OK OK so I feel a bit like Michael Fish! lol!..
.I did laugh in my last post, at the prediction on the One O'clock show, about the Opening Ceremony, having a giant sized Voldermort and 50 Mary Poppins in it...I soooo laughed when it actually happened...The Opening Ceremony was such a blast!...from beginning to end, to us, it was captivating!...
The Industrial Revolution and the forging of those rings...
to the lovely Queen Lizzie being a Bond Gal!...Way To Go MA'AM!
 Mr Bean playing that ONE note on his keyboard lol!...A giant Voldermort and a plethera of Mary Poppins coming to rescue the children in Hospital...to the lighting of the torch, by nominated young athletes of the future...which was such an amazing and brilliant idea, better than any famous person lighting it!...

Oh we loved it all!
We laughed, we cried...we were captivated, as indeed I am sure the whole world was!
 ...And now I am hooked...every spare moment I get, I am watching it and willing TEAM GB on!
We watched the girls beach volleyball the other night...Wow! how fast moving is that!...It was neck and neck...us and the Canadians...I had to go out of the room for the end...just incase I bought them bad luck hehe!....When I heard Freddy yell...I knew we had it in the bag!...we were through to the semi's!
 I won't bore you with everything that I have watched as I am sure you are the same...there's something about it all being on home turf...and especially as it is all, just around the corner to us...oh it is so exciting!
