I'm assuming 99% of people reading my blog will have watched the Olympics. It was breathtaking! Record smashed and the best bit? It was literally down the road, urmm 30 minutes in the car?

Lastly, why are the Paralympics separate, in my opinion it should be one giant extravaganza. I don't know so much about training and fitness really, but wouldn't it be better if it was all produced together and allowed the Athletes some time in between heats and finals, to have a little rest or train? That way they all get the same amount of press too.
The new flag hoisted over 10 Downing street and the new logo raised had such little noise, I didn't even know they were a symbol of the Paralympics? I want to hear more, see more and feel it as big a part and of summer 2012!

The opening ceremony was AMAZING. Brilliant choreography for the history of Britain. Sir Paul McCartney, if I may say, brought an excellent performance to the table. It really felt like a classic british panto with the crowed participation. And Bean?! Fucking fantastic! Danny Boyle
I bow my hat to you sir, great job.
Although my only bug was the musical section, in which there was some love story between two youths my age prancing around texting? To other Countries it must have seemed they were just being rude, haha! It was pretty hard to follow. The house didn't make much sense and some of the music was not Britain's best! For me I wanted some more Welsh! The likes of Shirley Bassy and Tom Jones, thats not unusual?

P.S - Queen you rocked that sky dive!
Working for the Olympics was a fantastic opportunity, I literally met people from around the world - Australia, Nigeria, South Africa, Japan, Mexico, America. I couldn't get tickets as they were either sold out or too expensive. So my personal ticket to the games.... pour some pints! Oh yes, Heineken all day, everyday. The punters loved it and I stank of it! There was beer flowing, food everywhere and even Sushi on Japanese match days! Talk about hosting!

Walking to the changing room, rushing past all the people trying to leave the stadium we began to regret staying behind. The tube was going to be packed and it had already been a long days graft! But upon signing out we had the biggest buzz! Everyone was cheering, singing (some pissed slurring) but it was amazing. We looked down at the thousands deep queue we let ourselves into, stepped back got the mini
