The school summer holidays march on, going so faster than I would like.
We have busy days, we have quiet days – all in all a good mix.
It was my birthday a earlier in the week, OH spoiled me with some lovely flowers, a bottle of champagne and some good reading material:
I also got taken out for a ritzy ditzy afternoon tea – which was a lovely gesture by a very kind friend. And there were other thoughtful gifts from lovely friends and family.
We have a busy few days ahead next week with some friends arriving to visit but it will be good to see them.
I am watching a lot of Olympic action – it is surprising how easy it is to get totally engrossed. So far I have really enjoyed the swimming, diving, gymnastics and the rowing. The judo has been great – my father and brother were both competitive in judo in their day (brother going further competitively that father did but they both had their moment). I also surprised myself by getting quite excited by the fencing the other day! Tonight sees the start of the velodrome cycling (the road races and time trials were also lots of fun) but I do love the atmosphere in a velodrome. And the athletics kicks off tomorrow I think so lots of good stuff to come.
My own sporting achievements – at junior school I won the three-legged race every year with my friend SB. Quite how we did it I am not sure as she was very tall and I was very short – but we had a certain style and won four years in a row!!! I clearly peaked far too young because I have been rubbish at sport every since…
I hope you are all having a good week. I need to catch up on my blog reading as I am very behind.
