I was lucky enough to be in on Friday and able to watch the Opening Ceremony for the Winter Olympics. I thought it was very well done, except for the four trying to sing “Imagine” by John Lennon!!!!
I thought the black and white tiger was beautiful and I love that he is the mascot for the games.
The British Team entering the arena.
The Drones creating the Olympic rings.
I absolutely loved Sumi Hwang’s dress whilst she was singing the Olympic anthem. I think she must have been wearing several layers under it to stay warm.
The Olympic Flame lit for the duration of the Games.
Friday we had an evening in and Saturday we got some jobs done and Saturday evening we were out for dinner with friends who moved house just before Christmas. It was a great evening. We were there with two other couples so eight for dinner and we have known them all for thirty years and it was a fun evening. In fact when we looked at the clock it was 1.50am when we left but if felt like only about 11.00pm.
Yesterday again we were getting jobs done and DH tidied the garage. Youngest has bought himself another little car which he is going to do up and take to car shows, hence DH tidying the garage so it can go in there. I spent the afternoon quilting.
I saw on Amy’s Blog (Sew Incredibly Crazy) she has started a new BOM “It’s a “Wild” Life” running from this month until January 2019. The pattern is free for the month it is in but after that it is a small fee. I have never taken part in one of these and thought it would be a great idea to try and I have made the block for February (I will take a picture and let you see tomorrow). If you want to play along go via the button on my blog and it will take you to Amy’s blog.
It is looking like it is going to be a very busy week.
Treacle is ready to help, after she has had her forty winks of course!!!
Hugs, Susie xx
