in Rio with the Opening Ceremony.
I for one can’t wait.
There has been so much controversy around doping,
and dismal reports regarding the Athletes’ Village.
Can you remember London 4 years ago?
4 YEARS AGO???
Seems like only yesterday
It was all very exciting.
Remember these two?
Usain Bolt (current net worth $30 million)
Mo Farah (current net worth a modest $5 million)
wish I could run…..
So the days when the Olympics were intended for amateur athletes are well and truly over. (Since 1986 in fact).
Maybe I should have a go.
I mean, I still hold the school record for the hurdles!
On your marks, get set – GO!!!
Usain Bolt, eat your heart out!
I have an idea…
Let’s have a BLOGATHON!!
For the duration of the Olympics, let’s have our own games!
Every day I’ll blog something sporty, Olympicky.
Everyday we’ll have a special offer, a competition,
a game of some description.
And throughout the Games, we will cheer for Team GB, right?
Let’s wave the Union Jack high,
let’s get the bunting out again!
We have a very clever unmounted Union Jack stamp set,
which Jim designed years ago – probably for the London Olympics!
It really is brilliant.
Comes in 3 parts.
The Blue part,
(Blueprint Sketch is a perfect Union Jack Blue!)
Here we see first and second generation ink.
(Festive Berries is a perfect Union Jack Red!)
And then comes the flag pole….
How simple is that.
(Helps when you can see through the stamp, I can tell you!)
So let’s fly the flag for Team GB!!
This set has been in the Members Sale.
Let’s extend that half-price offer to everybody,
and let’s run it for the duration of the Olympic Games.
If you do have the flag stamps,
then I challenge you to use it to make a cool
Team GB Olympic Card.
Email me a copy and we will pick a winner.
We will ask the winner to give us their card
No! We will give them the handsome prize of £20 for it.
And then we’ll send it to someone special,
together with a £20 gift voucher.
