flashingnose Wed 06-Jul-05 11:40:15

RTKangaMummy Wed 06-Jul-05 11:40:37

Will hate to loose to the French

wouldn't mind loosing to anyone else but .............

Fingers crossed for London. It would be something truly spectacular to take the children to when they are older.

PiccadillyCircus Wed 06-Jul-05 11:41:05

On BBC website it says decision expected at 12:46.

Sounds quite precise .

The link has quite amusing countdown comments.

QueenOfQuotes Wed 06-Jul-05 11:41:28

12.46 - pAH I'm going to miss the announcement - have to drop DS1 at nursery at 12.45 - will have to wait 15 minutes to find out ARGHHH

flashingnose Wed 06-Jul-05 11:41:29

It could be one of the best things that's happened to this country in modern times...if we let it.

Lizzylou Wed 06-Jul-05 11:41:48

I think Paris will get it...but hope we do...

Manchester was fab during the Commonwealth games, a real buzz...I would love to take family down to London to watch some of the games...

RTKangaMummy Wed 06-Jul-05 11:42:41

So everyone will come in to watch the announcement

QueenOfQuotes Wed 06-Jul-05 11:42:49

at least if we do 'lose' it - Paris won't be too far to take the kids either

flashingnose Wed 06-Jul-05 11:42:57

Ah but we have David Beckham

teeavee Wed 06-Jul-05 11:43:18

ETKM!!!!! Quelle horreur!
Personally, I'm fed up of all the hype already - and there's 7 more years to go!
The media/news coverage here in France has been huge - and I think they would really hate to lose it to the English too!!!

I vote for New York

RTKangaMummy Wed 06-Jul-05 11:43:39

will be at 7.30pm singapore time
