And that's it all over....yes, I know, huge expense, many people didn't give a monkeys (including me until I got proper sucked in to Olympicmania), yadda, yadda, yes, yes, I know....

BUT I am wafting about in my kitchen listening to the soundtrack from the opening ceremony (judge ye not) wearing fluffy slippers, the heating on and it's bloody sodding dark outside...

I am in mourning for the those halcyon early summer days of joy and happiness and people smiling and being positive and watching the news eager for lovely, happy celebratory things...

No? Just me? I'll get me coat (it's cold enough)...

Not just you, I'm right there with you.

I have got to the point today of collecting all the Olympic and Paralympic stuff up together and it's ready to go in the loft. sad

I'm with you too. I really enjoyed watching the Olympics and the Paralympics. The children were really interested and enthusiastic too. I miss it.

I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. We watched something every night and after the Paralympics finished it was back to the same old rubbish on tv.

I loved it and have kept the Olympic spirit alive by taking up running - couch to 5k programme - its great fun smile

It was flipping brilliant.

Have also been packing stuff away.

Luckily I've had DC1 starting school to take my mind off things, or I'd have been a sobbing wreck ever since.

I know how you feel - felt really sad when the Olympics ended and then again when the Paralympics finished. Was a very magical time for the country. Keep watching bits of the opening ceremony on You Tube, sob
