Dressed in red, white and blue ...

Have I mentioned that our slimming and exercise class teacher, Cherie, is nuts? Last week she did the first of the Olympic themed classes, which includes kick boxing, archery, kung foo and swimming. The difference between the real Olympic swimming and us - apart from lack of water obviously - is that we have a shark in the pool. Oh and doggy paddle has become an Olympic event.

Kung foo requires a scream of attack and the victory lap needs flags, hence my outfit for this morning. I thought I'd be the only one with flags but I was underestimating the glorious insanity of the rest of the class: there were flags, pom poms and red, white and blue wrist cuffs galore.

But what this photo says to me most is: I really must go and buy myself a new exercise bra ...

P.S. Lest you think I've abandoned my Welshness for the sake of these games, my t-shirt reads, '100% Welsh. Need I say more?

At least you got the Union Flags the right way up. More than some of the GB medallists did :-(

More by luck than judgement, stu.

You spotted me, jams!

Absolutely, sub. I shll have to combine it with the wedding bra purchase.

Love your new profile pic (?) leslie! You look very happy.

My Australian cousins woke up after a severe storm one morning to find a real live shark swimming around and around their swimming pool. Yes, it had been washed in by a freak wave! I've no idea how my uncle got it out...

☺☺☺☺☺☺☺

Liz you say Sherie the Cherry is nuts but I have to say you do look pretty deranged in that snapshot. Or is it just another case of Olympic fever. Everyone seems to be going potty about them. Did you know the bbc launched about 26 special satellite channels just to cover them? I'm really annoyed as the new place I'm in has no TV aerial and I've yet to get round to paying someone massively over the odds to plumb the Sky dish into my room. Probably they're going to want at least £50 just for 3m of cabling and they don't even have to drill a hole in the wall ~ the Virgin media people left one big enough for George to crawl through. And cut the satellite cable in the process, the bastards. I can't remember how I got onto this subject I'm very rambly today.

By the way you really remind me of some TV actress I just wish I could put a name to the face... (Weird, huh?!)
