I don't know about you, but I certainly tuned in for the opening ceremony last night (admittedly we missed the first 5 minutes as we were out and I forgot to set it to record :( but at least it was only 5 minutes) I was quite intrigued as to how it would play out after reading many uncertain articles when it was first announced. But I thought it was a really good show, that showed history, our British comedy, film and music. I did the part of the NHS bit was a bit creepy and parts of the world may have wondered what on earth it was about! I especially loved the part where the Olympic rings raised and also the lighting of the Olympic flame. I thought the sound quality was really amazing for the sort of event it was as it so clear and loud. The only thing that I thought ruined it was Paul McCartney at the end, I thought his set was awful and out of tune, I wish they had just ended with the fireworks so it ended on a high (not that we got to see all of the from our TV). I bet the atmosphere in the stadium was electric, and around the Capital too. I love the British spirit around the UK at the moment, makes me wonder what we will have to celebrate next year!
I'd imagine that I will be doing an Olympic marathon of Olympic event watching over the next couple of weeks, I am looking forward to showing Alex some of events too-get him in early. He already has the makings of a weightlifter of shot putter at the rate he is growing and his build and strength! I am potty training again so it is a good excuse for me to be inside...the TV can just be on in the background to keep me sane ;)
Have a lovely weekend everyone, and get behind team GB and the Olympics it might not ever come back here in our lifetime after all! If you have tickets I am very jealous too!
