..... this would be an Olympic free zone....but.... oh the opening ceremony was wonderfully bonkers and British! Not sure how well it will translate to countries that are unfamiliar with British culture, but I loved it: the quirkiness, the humour and wit, I was singing along to all the pop songs - THAT was MY history. Tee Hee! And the final part was wonderful. I had gone to bed earlier (can't stand the pace!) and was hoping that the copper things the children were carrying alongside the athletes were copper kettles and there would be a nice cup of tea for everyone at the end. Now that WOULD be British
If you haven't seen the opening ceremony and don't want it to be spoiled don't look at these clips. But they are two of my favourite clips!
Good evening Mr Bond
Mr Bean's Olympic Orchestral appearance
Loved the NHS/Great Ormand Street Sequence. We love our NHS :-)
A very British Ceremony!
Now it's back to the sport and I shall probably tune out for most of it, so good luck everyone. See you at the closing ceremony maybe! Meanwhile back on Graemsay the sun is shining! Oh yes and I have work to do....
