Down She Goes!

Last Sunday the flame came to the area I live in, so there were no excuses not to get into the Olympic spirit. The sun shone and everyone seemed to have a lovely time then it was home to have a lovely dinner, with the family!
 Since I was last here I've have been to a summer school with Janice Gunner again! I attended a summer school run by her a few years ago and had such a great time! I am going to start  a City and Guilds Patchwork and Quilting class run by her, the only problem being battling the traffic in the morning driving into London, but sometime these things just have to be done, at least the Olympics will be over and it will just be the normal rush hour to contend with......I'm not going to think about all the work that will be involved in the course (no I'm not stupid this will be my 4th C&G course so I do know what I'm letting myself in for, but I do like the structure of these courses) maybe I'm a C&G junky?
A few weeks ago Rachel invited us to see her skate, I'm not sure if I've  mentioned  here before she is a member of London Roller Girl's Recreation League. This was the first time we had seen her take part in a match (not sure that's the proper name for it)  it was very fast and IS very much a contact sport. We were just getting into it and understanding the rules, the whistle blew, it was over Rachel's team won!!!!! We will definitely go again even though its not easy sitting there and watching our little girl getting pushed shoved and even go crashing into the floor more than once. So far the mouth guard (all the time it took to get those lovely teeth straight), the wrist guard, helmet and knee pads work! I've posted a video Rachel is the 3rd girl that goes down, shes number 180.

A short post today, but I thought I needed to get back into posting, facebook seems to have taken me over recently.
