So did I do any sewing this week? Did I hell! Having walked literally miles each day, and gone to a few things after my shifts, I popped out to see the lovely Helen this morning (on my day off), who is over with her husband to see some of the games. I also got to shop for some cold remedies, after a generous spectator donated some icky germs, and a new washing machine after mine died during the spin cycle over the weekend. Living the life I tell ya!
Having done what I thought was my last shift yesterday, I got an e-mail last night to see if I would be able to do a couple of shifts at the Emirates at the weekend. It’s less than half a mile down the road, so I said yes, but haven’t heard back yet if I’ll be needed. Which of course means not much sewing coming up either, as I have a ticket to the athletics on Friday at Hampden! Oh well, I’ll sleep when I’m dead, and sew if the Games haven’t killed me…
Here’s a couple of photos of Jack to entertain you anyway…

|My team were inside for a couple of shifts, but I didn’t really see any races!
|On the last night we were lucky enough to get in to finally see some swimming!
Glad to see Jack sticking to what he does best in preparation for the rugby! Even more glad that he seems not to have landed in the pool!
Those are great Jack pictures! The Clyde mascot is so funny! 😀
Really enjoyed meeting with you thus morning and if course meeting jack !
Currently listening to the Hamden roar and watching Greg Rutherford
The sewing can always wait!
Great to see Jack is having a great time at the games!
Glad jack was allowed in too!
I agree that sleep will wait….my up-lates generally have to do with work, so I always say that I will catch up when I retire, not that I will be in need of finding something to do! Sewing and reading will always fill my time.
Jack have you stasrted training for the next games. Perhaps the Olimpics????? I'm glad you saw som of the swimming/ bears are very good swimmers.
Sounds great even if you didn't get to see much of the swimming, are you all finished now then? Also I bought a tumble dryer- my very first- last week and that has seriously changed my life in so many ways, not least that it removes dog hair from my quilts. Who knew? (Answer, everyone but me with the crusty towels and the wet damp smelling clothes)
Looks like Jack is having a good time, the preparation for the sevens looks spot on too, what a great couple of days they were!
It always happens like that…super busy and something breaks down. Looks like you had a great time at the games! Good for you to help 🙂
Love your pics, and your "sleep when I'm dead" philosophy – I need to change my attitude!!! 😉
Wow! It looks like you and Jack had so much fun!!!
Glad you managed to see some of the swimming after all your hard work. Well done from one household that has thoroughly enjoyed the Games.
Huh, so that's why my beer had less in it than I expected! That will teach me to get there late. It was good to meet yup with Jack at the Sevens and kind of him to look after my bottle even if he did help himself.
Dad and Jock
PS seems I got the same cold bug thing – I had not much voice Monday or Tuesday and I'm still coughing.
I hope you are resting your feet this weekend
Hope you enjoyed your Friday at hampden…..we had such fun there on Wednesday. Bet you're properly knackered now! juliex
