Euro 2012 was a triumph. OK our boys, if you're English, weren't the best, but we did okay bearing in mind we only appointed a manager a few months before the tournament. The dreaded penalties put paid to our progression, nothing new there.
We also did well at Wimbledon, Andy Murray becoming the first Brit in 200 years or something to get to the final. He played well and his teary speech endeared him to many.
The most amazing event so far has to be the Tour de France, with Bradley Wiggins becoming the first British winner in Paris yesterday, I never thought I'd see that.
Next up: the Olympics. There has been an awful lot of unpatriotic grumpiness over the games - not helped by the weather, ticketing controversy and the dreaded 'Olympic lanes'. But what really matters is that we have two more weeks of sporting excellence and extravagance, and of course excuses to avoid real work, to look forward to.
I am no economist, but I am guessing that a combination of Euro 2012 and the Olympics is guaranteed to send the country further into recession, as we all relish the excuse to avoid the office, thereby not contributing anything to the economy other than perhaps supporting the beer and nibbles industry.
I managed to get tickets for the handball. But call me an armchair fan; I'm actually looking much more forward to enjoying the whole spectacle from my sofa with the family. We're lucky to have Freesat, which is the only way of getting all of the BBC's 24 live HD Olympics channels for free. It is the ultimate TV event as there is so much going on. We're basically going to be involved in our own marathon from the sofa.
There is one law of Olympic watching in my house, the remote control will be under my supervision at all times. Like all good businesses there has to be one boss with direction, and when it comes to the business of watching sport I'm the king. I will be selecting the sports from taekwondo to 10,000 metres. I will also be in control of rewinding to catch those magical or comical moments again.
There really is something satisfying about watching Olympics on the TV, as there are so many great events to take in and the chance to impress a captive audience around you with your expert knowledge of the snatch technique of the wrestlers, or the spiking ability of the volleyball players.
We are British so it's time to embrace the rain; it's what we're good at. Let's face it, it wouldn't be British Olympics if it didn't rain. So when the heavens do open, remember you're British, stiff upper lip, put the kettle on and turn the TV on to watch Usain Bolt et al get soaked to the bone as they try and win medals.
Two whole weeks to look forward to - watching British Olympian successes, including no doubt several surprise heroes, as well as a further two weeks later in August of some of the most impressive feats of human achievement against the odds in the Paralympics.
As the London Olympics motto quite rightly states, it's time to "inspire a generation", whether they're there in the thick of it or at home watching on the box!
