Have you been watching the Olympics? I have as much as I can. I want to, but feel a bit uncommitted. Every time I sit down to watch something, something boring is on read: triathlon/marathon/archery. Or I flick over while I am waiting for a big event - and then miss the whole race. Yes Usain. I missed your race. Silly, silly PMM.
My kids are big into the Olympics. And they have kindly informed me a couple of times that they think I should participate in the Olympics next time.
As someone who was always the "Most Improved" in our primary school netball team; as someone who spent more time in the library than learning how to dribble the ball; as someone who spent her lunchtimes in the school dark room developing photos, rather than warming up for the following PE class, I can safely say, we not going to see me donning the green and gold in four years. I hate to disappoint.
