Bah Humbug!

Is anyone else out there totally fed up of all the sporting references EVERYWHERE you look?  Every single advert on the telly seems to be connected to sport - even a famous brand of washing up liquid is counting how many washed plates make an Olympic athlete... I ask you..What Next??

I am not very interested in sport, I admit it, but I am growing less interested in the Olympics the nearer it gets.  We live about an hour and a half's drive from London, which is great, because it means we can take day trips to see the sights, take in a show or a concert and all that kind of stuff.  So, will we be going to any of the Olympic events?

I think not.

Firstly, getting tickets was such a farce and so expensive and I know people who have ended up paying a fortune for tickets to events that they actually did not really want to see.  Marry that up with the expense and time and hassle getting to London on the day... no thank you.  I think the best seat will be in my living room in front of the telly.  Or better still in the garden with the telly off and a g&t in my hands - weather permitting of course.  Don't get me started on the weather!


  1. I can't understand why anyone would go down to London and fight their way through the crowds, just to watch a sport they have no interest in. Unless you can get tickets for your favourite sport then why bother!
