My Olympics. So far. [Abridged]

Right, I’ve given up. I’ve been trying to write something about how much I’ve enjoyed the Olympics so far despite not being interested in sport. I have, you know. I’ve been loving it. But what I was writing became rambling and sprawling and was not going to be remotely interesting to anyone. Not even to me, when I read it back. So I’ve just deleted the whole thing and instead, here are a few pictures and videos of my two trips so far to London.

The pack passes by. This was about 12 minutes from the start of the race. 


And we watched the end of the race on a big screen in Hyde Park. 

I’m planning at least one more trip in to soak up the fantastic atmosphere.

(Yes, that was a lot more readable than my first draft.)

    That’s a shame. I would have read it and been interested. I think the transformation of Trevor would have made a very interesting read!!You are not the first person to say they’ve been ‘turned’. Maybe try a second draft? Works for me….

      Ah, now you see, Jill, I don’t think there’s much of a transformation. I’m not likely to come out at the end of the Olympics as a sport lover. I just love the sense of occasion. The spectacle.

      As for my deleted essay, I think I may have been trying to cover too much. I may break it down into smaller chunks.

      Or, as I am wont to say, I may not.
