LBQ goes to the Paralympics

As a Londoner it's only right that I get into the spirit and support our athletes during the few weeks that the world is watching like never before. I didn't manage to get Olympic tickets (mainly due to my cynicism and disinterest when tickets went on sale... Imagine me complaining about millions of tourists and not being able to get to work) which I was massively gutted about after I became obsessed with watching every sport imaginable for two weeks. I really wanted to be part of the atmosphere and cheer on Team GB, so when I got the chance to join in with the Paralympics I jumped at the chance. We went down to see the Dressage events this week, and although we got drenched in true British style, had loads of fun. I have no clue whatsoever about Equestrian sports, but being wedged between two experts I found myself wanting a horsie of my very own to trot about with. The fact of the day was that the horses are allowed to bring a mate into the arena with them so they don't feel scared... How cute is that? Anyway, here are a few pics from when LBQ went to the Paralympics. Next week I'm off to the Olympic Stadium in Stratford and I can NOT wait!

  1. I'm watching them too! I think the people's lives, and what made them disabled is really sad, and they should be supported for it, so it's great to see so many people turning up to it
