We had SUCH a fabulous time! One gold, one silver... seriously p-ed off we didn't get to see Aled's medal ceremony though!

Dammit, we had tickets and couldn't go, so sold them on to friends. Good, was it?

Yes, we were there! It was a shame not to have the medal ceremony, wasn't it? So glad to see a British gold though!

I'm sure they could have slotted it in at the ned of the session if they'd tried smile

It was good, Purple. The atmosphere was fabulous - especially when the GB athletes were competing.

My hands still hurt from clapping! grin

Yes I was there with ds1 ds2 and baby ds3 - my first time in an athletics stadium and I loved it! We were right next to the long jump, and got a great view of Aled's lap of honour. Fantastic morning! Wish I could go again.

Ooh we were right next to the long jump too, block 237. It was fab to see the inside of the stadium for real. I was there with 2-year-old DS who spent most of the time lying on the floor by my feet playing with his cars, but at least he can say he was there!

I am going again (with my mum, without DS) on Saturday night for the final night of athletics - can't wait!

We were the opposite end to the cauldron with the big screen to our right smile

We were there. Right above the cauldron. Amazing wasn't it.
We also had evening tickets do saw Aled Davies get his medal. I might have got a bit emotional.

Ooo I was in block 134! So probably just below you! Wish I could go without the DSs. Have a fantastic saturday night!
