Today is the final day of the olympics, and children everywhere are now modelling themselves on Tom Dailey, Mo Farah, Luke Cambell, Ed McKeever, and Usain Bolt of Jamaica and long may it reign as it`s so much healthier than gadget games. Even my gadget obsessed Nephew has been rolling round the floor doing back flips and gymnastics!
Us Women have done well too, and as a boxing fan, I was glad to see History made as Team GB’s Nicola Adams becomes the first female Olympic boxing champ bagging 24th GOLD for Britain!
Sadly another story overshadowing the good news, is the sad story of a twelve year old girl that went missing last week, and was due to start a camping holiday with her real Grandad today, instead her Grandmothers boyfriend of five years murdered her last week. What sort of world do we live in where our children arn`t even safe at home with their families? RIP, Tia Sharp.
