Yep, I got in on the Olympics too. Seeing as I live only about an hour from Weymouth, it would have been rude not to. For anyone who hasn't been watching the sailing (I don't blame you, it's not the most thrilling of sports in my eyes!), Weymouth is where it's been happening! I'm pretty sure we won a gold and two silver medals in the sailing. Anyway, I hadn't got the chance to go to London, but I wanted to experience a little bit of the Olympic atmosphere. So I got the free (yes, free... seemed a bit too generous to me...) park and ride to Weymouth and had a lovely afternoon out. The weather just so happened to be brilliant and it was really busy, which made the atmosphere was amazing!

    Here are the (very few) photos I took. The quality of the images isn't great - I took my £30 camera this time as last time I went to Weymouth the sand got in the lens of my DSLR and wrecked it. But you'll still get a sense of what my afternoon was like!


 
    I've actually enjoyed the Olympics surprisingly, despite being a general moaning-pessimist about it all - I think it's been pricey and it certainly won't do what it's set out to achieve. I doubt it will have a significant long term effect on future generations partaking in sport. Ok, I'll try not to end this on a sour note! It's been great to see Britain do well. I think what the Olympics has let us show is that what sets us apart from a lot of other nations is that our athletes weren't (often) disappointed with not getting a medal, us Brits seem to embrace the (very true) saying - 'it's the taking part that counts'. I'll stop here, it's getting a bit soppy.

   I'm TOTALLY watching the Spice Girls tonight. I'll be disappointed if they sing just the one song as I'm planning on bringing out my age 7 Spice Girls t-shirt and waving it round like a loony (I'm not even joking). How have you felt about the Olympics? Are you looking forward to the closing ceremony because you've simply had enough of it or to see some great British music?!

  1. I'm not going to lie - I don't actually know what I'm going to watch after tonight! I've become so addicted to watching the Olympics it's unbelievable. I definitely think we've been the most gracious nation about losing out on medals. Take last night for instance, Tom Daley was jumping around at winning the bronze, the other competitor crying his eyes out at silver! I'm so giddy for the closing ceremony, I'm going to sit with cups of tea and too many biscuits and love life, I hope the Spice Girls perform wannabe!

    I've just noticed you have the Motel Rocks discount code, just to let you know I've also got one if you wanna make use of one seen as you can't use your own :)
