I was there, standing on the steps of St Paul's in my lunchbreak. Saw Mo doing a Mobot, Rebecca Adlington pointing to Ellie Simmonds and mouthing "IT'S ELLIE!" to the crowd in mock amazement, Tom Daley grinning like a cheshire cat and taking pictures on his Blackberry. Amazing atmosphere, amazing athletes, amazing games. smile

wouldn't it be cool, if at the end of this there was a little street party with jelly? and wee hats. Lots left over from the Jubilee.

Where's Wenlock and Mandeville??

I usually walk to and from school, but for once I have the car today so am going to use it to save time and hopefully get back to see the end!!

Just got back to the office from watching the parade, what an incredible atmosphere. I suppose I should now delete my Olympics app, but I'm in denial.
