I've enjoyed seeing the Brits enjoy their Olympics- really cool to see people having fun and getting into the spirit of the event, and the British athletes playing out of their skins :) Must admit I'm getting a bit over the "Chariots of Fire" theme music, though I did have a good laugh at the Rowan Atkinson COF skit during the opening ceremony.

I know! They keep playing it on the radio, too. I shall be humming it in my sleep. LOL.

I'm very pleased Team GB have done so well, especially as we're a small country. The weather has been kind, too. The sailing events in Weymouth have been very picturesque with beautiful blue skies. I love the equestrian dressage events. And love the painting of the post boxes gold in towns where there has been a gold medallist.
