I took some truly awful pictures of the Athletes Village while I was volunteering. Gonna share some with you soon. I don’t have any with famous people as I’m way to cool to ask for snaps….and we weren’t really allowed anyway lol
Anonymous asked: After your post I really just wanna massage your knees for you and give you a hug! On behalf of everyone else, thanks for taking the time to help with the Games 2012. I hope you keep your faith and practice up to overcome any hardships or conflicts you may feel. Wishing you all the best and I hope you have a great day tomorrow x
Don’t! You’ll make me tear up lol - Thank you. I’d welcome the hug AND most definitely the massage. I can’t imagine being anywhere else honestly, so if I’m destined to struggle right now in my life, I’m glad It’s alongside something I vowed to do come hell or high water. Not a chance I’m letting anything get in the way of something I’ve wanted to do for 7 years! =o)
Thanks again Super Anon you win my heart - Have a great Wednesday xx
Thought I’d only ever be able to tell four navy officers to take off their belts in my dreams. Today my dreams partly became a reality.
Every Part Of My Body Hurts…
and yet, I can’t wait to get back to that 5am wake up call, that 8hour shift, that excruciatingly uncomfortable uniform, that under par food, the overly keen security guards who like ‘the meaty girl’ (lol)… I shouldn’t want to get back to the Olympic Village tomorrow, but I can’t think of anywhere else in the world I’d rather be.
An exaggeration, maybe, maybe at my Granddad’s house in Barbados, maybe that’s the only other place I’d rather be.
I Had The BEST Day Today Team!
Today was the first day on the job, volunteering at the Athletes Olympic Village. It was really great. My team are awesome and I was great on the job. Only problem. My trousers still don’t fit very well at all. Even after mum’s alterations. She added at least two inches on to both thighs. But the crotch is no wear near my own and the matieral they chose as NO stretch in it at all. NONE. I was so restricted walking up hills and raising my knees up is basically impossible. I’m going to need to have an intence set of massage tonight. I’ve got cramp from walking funny all day. It’s the only thing I could say that would ruin this experience for me. I need to be comfortable!! And I need to be be able to move around and not feel like a slow moving articulated lorry in a China shop. I’ll keep you guys posted of course. Today my team were welcoming the athletes into the village for the first time. Why are so many of them so sexy??? I kept my shit together, but my brain was a filth factory, I can’t lie. And the troops are everywhere looking… *sigh* …beautiful in their fatigues. Just beautiful. So …yeah. Day 1 done.
At my role specific training at Hackney College. Games Maker swag!
Role Specific Training Booked! EXCITED
All I know, is that this Summer I’ll be hanging around the Athletes Village and having a wicked time! So glad I’m gonna be involved in some small way in the Olympics. Gonna snag me a motherfuckin’ husband lol
