Slarty , I suggested to DS (8) that he might like to go in later. He said no because he wants "to show off to my friends". Charming. hmm

Can't believe it is all over torch sad.

We had a brilliant time and were lucky enough to see 8 events. Memories for life and a generation inspired.

Ds was hugely lucky to meet the GB wheelchair basketball team and the GB swimming team (and managed to wear two medals!). I was amazed at how approachable and friendly everyone was, happy to share their time with an enthusiastic 8 yr old who had no fear in asking them loads of questions about their various disabilities.

Just before he tottered off to bed, DH said "I suppose we will either have to start talking to each other again or take up scrabble now!"
I love DH very much but still............

we were there - with the kids - it was fabulous! we missed various bits (guess you can't see it all from every angle) but the music, those trucks, all the fire and the fireworks - just amazing.

spent large chunks of the night trying not to blub - very emotional seeing all the athletes and then realising that that really is it.

sadly can't make the parade today - but will be watching on tv..... (with dd who is shattered so school have agreed she can come home this afternnoon!!)
