It is not the winning but the taking part that counts

O and I both have colds so we will be spending this weekend hibernating in our little flat watching sport on the TV. (Might have to turn the heating off though, just had our winter gas bill –ouch).

O participates in sport, I don’t. We don’t regularly watch sport not that either of us dislike watching it, we just prefer to watch other things. O does support a football (soccer) team however they are not in a division that is regularly televised.

We do watch the big events, we both really enjoy watching the Rugby 6 Nations which is what we will be doing this weekend – although we don’t watch any other rugby, I’m from Yorkshire I really should prefer rugby league but I don’t understand it! We will be watching the Winter Olympics and imagine we will also watch the World Cup later this year – although I will be supporting England and O will be supporting anyone but England.

Hope you have fun plans for the weekend – especially birthday girl Anna.


  1. Hope you have a great weekend, and feel better!

  2. Go Wales (brought up to know Wales were best! Welsh grandparents!)

    Yay for birthdays! Thanks sweetie!

  3. I'm still trying to deal with a very annoyed boy, there was lots of shouting and swearing at the telly. Then some full on sulking. Going to have to feed him chocolate to cheer him up.

  4. For overseas readers or those not all that interested in the 6 Nations, Scotland managed to lose their match in almost the last 30 seconds of time. This upset my boy!

  5. just had a Scottish friend round.. again not impressed by yesterdays result! I hear yay england though.. not that I watched it. loving winter Olympics even though it means very late to bed!
