Usually the Olympics pass me by, I may watch a bit of swimming or gymnastics and keep a half-arsed eye on what Team GB are up to. To be honest I find the Paralympics much more inspiring.
However this year my cousin Beth is in the games. I'm giddy with excitement for her. She's worked so hard for as long as I can remember. This morning I'm getting the flat sorted for my knitting marathon so I can watch the full opening of the games and keep an eye out for Beth. Go Team Storry.
Here's Beth trying out her new satanic look. The red contacts to help with seeing through the pollution.
