Olympic Legacy

Hey! Who’d have thought it?! I think I got a bit of the “I.O.C Legacy” stuck to me this morning – a hangover from last night’s Closing Ceremony. Never known to run when a simple stroll will do, I JOGGED with the two hounds along the prom-tiddly-om-pom this morning. We crossed the finish line in this order: Oscar collected Gold as he lunged first past the bin by the steps, Me: Silver as I narrowly missed a forlorn-looking ice cream on the tarmac, and Ruby: Bronze. Trotting nicely,with great stamina, but just a little bit distracted by a plastic bag.


About thehairyhoudini

I love books and feel stabs of envy when writers and journalists display their work in print.I want to stop writing in private, and start gaining the confidence to write better, more often and for an audience.Having always kept diaries as a child, and written countless whimsical short stories in a myriad of gaudy hello kitty journals,I thought I would be a writer some day, when I stopped being a fireman (frightened of fire), secretary (does temping count?), shopkeeper (I'd still like to be) and accessory designer (which I am). I then turned 13,and that's when, with the onset of acne and a mono brow, I then discovered FASHION! Clothes, magazines and ANYTHING to do with their mythical creators. I have often daydreamed about writing for a living...witty little columns for Sunday papers, pooling ideas and knitting fragments with my pen until I can form a book.I hope this blog will give me the discipline of doing REGULAR writing, and nudge me closer to this dream.
