Well was it? Yes the official figures are out at it appears that nearly 27 million UK viewers at one point tuned into watching the Opening Ceremony.
Well what did you think?
As it started at first I thought it was going to be better than it was. Yes we all love the English countryside and there is nothing like a cute little lamb to melt our hearts, but I thought first of all it was mediocre. Continue reading →
Help me to keep my big mouth shut until I know what I am talking about…
Yes, that is a brilliant campaign slogan for Mitt Romney… Especially after his fiasco questioning us Brits on the Olympics.
One thing us Brits are good at is hosting a party or an event. When it comes to showtime, we can bring the most ordinary event the best. We might only be a little Island surrounded by water but we have the guts and determination to make an ordinary event… spectacular. And yes we are ready for the Olympics. So may I suggest you get your aides to purchase the sign above for you, because you have upset a hell of a load of Brits Continue reading →
Oh yes, the Olympic Games which has already started ahead of the Opening ceremony and it was thrown in to turmoil tonight. After Great Britain won their game against New Zealand earlier today, someone must have let the win go to their head.

We have all done it, we have all bought the cheap version of washing up liquid only to find that you have to squirt half a bottle into a bowl of warm water before you get a single bubble to form.
And yes, we have all said, “Well that hasn’t worked out any cheaper.”
If onlywe had stuck with the bottle with the well-known liquid that has the catchphrase of, “Now hands that do dishes can feel soft as your face,” in the long term we would have saved ourselves some money. That is false economy for you… rips you off every time. Continue reading →
Now I don’t know about you, but when the winning bid was announced on the 6th July 2005, I jumped for joy.. my god Britain has won something.. how amazing. Normally our bids are thrown away and scoffed at, but we managed it at long last… Bravo Britain.
Little did I, like many others, realise the bloody nightmare these games are. Well the worst part is not the games themselves, but the Olympic Lane closures… You know those dignitaries and athletes have to have a smooth ride, don’t they? Continue reading →
