SAGALYMPICS

Hub and I have decided that after the Olympics, and the Paralympics, there should be olympics for those of us who are (ahem) slightly more mature.

So here are a few suggestions for you:

Walking-stick vault

Tennis ball launcher (for dog-owners only) – how far can you throw?

Shopping trolley race: with different weights of shopping

Bingo-long-jump: how far can you jump when you get a full house?

Getting out of an easy chair without groaning race

What would you add?

  1. Hahahahahaha….I love these ideas! I’d be hopeless at the tennis ball launcher thingy….everything I throw for the dogs either hits Hubs, or knocks his tea over!xxxxx

      1. Remember what?

        Upload was extremely slow, probably the usual speed to expect most times now. I opened up a new tab, and got on with something else.

  4. Getting up from a kneeling position without a pew or altar rail in front to help you.

    Sitting down in a low chair without sighing.

    Completing a story without repeating yourself.

    All must be accomplished without energy drinks, but with copious quantities of tea, except –

    Walking all round an RHS garden without visiting the loo.

    Walking all round an RHS garden without sitting down for a cup of tea and a cake.

      1. Blckbird’s comment reminds me of a true story told by one of my nephews: when they were in year 7 at school they were told for geography homework to write directions for their favourite walk accompanied by a map. J described a three mile walk round the family farm, but his friend (who lived on a larger farm with just as much scope for imaginative walks) described the walk from the television to the fridge and back.
