..yesterday. My Action-Mom has landed there having been in Shanghai for the past few days and will be seeing The Wall today. Its obviously no substitute for seeing it yourself but it makesthe whole prospect so much more attainable when someone close to you manages to do it.
My mother is going to China in 2 weeks and is going to do this very thing. She’s a real ‘go get ‘em’ mum and is always scooting off somewhere or other. Cant wait to hear how she gets on. Its fun to have an “Action-Mum”
One of the problems with this goal is expense, so…if i could qualify for the Olymics i could go for free! Track and field are out; in fact anything that requires fitness is out. Horse-riding might be an option, after all, that just involves sitting down and hanging on, but the last time ireland entered that their horses got done for doping. Not the riders…the horses!
I should perhaps concentrate on something that Ireland isnt traditionally very good at, though that would include most things, as any genuine level of competion will plainly cause problems. Something obscure that is as yet untroubled by any recognisable level of achievement. Nude cheese-rolling…something like that.
Heard about people who walk the Great Wall of China for charity and find that it sits a little odd with me. I have no problem with anybody raising money for charity at all, it just seems like a curiously enjoyable way to do it. Its like giving someone money for going on holidays. How about they give ME money and I go on holidays! In fact, I shall investigate.
Its about being part of the world, isnt it? Joining in. god knows when or how i will do it, but knowing that some day I will gives me a good feeling inside. Besides, they obviously put a lot of effort into it. It would be churlish not to have a look.
