts (focal points) while swimming your lengths... a) Extend your body line; while switching from one "skate" side to the other i.e. from your left side to your right, fully extend your lead arm until your recovery arm is almost forward, unhurried, especially while taking a breath. b) Swim as quietly as possible, taking care not to disturb the water too much; make each hand entry 'silent'!
Much luck and happiness in your progress, keep us up.

Alan

P.S. Key aspects to focus on: "Marionette arm" and "Mail Slot Entry"
As always work tirelessly on balance and a relaxed head!
