Olympic fever

London 2012 Olympic Instagram photos - Tower Bridge, Wembley Stadium, Wembley Park underground

As I walked to work through Camden on Friday morning I realised I’d finally got caught up in the Olympic fever – I’d subconsciously adorned myself in red, white and blue.  I’ve surprised myself by really getting into the spirit and my excitement is only increasing as we’re starting to win some medals – yay Team GB!

I caught the latter-half of the opening ceremony after my trip to the Zoo and felt quite emotional watching it all over again on Saturday morning (admittedly, slightly hungover).  I don’t know whether my favourite part was James Bond collecting the Queen from Buckingham Palace or David Beckham looking super-gorgeous as he delivered the torch down the Thamesby speedboat (alongside the also gorgeous Jessica Ennis).

On Sunday I slapped on my Union Jack Violent Lips to go to Wembley to see our men’s football team beat the UAE 3-1.  Fingers crossed I’ll be able to attend some curbside events but if not I’ll still show my support from a pub or two!  Have you caught Olympic fever?  Or are you just counting down until the whole thing is over?!

    I’ve caught Olympic fever too – but it’s hard to keep up, with the timezones this time. Personally, my favourite part of the Opening Ceremony was Mr Bean!
