Saturday in Stone.

A day of watching the Olympics, after all it only comes around every four years, so I had most of the most of the TV signal. I did get some jobs done. I made a start on painting the bathroom ceiling. Keith stripped the vents and cupboard out for me and I rubbed down the ceiling to prepare it for the first coat of paint. Having done the first coat of paint, the tiles got a good scrubbing, I am now thinking of re-grouting the tiles, because it was last done some five years ago, but that will have to wait for a bit.

Lunch was eaten watching the Olympics and watching Team GB take more medals. They are doing such an amazing job at the moment.

Second coat on the ceiling on the bathroom ceiling and then back to what was to be an amazing day at the Olympics. 6pm Keith took Paddy for his evening walk, whilst I got dinner cooked, we then settled down to an extraordinary night in the Olympic Stadium, which saw Jessica Ennis win Gold in the Heptathlon, Greg Rutherford took Gold in the Long Jump and Mo Farah, took an amazing Gold in the 10,000 metres, it was such a emotional night and I will admit to a few tears on what has to have been the best night in Great Britain Olympic history. One things certain it will never be forgotten. No one, but no one can say this games has not been a success for our team or for this country.

  1. I completely agree with your last comment. We happened to be at Christine's last night, and while the men were enjoying a Jack Daniels, I begged Christine to put on the TV to watch what was happening to team GB. I'm so glad my begging was heeded because everyone of us,( yes the men forgot about drinking their JD) was shouting as loud as could be for every one of our medal winners. Am now watching the mixed doubles having cheered on Andy Murray and celebrated yet another gold medal.
