Over used word, but it definitely sums up the last week and a bit - the Paralympics.
Utterly wonderful stuff. Has anyone else been watching The Last Leg, shown on four after the Paralympics each night? If not, do try and catch one or two online, funny, light hearted, clever and very interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed it and laughed out loud several times.
I cannot believe how much sport I have watched lately - and how much I have loved it! I am the least sporty person I know, faked asthma attacks at school to get out of running, had more periods than was humanly possible to avoid the showers etc. Loathed PE, loathed it. The smell of the changing rooms and the gym, yuk.
But the Paralympics has truly given me a boost - I am hoping to try Riding for the Disabled soon, haven't been riding for too many years but as RfortheD can get me safely into the saddle and off again, I am hoping splints on my wrists etc should make it possible - only one way to find out.
Here are some of my very favourite moments from the Paralympics:
LOVED the clip of what he was actually shouting as he crossed the finishing line ;-)
I know it isn't the done thing, but blimey it was heartfelt - I didn't have a problem with it at all, it showed passion. He apologised, has laughed at himself, and will probably have to keep laughing at it because it isn't going to go away quickly!
Even finds time to unzip his top, what more can anyone ask!
There are more to come another day - Ellie, Lee, the fencer who was pronged in the ging-gang-goolies ....
Can you tell I have loved it?
In other news, PSidney and I have had some sunshine - hasn't the weather been fabulous! I think it's forecast to change as from tomorrow so make the most of it while it lasts.
And yes I AM in my jimjams and no I don't care.
Go on, go and have a peep at The Last Leg, you know you want to find the answer to important questions like this one:
And just because he makes me smile so much, here's another piccy of Mr Anthony
