As a fond Granny, I pictured myself shepherding my two excited GC into seats at the Olympic stadium where we would watch, with awe and delight, as athletes demonstrated their prowess. It was to be a 'once in a lifetime' experience.
Try as I might, I have failed!
I spoke to a friend yesterday whose daughter ( who lives and works in Finland) had obtained tickets.
This raises yet another question:
Are applicants from outside G.B. given preference?
I watched a documentary a few weeks ago which exposed the allocation of tickets and realised then that unless:
a) I had pots of money,
b) I was 'corporately entertained',
or c) I dropped in by helicopter disguised as a member of the Royal Family, I stood virtually no chance of acquiring a ticket.
I am a very disgruntled Granny!
