Breaking into a light sweat

Stocking up on carbs and protein.
Celebratory glass filled.

I may not have got tickets,
and may never have excelled at lacrosse, tennis, 
netball or swimming at school
but I can roar encouragement,
and dish out expert advice for team GB on any sport now,
from the comfort of the sitting room.

Tonight Matthew I am going to be a champion heptathelete 
and runner.*

Edited to add: And so it was.

* Catchphrase from Stars in their Eyes.


  1. Husband's bike has remained in the back yard all week , untouched . There's far too much cycling to watch on television !

  2. it has been a wonderful games hasn't it?

  3. An emotional day for me - I cried with the rowers who just missed gold - got excited when Jessica wons hers and felt exhausted with emotion when Mo won the 10,000m. What a day!

  4. Han't it all just been wonderful?!
