Did you manage to watch any of the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony?
What did you think?
I LOVED it! It was very self-depreciating, tongue in cheek, and just shows that we don’t always take ourselves too seriously :)
I loved the dancing Tunnock’s teacakes! I’d love one that size!
More importantly, I thought the UNICEF appeal was a fantastic idea, I wonder if that will now set a trend?
There seemed to be a lot of debate on Facebook and Twitter: lots of people loved it, others hated it, I thought it was great fun! Except Susan Boyle singing Mull of Kintyre (and unfortunately fogetting the words). I could have done without that!
I also loved Sir Chris Hoy saving the day, by opening up the Queen’s Baton.
And the Scotland team uniform is growing on me. A little. Except the socks. Yuk!
So, for me, the Opening has been a high. Lots of fun.
Now for the low: Mo Farah has pulled out. Boo! :( He hasn’t recovered sufficiently from illness, so I have no doubt he’s done the right thing. I guess it just reminds me that pulling out of a race can be a sign of strength, not weakness. He’s talked before about wanting to add a Commonwealth Gold to his collection, and I’m sure he’ll be disappointed.
Oh, well, I’ll still see Usain Bolt ‘flash’ past! :)
