Sequins and Arm Candy at London 2012
Although I have scheduled all my posts for the summer, I had to squeeze in the pictures from our long weekend in London to see the Olympics!
Cable car over the river linking the Olympic park with other venues. Not good if you don't like heights (like me), though I still make myself do these things...!
Women's table tennis (I got the best shot before it started)
Men's weightlifting - the crowd noise was deafening...!
I saw the announcement live on TV seven years when London won the Olympics bid - and I told Mr. Summers straight away that I wanted to go in 2012... this weekend I finally got my wish! All I can say is that we had the most fantastic time - the organisation was amazing, the Olympics volunteers were just great and the whole atmosphere was everything I hoped it'd be. We managed to get tickets for table tennis and weightlifting, so didn't get to go into the stadium or the velodrome (my only regret), but we did watch several gold medals being won by team GB on the big screen in the pub next door to the Excel Arena. Needless to say it was loud, entertaining, and so, so memorable.
Oh not forgetting! I wore sneaks for comfort, light layers for sun and rain, and a sequinned collar so I'd have my own gold bling around my neck ;)
Happy weekend everyone!
