How was it for us?

What do you think?


  1. Pretty amazing I would say!!!! :)
    Nice to be able to say 'I was there'!
    I think those gold post boxes were a brilliant idea. Just love the lego stadium. :)
    Happy new week Kate,

  2. I loved it - watched all sorts of sports and enjoyed them all and I'm the least sporty person ever.

    Caught up on the closing ceremony this weekend - enjoyed that too.

    Would love to see one of the gold postboxes - I hope they stay gold forever :)

  3. The gold post box is so cool, I miss the Olympics, we were totally gripped!

  4. oh how sad - wish they stayed Gold forever! Loved the Olympics and all really missing it now! x

  5. I take it you had a good time? Love the Lego stadium and we have a gold postbox nearby in Sherborne - I did wonder how long they would remain gold.

  6. What a fabulous set of pictures to add to your memories - it certainly was a hit all round.

  7. I watched the edited highlights of the opening ceremony on Saturday and wished it was all about to start again.

    The gold postboxes are a brilliant idea. By the way, there's a VR postbox outside the catherdral in Worcester -much older :-)

  8. Oh I squealed when I saw this post pop up in my reader! Your photos are wonderful and capture the spirit and excitement so well. I read about the gold postboxes, I am so glad you included a photo of one and the lego too! I suspect it was just epic.

  9. Cor - look at those lenses.

    It was fun and tiring all rolled into one - we haven't had that much sport in our house since well....forever.

    They did do good though.

    Have a week full of fun.

  11. Without a television it was hard to watch since online viewing requires a television passcode. Anyhow, I did go to a friends to see the opening ceremonies and 2 nights of gymnastics. Can I just say that it was just AMAZING to have London host the olympics!!! Loved the opening ceremonies and loved every bit I got to see and hear about how things went. Grand job UK!

  12. Wonderful set of pictures....it all worked so well, didn't it? I loved the opening ceremony :) Looks like you had an amazing time there, Kate.....such a lot of special memories!

  15. A wonky golden letter box- fantastic! Looks like you had fun watching too!

  16. Hi Kate..I don't really know what the cubes are, I think probably just bread dough in different colours..white and wholemeal..and it is just kneaded a special way and put in the tins in a particular fashion...it's quite an amazing effect isn't it? I reckon all of the colours used at the olympics made a great show. What a fantastic experience.


There's nothing like a comment to stop me feeling like I'm talking to myself. If you leave one here I'll pop one back here too, so don't forget to come back and continue the conversation ..
