Welcome to the start of our
The Rio Olympics kick off today until Sunday August 21st,
So for the next fortnight,
here in Bloggylimpicksland,
we shall be celebrating some phenomenal human feats of endurance, strength and ability.
These young people are living their dream,
and in these distressing, violent times,
that can only be something to celebrate.
If I could run, I’d be there too!
What is your favourite discipline?
I love most of it, but GYMNASTICS has my heart.
I used to love gymnastics as a kid too.
I belonged to a gym club,
and I still remember marching round the hall, head held high,
to the Radetzky March.
And the trampoline!
Oh Boy!!! But we’ll save that one for another day –
Wait till I show you my moves!
We have a very beautiful set of stamps designed by our Melanie,
which blow me away every time I look at the artwork.
She has wrapped dancers and gymnasts around words,
entangled them in what they represent.
To me they encapsulate goodness.

which ends at midnight today.
So let’s open them up to the general public at half price
during the Olympics….
