With just 100 days to go, there is a lot of excitement ahead of the 2012 Summer Games. ‘Inspire a generation’ has been unveiled as the official Olympic motto. Let’s focus on ‘inspiring a generation’ whilst not focusing on how much the games are costing the tax-payer and for those residing in London, not focusing on potential travel chaos if tube workers strike. I digress.

Our fix-it yourself story competition is well and truly underway. After much consideration and deliberation, we’ve chosen our second round fix-it winners. As mentioned we’ve been really chuffed at the entries received thus far. The stories have been more than enjoyable to read and generally made our decision-making process somewhat difficult. This week we’ve chosen three winners whose stories include the fixing of a trusty ol’ dishwasher, a 1p fridge rejuvenation and a sweet Aunt’s Cordon Bleu double cooker rescue.
Ok folks, as mentioned we’ve had some absolutely fantastic stories come through from you lot. We’ve received tons of entries, by far exceeding our expectations. Thanks to some serious organisational skills and a fair bit of time we’ve all agreed on the ones we think deserve some totally awesome prizes!
Right, so firstly a huge thank you to all who’ve been sharing your fix-it stories with us. We’ve received some absolute corkers which makes our job of reading them totally and utterly enjoyable. (Watch this space for further announcements of winners!) We’ve also been lucky to get some pretty fantastic fix-it photos that we’re pretty keen to share. Some of you need to seriously pat yourselves on the back for your resourcefulness when taking on home repairs.
Hey y’all. So we are running a Fix It Yourself Fridays contest throughout the month of April and would like to hear your ‘fix it yourself’ stories. Now it doesn’t matter if the jobs were easy, difficult, enjoyable or evoked profanities; so long as you got there in the end and successfully ‘fixed it yourself.’ By submitting your stories you will be eligible to win some pretty super prizes.
Only 6 months until London plays host to the 2012 Summer Games and if only there was a way to incorporate your old appliances into the mix what an event that would make. Some crazy and creative Yanks have already created an entire competition for appliances only; Appliance Art Revival in the wonderful city of Bellingham, Washington. I’m not sure how the IOC would feel about the addition of such events but surely they could at least consider adding them to the list of Summer Games events, perhaps even Winter Games events…….see which washing machine proves fastest on the bobsled track or challenge your obsolete microwave to the gravity defying ski jump.
As you may or may not know, we decided to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon the other week.
The general mood then was one of excitement and determination, committed as the team were to doing something great – raising as much money as possible for The Children’s Trust at Tadworth. You can now donate at our brand new Just Giving page!
