Here come the Olympics...

I enjoy sports.

I need to make that transition between liking 'watching' sports and liking 'doing' sports - but that's for another day.

The Winter Olympics started yesterday and I have to admit that I really enjoyed the Opening Ceremony. I'm not sure if this is a change since London or if the ceremonies were always this good. I just remember sitting in front of the telly at London and thinking it was going to be, well, shite.

I probably wanted it to be. Brits like nothing more than to be pessimistic!!

But it was awesome. I loved it.

And Sochi ran a close second.

So now I can look forward to a fortnight of sports that I love and sports that I've never seen on the telly before.

I was watching the snowboarding this morning and I saw this:

A giant matryoshka!!

I actually screamed at the telly when I saw it. I adore matryoshkas and this one takes the cake.

It's HUGE!

The boarders (look at me with the lingo!) are all trying to hit in the middle of a trick. I'm not even mad because it's so fab!

I've now decided to ignore the sports and just watch so I can spot giant matryoshkas. Perhaps a trip to Sochi to liberate one might be on the cards. Don't you think one (or two) would look fab in my garden?


  1. As soon as I saw the giant matryoshka this morning, I knew you'd be squealing at the telly! :oD
