The coverage of all the various events was compulsive viewing, some of it for it's beautiful pagentry and colour and some of it, for example some of the sets at the amazing Concert, for their sheer car crash nature. Not wishing to be mean, but I genuinely think some performers need to accept that their voices do deteriorate with age and there comes a time to call it a day. The BBC commentary was often dire and nauseating, to the point of slashing my wrists, and yet we watched on! Fascinating.
I promised DH that if one of the presenters said "They haven't let the weather dampen their spirits", one more time, I would scream and would you believe it after that, I had to scream and scream, until I was sick!
However, vegging out in front of the telly for hours on end, waiting for the next thing to happen, gave me the perfect excuse to continue work on Crochet Blanket 2.
I got all the tails so far sewn in and did several more rows, but it's still not ready for it's tada moment yet.
Hope you all enjoyed the footage and had a good rest too!
