AND SO THE OLYMPIC GAMES BEGIN
Preparations have been going on for years, and for the last few weeks all we seem to have been hearing about is the games – who might be going to light the flame, what’s on TV, how it will affect travel in and around the city etc. At times I must admit I’ve felt a bit fed up about it all but, now that it’s here, I am going to get behind Team GB and hope that we do well.
I will be watching a fair amount of it on TV (loads of new channels have been introduced so that we won’t miss a minute of it!) starting with the Opening Ceremony which I had to record because we were out last night, although we did get home just in time to watch the lighting of the flame.
We were actually in London for the evening and unintentionally saw a bit of the proceedings when the Red Arrows flew over at 2012hrs to start things off, which was quite exciting and made me feel part of it all.
