On Saturday, Olympics 2012 were kind enough to organise the world’s biggest party for me; so kind – it was my birthday. The thing that was really lovely was that everyone I met all day were in such a good mood. Watching the opening ceremony in the evening with friends was a real delight, together with worldwide birthday messages.
Month’s ago I had applied for Olympic tickets and not succeeded, then a few weeks ago John Lewis asked me to enter their draw and I won 2 tickets for the Rowing today. Well what a treat, I am truly grateful for. The venue was lovely, the organisation immaculate, the Gamesmaster volunteers a delight – I have never met such a happy group of people and they aren’t even being paid. The free shuttle from Slough station was amazing, no waiting, well organised and shuttle buses as far as they eye could see.
To top it all we were at Eton Dorney, to see several british rowers excel and qualify for the finals. Then the first british gold medal from 2 delightful girl rowers – the first ever girls to win a british rowing medal. The rain stayed away and then there was another bronze from the men’s 8s.
I can’t believe what a lovely day today was and by the time we were home there were more medals from the time trials and the amazing Bradley Wiggins gold.
We are truly blessed to have the Olympics in 2012 and we are doing a great job – thank you.
