Thrilled to Bits today!

Considering that the Olympic Games are in  the UK,  my own country  of residence this year,  it has been virtually impossible to get tickets for the Olympic games.

I applied for Olympic games tickets last year, and was unsuccessful in the ballot. Today the Olympics ticket Website offered those who were not successful in the 1st series of applications to reapply for Olympic Games tickets.

I tried first to get tickets for athletics, I did try and get Olympic tickets for the athletics final day which, due to the amount of people who would probably be trying to buy tickets for the Olympics, was probably not a good idea. I kept trying and trying but still got the message nothing available, then I tried for rhythmic gymnastics and diving in the hope that I would get to see Tom Daley compete and although there were diving tickets available, at £350 for each ticket for 1 hours competition I thought it probably was not worth our while.

However, I did attempt to get Olympic tickets for the Grand Prix freestyle dressage in the equestrian arena in Greenwich and much to my surprise, I was successful !!

So, now I have 2 tickets for the Grand Prix freestyle dressage event which also includes the victory ceremony. I’m so excited about this and hope to go with my daughter, so at least we will get to experience the Olympic atmosphere even though we probably will not be able to move in London because I’m sure the London transport is going to be jammed up during the Olympic Games.

For those who don’t know me, during the 15 years that we lived in Bahrain, Middle East, a huge part of our lives was spent competing in equestrian events, mostly show jumping and  dressage.

I’m looking forward to spending a memorable day at the Olympics with my daughter, knowing that it will be a once-in-a-lifetime event.
