A Tale from the Sports Field

It was Sports Day at school for H yesterday.  Also for the first time, they were competing in their new houses.  H's house came third overall which I thought wasn't bad out of eight houses. I am looking forward to more house competition!

How did he do himself ?  Everyone had to compete in at least one event and by the time H came to pick an event, the only ones left were 1500m and the high jump.  Guess what he picked ?  Yes, high jump. LOL, he said, "I wasn't planning on jumping". He didn't even clear a metre.  His excuse was, the girls were shouting when I was jumping and they put me off. As excuses go, that was pretty lame, wasn't it ?

I did this a few weeks ago to document H's athletic prowess or lack of it. Even though H is not very good at sports, he always come out of a race smiling...I am proud of that. I am playing around with using low contrast patterned paper and embellishment, this time from Crate Paper Pretty Party.

I had to include Olympic in the title so it became "Not an Olympic hopeful".  Are you looking forward to the sporting event of the year ?  No, not Wimbledon but isn't Murray doing well ?. The Olympic! The torch is coming to Cambridge this weekend with some festivities on Saturday night. It is leaving Trinity College early Sunday morning in a scene from Chariots of Fire. I am hoping to catch the torch leaving on a punt.

I'm sure it will be a lovely sight to see it on the River and the atmosphere as it leaves the College will be fantastic. We just have to hope that the weather doesn't spoil things. It is in our town at 11am on Saturday but will only be here for about half an hour at the most. Hoping to see it but am a fair weather Olympic torch watcher so if it is raining I can't guarantee I'll see it!
