Sat here watching the opening ceremony of the 2012 Paralympics. The show is once again spectacular. I hope it does much to promote and inspire disabled athletes from across the world.

Had our own mini olympics today; there was the marathon monopoly game, weight-lifting 5 baskets loads of washing! The sprint – to get the washing off the line when it started to rain and the decathlon of household activities that we have undertaken.

Downloaded another flurry of free books to my kindle, I never believed I would be a convert as I love holding a real book, but I’m becoming an addict!

Going to get back to the opening ceremony now.
