My favourite line from the movie Cool Runnings sums up the atmostphere in London today perfectly.
Yesterday at work we had a charity cake bake competition with an Olympic theme. Our team won with our fabulous (if I do say so myself) Olympic Village.
The Aquatics Centre - some kind of strange medly relay event by the looks of it!
Athletics at the Olympic stadium
Weighlifting at the ExCeL centre
Gymnastics at North Greenwich Arena
The whole village complete with one of two inexplicably ugly games mascots.
Also adding to the excitement yesterday was the torch relay passing right past my work. I got lots of pictures but didn't manage to get one of the actual torch. Slightly gutted - although I think about 100 workmates would have got snaps too.
Am looking forward to settling down to watch the Opening Ceremony tonight. I haven't planned any Ravelry (whatever we are allowed to call it) knitting for the period but I'm pretty sure a few knits and purls will get done.
