Relaxing and watching the games on the box

The Commonwealth Games are on at present in Glasgow and I must say I am enjoying watching every bit of them even if it is all replays by the time we do see them. As it's going on we of course are in bed sound asleep so when we get up in the morning the telly goes on while we have our breakfast and we catch up with what has happened overnight. 

     I think I enjoy the Commonwealth Games even more than the Olympics, and I don't really know why. Maybe it's just an innate feeling of family, some sort of connection with each country, through having all been part of the British Commonwealth or even the Empire at some time in our histories.                                                                                            

 Anyway I am very proud of our little country at the moment, we are doing so well for a small nation.
So last thing at night and first thing in the morning, and sometimes several times in between, we kick back and relax with a coffee and watch a replay of all the excitement.

I hope you are all able to kick back
and relax over the next few days as well.
Until next time,


  1. What Fun. I hadn't heard of these games before. Enjoy!

  2. I have to say I got distracted from your blog by the wonderful pictures! Great blog, amazing pix!

  3. Sounds like fun!!!
    What channel?

    1. Hi Marissa, I don't know whether you would get the Commonwealth Games on tv in the US. unless it was on a sports channel. And yes, it's fun watching

  4. We are relaxing this weekend by going to a concert with local bands.
    Have a great rest of the weekend!

  5. It has been dominating the tv over here. It's so lovely to see the very young competing and showing how good they are. Such talent! I'm resting now after my climb up St Paul's Cathedral (I have to, my legs won't work!!). Take care xx
