Olympic Spectacle

Wow! What a fabulous Opening Ceremony! An amazing celebration which made me feel so proud to be British, and got the hairs on the back of the neck standing up! I loved the James Bond segment, good on you, Ma'am! And the petal flame finale was fantastic! No-one does it quite like us with our quirky sense of humour for all-round entertainment.

More opportunity to get patriotic again.

Time to crack open the souvenir biscuits from M&S

Here are the lovely things from Shazronnie for the Jubilee Swapsie; super card and yoyo brooch.

Sharon made this fab shopping bag from a pillowslip, and I just added some beads for the occasion.

Union Jack-ed up my pudding this evening

Nice cup of Earl Grey to finish, again thanks to Shazronnie for this sweet trio. Beautiful gifts! Check out the things I sent to her on her blog:!

Enjoy the Games! Go Team GB!!

  6. I've loved reading your posts and catching up on London's news. The hats on the statues is an inspired idea, and I've loved seeing your photos of them. I am thoroughly enjoying the olympics and think team GB has done an amazing job. My dad is from London and I love spending time there. One of my all-time favourite cities. Thanks for your great posts. Em ♥
