London Olympics 2012

Fifteen year old daughter was chatting to us about the Olympics. Being a teenager she rarely chats to us about much so am grateful for the intercourse. She hasn't done her maths and just eagerly asked if we can go to the Olympics in London. At least she can see the funny side of Miss Independent asking her parents if she can go to the Olympics when she is 22 years old! Son has already worked out how old he would be but has kindly said I could come with him.

Ditto - 16 year old daughter has asked if she can go. I'm looking forward to it. OMG I'll be 42 - Ah never mind.

Sweet of you to say so but I can not lay claim to having adorable kids. One has his moments, but no, I couldn't pretend to have that sort of family. They are intriguing kids though and I do like them, but at times I want to bash my head against the wall because of them. Daughter is realising that she is as bizarre as us and is not best pleased! Now what is it that Cheryl says..... Muahaaaaaaa in evil laugh stylee :-)

You'll be 42 then! Pah. Not enough that you flash your upright breasts on your blog here but that you will be younger then than I am now! Spit spit spit!

PS. Ha-ha! Our funny kids, eh! And I'm looking forward to going too.

I wish you lot hadn't mentioned age. 2012 doesn't seem that far away, but I'd prefer it if the age I'll be then were a whole lot further away.
42 - the answer to the question about life the universe and everything - it was a good year.
I missed being 37 thought - the kids were playing up (the older ones) so I spent two years assuming I was thirty eight.
And OK maybe I shouldn't have just said that.....

Congrats on getting the Olympics :) We had them about 4,000 years ago (remember - and the winner is "Siddenee"?)Juan Antonio's pronunciation was dreadful, so were the crowds - fun though :)
I understand the teenagers lack of conversation thing - I have one, so you have my sympathies :)

Your future is exciting, what with the Olympics and those fine, young people you will continue to nurture and enjoy!

Besides, being bizarre is a beautiful blessing, babies!

I thought I had clicked the wrong Bookmark! The new look is nice.
The Olympic thing is a mixed bag. My cousin who lives in Atlanta, Georgia remembers the bad along with the nice of hosting the Games in that city.

Thanks - we're not near but I have family and friends down there. Those in the areas itself are stoic and working out how to get home. It was the 3 different spouses who I spoke to who had been brave talking to their various important people who finally let go when I spoke to them. Poor loves - they were terrified.

I read somewhere that someone suggested we had 7 bombs on the 7th of the 7th month. Hmm. I don't normally go for numbers but do people sit there and work these things out in advance before they commit these crimes?
