Our Olympic Bid

Posted on April 14, 2012


Are you ready for a cheesy video?

This is our bid to be bloggers for the London 2012 Olympics.

It was so difficult to fit what we wanted to say into a 30 second film, we had to do some severe editing on our ‘larks around the garden.’ We also had to retreat inside after a sunny start due to a massive hailstorm. The joys of the British weather.

If you fancy entering then have a look at the Samsung Global Blogger page. Just make sure that your effort is not TOO good as we really have our heart set on being Olympic Bloggers.

Years ago, when London was in the running to be the host, we promised George that we would take him to some events if London won. After London was successful in their bid we excitedly requested various tickets…but were unlucky in the ticket lottery, so this is our last chance to be there. I am taking time off work to spend the Summer with George getting up to all sorts of adventures and this would be the best adventure of all. Something to remember forever.

We already have plans; I have dreams of photo blogging and writing and George is honing his animation, video and music editing skills.

Fingers crossed that the judging panel think we fit the bill. Perhaps a few encouraging comments below might help our cause 😉

If you are on a mobile device and can’t see the video above, here is a link to it on Flickr where I might post the out-takes another day!

Update 15th April: Our audition video is now on the Samsung Website!
