Last year I missed the London 2012 Olympics. All of it, if you don't count the BBC commentators giving their summary of the day's events.
My sweet grandson Benjamin was 6 weeks old then (Have I ever mentioned him?) and I was in Switzerland for almost three weeks during the Olympic time. The balance of the day was spent with the new parents and their new baby.
But, when twilight came, I took the #10 bus back to an apartment my daughter had arranged for me. (Why didn't you just stay there? At their house?) Their own apartment was the size of a kitchen drawer and I might have had to throw up a tent on their tiny balcony.
When I finally settled down for some Swiss-German TV, the choices were limited and so was my understanding. It wasn't until I returned to my own home, after the flame had been extinguished and the flags carried out of the stadium.
This video with Mr. Bean/Rowan Atkinson was all I needed to see anyway.
