(I don’t understand why this blogger jumbled up all my recent posts!)


We loved the Olympics, and am so pleased we got tickets.  It was certainly, what my sister would call “an event that makes memories”.

We attended the swimming and loved it.  The stadiums were great, the crowds lovely and volunteers who worked at the Olympics were absolutely fantastic – so incredibly friendly and helpful.  You could tell they really cared about being there.


This is the aquatic centre, where the swimming was hosted from the outside.

Even the fast foods were good.  We expected only McDonalds at inflated prices.  However, there were a range of foods available (including healthy options) and at ordinary prices.

We loved the fact that they even had fruit stalls!
