A year to go until my holiday (apparently)

Not that I am going anywhere in particular, just away to avoid the embarrasing 2012 Olympics in my home town, London.

The traffic will be obscene, the tube trains will grind to a halt and work will be unbearable as news organisations always are every four years – this time especially so with it being on home turf.

Then there’s the opening ceremony, oh how I look forward to missing this event. I plan to be somewhere sunny and away from a TV or WiFi.

After Bejing what can we do that will come anywhere close?

I can see it now; Double-Decker Danny Boyle, the event’s creative director, will get the cast from Slumdog to do their Bhangra party piece while Some corgies are chased across the athletics field by Cannon and Ball. Makes you proud just thinking about it.

I can’t wait to watch it on Sky plus when I get back in the country just so I can set it on 2x and drink it in to the tune of ‘Yakety Sax’ (think Bennie Hill).

Just cos I am old and grumpy, it doesn’t mean I’m wrong.
