Good morning, afternoon or evening.
So how are you? Enjoying the Limpicks? I have to admit to something. I am actually watching it all…even without DH being there! Shock! Horror!
Our celebrations continued last Saturday with an Olympic BBQ. We didn’t see much of the nephews who visited….they were firmly ensconced in front of the TV watching the first days events.
This week began with a trip down to London. What for I hear you ask? Well what do you think! ‘Limpicks!’
Wednesday was our anniversary, and so we put the Olympics aside and took a trip up to town. London however is definitely in an Olympic frenzy however…even Nelson’s getting in the Olympic spirit
Leicester Square sported Olympic medals…….
But Shakespeare remained un-amused and undecorated. It took a pigeon to use it’s initiative to try to decorate him.
Carnaby Street and China Town also showed their patriotism…..
See what I mean!
We had a fantastic day….without having to drag tired monsters about the sights. A visit to the National Gallery to see lots of grand Masters, soaking up the atmosphere in this very international celebration, and a long ago promised fulfilled with a meal in China Town.
We also saw the man who has cycled here all the way from China…..
I have to admit to having very sore feet at the end of the day, but this was very welcome………
Then we went to the Olympics!
Don’t believe me?………….
We were there! DH was very excited!
Before the match started…hence all the empty seats.
Holland verses China. Holland won.
Watching the big screens……trying to get on telly!
And the Royal Barge. Moored just behind the BBC centre.
We had a fantastic time, and I can confirm that the Olympic park is brilliant! Just wish we could go again. Ho Hum!
Well time to revert to the giveaway that is up for grabs. It’s not too late to enter.
What do you have to do? (A reminder)
•Tell about a creative way you are celebrating throughout the olympics. EG. An opening/ closing ceremony party, an event BBQ (eg Men’s hockey final), rejoicing in a gold medal win of your favourite athlete etc.
•Comment on where in the world you are watching the Olympics. Telling the event that you are watching, and the time that you are watching…I know some of you may be up in the night or very early morning to see.
•Don’t like the Olympics? Tell us about the creative ways that you are avoiding it all. Have you booked a 2 week cruise down the Nile? Decided to climb Everest?
You can include a photo if you want or email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post it for you.
After you have commented, sit back and relax. The winner will be drawn on Sunday 12th August 2012.
