It's been seven years; and I have to admit to not being as excited about the Olympics this morning as I was when I sat watching the announcement that London would host in 2012.
But thanks to Danny Boyle's wonderfully amazingly stonkingly fab
opening ceremony I am now ecstatically excited again. How great a job did he do! Pardon our doubts.
On Tuesday Mike, Rachel and I get to be a part of it. We get to watch an Olympic event, weightlifting; introduce Rachel to the excitement that is live sport; and take part in a once a lifetime experience.
We are ready
and can't wait to go.
Good luck team GB.
Good luck everyone.
It's all about the taking part, enjoy every second.
