Mine will also miss first day back tomorrow as we have athletics tickets! 2 days in the first week might be a bit much BUT it is a once-in-a-lifetime thing and they have got so much out of the Games. I am SO tempted, its only the scary headteacher that is putting me off if I'm honest
You are persuading me! I think we are so lucky to live in London and be close to all of this amazing stuff, I want my dd to grow up feeling a part of it all and being proud to live here, and like you say, it's a once in a lifetime event.
I'm thinking about going to the parade.. but I have no idea what time I should be thinking about getting there for.. I know it's going to be crazy busy, but to get a good spot (at the front would be nice) what sort of time do you think I need to get there for? As early as 8am? earlier? or later? Think it starts at 1.30pm.
I've just tweeted MOL Presents to find out if the Mascots will still be there Monday for the parade - as the last day for them is meant to be Sunday. So we can go on a Mascot hunt if we don't get to see much of the parade.
I have no idea how busy it's going to be. Most people will be at work or school, but will people be be taking time off, or popping out on their lunchbreaks? The earliest we can get there straight from school is about 12.30pm.
