Good Afternoon do not usually enjoy the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games but yesterday was a whole new ball game it was a fantastic show never seen anything like it before it was just perfect. I do not agree with China’s politics but you had to admire them yesterday for the way they staged the opening ceremony it will be very difficult to follow that it must have cost the earth. This morning we were watching the cycling road race and again it was a very well staged event that took place in the countryside around part of the great wall if you want to have a look it’s the ladies race tomorrow morning and we do have a good chance as we have the world champion in Miss Nicole Cook.
Today I am not going to talk about the weather as I seem to spend a lot of time doing so I am not going to spent time tell you that the rain that came down all morning in sheets causing the cancellation of our local agricultural show and how now that it has done it’s worst the sun has come out no I am not going to waste my time and yours telling you all that.
There is a lot of comings and goings in our street just now people moving out and new people moving in it is great to watch. We now have two great big skips in the road so between them and all the parked cars not it driveways or garages, getting our car out and in is great fun. In the skip across the road is a perfectly good computer chair I was really tempted to go across after dark but do not have the courage and I don’t really have room for another one.
Am going to watch a documentary tonight about the Great Wall of China as I don’t really know an awful lot about it and would like to find out more I remember when Jeannette (Welcome to my travels) was there last year she was very impressed with it. At the moment we are sort of watching The Mummy that has just started have seen it before and is a lot of fun. Till next time enjoy your evening. Love
