The majority of people who know me have the understanding that sport is something that really doesn’t interest me, but all that has changed since Friday. After Mary Poppins flew in to defeat Voldemort I was sold. If Mary’s a part of it, maybe Olympics was something I might be something that I could enjoy after all, and I’ve gone above and beyond! My new discovered loves include: Swimming, Diving, Fencing, Weight Lifting, Gymnastics, Equestrian, (Beach) Volleyball and of course tennis!
It seems that the Olympic games has helped the whole country rediscover a love for sport, supporting their country as competitors compete in something that has taken years of training. For that, I now have a lot of respect for those who have put all that effort in. However, we’ve still got a long way to go before I even contemplate liking football…
To think it was seven years ago since London and the rest of the UK found out we were hosting the Olympic games, and now it’s here. Wasn’t the opening ceremony just pure genius? Mary Poppins, James Bond, Mr Bean and The Queen, anyone would think I’d had some input.
Time really does fly, tomorrow will be the first of August and this month looks promising with some events. I turn 20 for starters… eek, I’m off to London and I’ll be moving into my new house! It does seem like a lifetime ago since I was in Lincoln making the daily trip into Uni, if I’m honest I do miss it, especially all the fabulous people. If you’re reading this now, I love and miss you lots. Can’t wait to see you all very soon.
Here’s to wishing you a very happy August. Now I’m off to catch-up on the swimming and indulge in a nice cup of tea!
