Such fantastic memories.

The 'it's such a perfect day' bit started me off blush

MrsVamos Mon 10-Sep-12 14:14:01

Oh, I know, it's sooo emotive. I feel very proud today, of everyone.

Thought C4 did a fab job of the Paralympic coverage.

Gutted for the people who are working and children at school who are missing this.

They should be playing the "flame" (you all know what I mean) music.

Love the mounted police high fiving children in the crowd.

MrsVamos Mon 10-Sep-12 14:24:32

OMG it is sheeting it down here (SE not far from London). Hope it isn't going the Parade's way, they'll all get soaked !

I like the lions.

paRaahhlympiansgoingforgold Mon 10-Sep-12 14:48:32

must be an amazing feeling on those floats. See, this is what we want. The athletes- not 3 hours of coldplay!

MrsVamos Mon 10-Sep-12 14:49:25

Completely concur, Raahh.

They are all amazing.

Zara is lovely.

Just got back to work from the parade. my boss insisted we all went (she really wanted to go) so we had prime spots right opposite the start at mansion house. Saw all our gold medalists - loved Chris Hoy - he looked overwhelmed by the crowd.

MrsVamos Mon 10-Sep-12 14:50:35

I want to see it all again.
