Sport, the Olympics and a giveaway 8


My boys love sport, they love watching, they adore competition and they like exhilaration of winning.  There is nothing wrong with that in my eyes.  Both of the boys have been brought up to understand that if you give 100% and then lose, then that is great.  Winning is fantastic, but it is all about the effort you put in and about having fun.

Both of the boys are so inspired by the Olympics.  I am swept up on the wave with them.  We have medal charts and memory stones.  We are busy making a scrap book.  They play out with the other children and instead of being a famous footballer, they are Mo Farrar or Sir Chris Hoy.  They are inspired and the Olympics have introduced them to some bloody fantastic role models.  I know that the Paraolympics will do more of the same in spades.

Mini is currently sleeping with his Guinness Book of Records and wants one for the Olympics, so when I was offered a set of 3 Multimedia iBooks (books for iPads) from The Amazing People Club  about The Olympics and London, Amazing Olympians Volume 1,  Amazing Olympians Volume 2  and Amazing People of London I was delighted.

I also have a set of three books to give away to a reader of Mum in the Mad House.

To enter this fantastic competition and continue that Olympic magic with your children, please complete the Rafflecopter form below:

    We had the amazing chance to see the mens 100 m finals on sunday which was an incredible experience. The atmosphere in the Olympic Stadium was fantastic. I love running events because they are the most exciting for me 🙂

    We are loving the Olympics here too, it’s fantastic fun. I am so proud of Team GB! We drove past the Gold postbox in Leeds for the Brownlee brothers yesterday. The athletes are such great role models, so much better than the grumpy, overpaid, monosyllabic premiership footballers that seem to dominate sporting headlines.

    So hard to choose! Probably Athletics because it is the heart of the Olympics and it’s what we were lucky enough to see last week

    Gymnastics, Cycling and athletics were my favourite sports to watch this year. Team GB have done amazing and I feel so proud to be British right now. I can’t wait for the Paralympics to start 🙂 xx

    It would have to be the diving, I would never have the guts to even get up on the high board let alone jump & twist, etc
