Big Up the London Olympics

Big Up the London Olympics

Well I am soooo excited…We have arrived! For it is the Eve of The London Olympics Opening Ceremony! Us Brits are sooo proud to be hosting this event for the third time in London.

The Opening Ceremony has been kept under wraps and although the Officials have told us that it will not be as spectacular as the Beijing Olympics, because we are in recession..I still feel we have it in us to be brilliant!

Its that stiff upper lip and onwards and upwards attitude that makes us who we are and I have a feeling that it will be special anyway.

On the ‘One Show’ in the week, Chris Evans said there will be a giant sized Voldermort walking over the English Countryside, when fifty Mary Poppins will fly down with their open umbrellas to capture him lol! He said its true…me finks not!


 In the week Rosie received two free tickets to the 5-a-side Para-olympic football, she had been nominated by her college, for working so hard through the year, we are so chuffed for her, as she really is an inspiration to all who meet her…I am only sorry that I couldn’t thank the person who nominated her…so I am officially thanking you here now…plus you try and stop me rocking into the college in september to find out who it was and give you a great BIG Kiss! 🙂

Rosie is going to watch the opening ceremony in Rochester Castle grounds on a great big screen…what a lovely atmosphere that will be…so if you live near and see her there…go and say hello.

Well I had better go…

Don’t forget to ring your bells at 8.12am tomorrow morning!

Where will you be watching the Opening Ceremony?

    You have to have one of the prettiest most colorful blogs I have seen. Just pure EYE CANDY. Yum! Congratulations from across the pond. Last Olympics near me, was the 1984 in LA. The soccer games were held at Stanford Stadium and we lived near there. That's about it. I sure hope everything goes off well and we're praying for no violence.
