At the Olympics!

Hi everyone! 

Hope you are all enjoying London 2012.  Last Sunday me and the crew were lucky enough to go to the Olympic football at Old Trafford (for overseas visitors that is the home of Manchester United).  What an awesome time we had!!  I am a big football fan, and when I discovered that we would be watching Brazil my excitement was unbounded (having been a huge fan of theirs since the 1970 World Cup - I was only 10 at the time, but still remember it really well).  So it was up bright and early and off to Manchester!

On arrival at the ground it was extremely busy - we had to go through a bag search (it felt a bit like being at the airport).  It was cool to see the Olympic rings on the outside of the stadium

and once inside we were delighted to see that DH had got us brilliant tickets with a fab view of the whole ground!  Here are the flags flying proudly

The matches were Egypt v New Zealand and then Brazil v Belarus.  Here are a few pics of the action:

All in all a fab day out!  The organisers really have done us proud, well done to you all!!  This past week has been so excited, team GB have really pulled out all the stops for the country - have just watched another rowing crew get a gold, and Im keeping my fingers crossed for Francesca Ennis for later on today.

Enjoy a great weekend of sport!
