Can’t believe Glasgow 2014 was a four years ago!

I can’t believe that the Glasgow 2014, Commonwealth Games was 4 years ago! So here is a look back to 2014, when at my place of work we had a theme evening for the start of the games!

Good luck to our Home Nations teams that are taking part in the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games! Question, is who do I support Scotland or England?

Can’t believe Glasgow 2014 was a year ago!

I can’t believe that a year ago today, was the start of the Glasgow 2014, Commonwealth Games! So at the Peterborough Greyhound Stadium (my place of work) we had a theme evening for the start of the games!

Since it was a year ago today, it’s given me a great reason to repost these photos!! 🙂



One day, I will get around to getting that Lycra skinsuit back off him!

My favourite bit of the Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony

While in Cyprus we got chatting about our favourite bits from the Glasgow 2014, Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony.

I love the bit filmed in George Square, when Amy MacDonald sings – Rhythm of my Heart.
