The Sliderobes guy arrived at about 11:30 today and ended up working all the way through till 6:55, just before The Archers started. Contrary to popular belief, he started in the spare room. He will do the one in the main bedroom tomorrow. For that reason, a decent photo won’t be added until tomorrow. It also meant a second night sleeping on the long lounge.
However, this is as much of the spare room wardrobe I can fit into the shot (there’s a load of stuff stacked up behind me and I couldn’t get any further back).
And now for a little bit of Olympic madness…
I heard on the Today programme that anyone attending an Olympic event with a packed lunch must decant their crisps into clear plastic bags. I thought this was some weird security measure (similar to clear liquids on planes) because crisps could be a disguise for nuclear war heads or something. The real reason, however, is so that people don’t advertise crisps from companies other than the official Olympic crisp sponsor.
The sponsors have gone even further, telling all children performing in any of the ceremonies that their trainers must be either unbranded or the same brand as the official Olympic sponsor. I’m sure a lot of people will be looking at the children’s feet during the opening ceremony in order to determine the brand of their footwear. I know I will be.
I’m sure I don’t have to mention the athlete’s coach that took four hours to get from Heathrow to the Olympic village because the coach driver couldn’t use the satnav. Perhaps he should have followed the special Olympic lanes instead.
