Greece Part 7: Olympia

Finally I’ve reached the last of my Greece posts!! These photos are from our last day there in Olympia, visiting the site of Olympia itself and the museums. Of course when visiting Olympia it’s very important that everyone run in the stadium!! We did a boy’s race and a girl’s race, although most of the girls refused (including me!), runnning in 40 degree temperatures in the full midday sun was not my idea of fun!! Particularly as I can barely run without falling over anyway =D
Although when I went back later with some of my friends, they decided to run it then, it was a little cooler by then (although not much!) but I decided to be the official race photographer haha!! It was hilarious, as you can see in these photos, because Otone’s shoe fell off!! She didn’t know what to do, whether to sacrifice her place in the race and go back for her shoe or keep going and risk tearing her foot open, as Robert had told us someone had done in a previous year! So she sort of ran on the spot backwards and forwards a bit haha =D
And the final night =( We had a meal in the hotel, which was lovely, then we were supposed to be doing a talent show, but that went down the drain a bit!! It ended up just being a few people getting up and doing something and that was about it! I was going to sing but since it wasn’t a proper talent show I didn’t want to!! But we had a lovely time sat around altogether at the end of the pool, staying up the latest we did of the whole trip because we’d been too worried about getting too tired to do all the walking the next day the rest of the time!!
And finally, I have no idea why, but this picture managed to sneak itself into my final set of pictures and must have been missed out somewhere, but here is the death hill that started our trip. How apt, that sneaky thing managed to sneak itself in haha!!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Greece photos, and if you want to see more, just say, there are around 2000 more!! (Seriously, don’t ask, you will regret it!!) When I’ve stopped being useless I will do another outfit post, but I’m still all ill and rubbish. I’m going to go to the Drs soon hopefully, because I’ve been feeling like this for a long long time and they just tell me I’m tired, but it’s getting so bad now that I find it hard to do anything. Recently I haven’t been able to make it into uni and the other night I got so exhausted even though I hadn’t done anything that day that I couldn’t even move or talk by 8.30pm that night and Ben had to practically carry me to bed. I’m pretty sure it’s something to do with my thyroid because when I had my tonsils out they thought I had an overactive thyroid but did the blood test only 3 days after the operation, then told me the results were inconclusive because I still had the drugs from the anaesthetic in my system, then they never followed it up. But I seem to have a lot of the symptoms: fast heart rate, extreme fatigue, difficulty sleeping and I’ve lost quite a bit of weight even though I eat a lot (I eat 3 full meals plus at least one snack between every meal, I can eat up to 4000 calories a day and not put on weight, which sounds like a blessing but it isn’t, believe me..)
Anyway, enough of the moaning. I’m going to try and do useful things today so I’ll go and try and do that now. I think I might sort some clothes to sell, so look out for that!

    Geez, that is quite the death hill. I hope you feel better soon and that it’s nothing too serious!
