Among my many, many skills I have added to my repertoire is replacing false ceiling tiles, a task that I accomplished in the office this morning with aplomb (even if I say so myself). It may not seem much to you, but I did have to cut them into shape and climb a step ladder - I am increasingly terrified of being more than six inches off terra firma, so for me this was quite an achievement. Plus it provided much entertainment for everyone else in the office.
I am an award winner. As you can see here
Obviously, there wouldn't have been room for all 10,000 of us on the stage to collect our award, so we sent Danny instead. We're all quite chuffed. Really.
By the way, if you are having a wedding, 18th birthday or bar mitzvah, you can hire the drummers from the Olympic Opening Ceremony, see here
And if you want a bit of Olympic Spirit in your Christmas festivities, you can buy the single from The Gamesmaker Choir, see here
These may be small things, but if it helps continue Our Greatest Ever Summer, then I'm all for it.
I shall be watching this with eager enthusiasm on 16th December
