We’re playing catch up with the Olympians. While they’re on Day 4 of this great event we’re only just starting our look back of Day 1. I’ll blame sunshine, some quality family time and several bottles of good wine. Day 2 and Day 3 are coming up too, so if you like sports this is a happy time for you.
