London 2012 Olympic Fever

We're in a lovely Olympic frenzy at chez nous....we just love it.  Everyone is talking about the Opening Ceremony, we let Miss M and Miss E stay up but by 8pm (an hour before Bradley Wiggins rang the bell to start things off), both were asleep in their PJs on the sofa!  Miss E was out for the count but this quick power nap was all Miss M needed to propel her right through till 11.15pm.  She loved it, especially the Mary Poppins bit...I'm not even sure I have a favourite part....the lush green beauty of the opening scenes, the jaw dropping mechanics of the tall towers piercing through the landscape, the rather emotional part of seeing the rings form and rise into the sky, Mr Bean, the Queen playing the ultimate Bond Girl, the expressive, stunningly beautiful dancing inspired by the horrific events of 7/7 , David Beckham speeding the torch along the River Thames challenging Daniel Craig's Bond, or the moving tear jerking lighting of the petals making up the Olympic Flame .....just sharing the first part of our home Olympics with Mr A and Miss M was magical.

We've been watching people admire them and smile as they pass....hopefully we're spreading a little bit of Olympic joy

The morning after the Opening Ceremony we caught the sun rising and lighting up our Olympic Rings...happy days!
