This is a garden ornament I spotted whilst on holiday. I'm sort of regretting I didn't buy it!
We have had a busy couple of days doing up Sian's bedroom. We finished it yesterday after a trip to IKEA and then a long time spent putting the furniture together. It looks great (I must take some photos!) and Sian is thrilled with it.
Today is a holiday and we've invited Phil's family over. Of course this means a ton of house cleaning, cooking, etc to get ready for it! I'm not feeling 100% either today :( I woke in the night with stomach pains and I'm still not right.
The Olympics finished yesterday and already the moaning and griping about 2012 and the London Olympics has started. There has been widespread criticism about London's handover segment looking "cheap" whilst at the same time complaints about the cost to the taxpayer about the Olympics itself. It seems you can't win - you either look cheap OR you get accused of overspending. I thought it was ok myself. Not sure I could have done any better!
Like it or not, the Olympics are coming to London. I think we should focus on the positive things this will bring our country and we'll all be a lot happier. Except for the people who are much happier having a good old moan!
