I can't tell you how proud I am of my hometown, London, right now. I'm walking with a extra spring in my step, my back a little straighter and chin a little higher. The Cycling Road Race came through my village this morning and it was quite a thrill to watch the bikes, cars and helicopters pass my window and my TV screen simultaneously. My sister has been texting me from the Olympic Park all day (she's there with my nieces) and her messages about the swimming, the big screen and over-priced fish and chips have been stuffed full of exclamation marks!!! And what about that Opening Ceremony? A mash-up of ALL my fave music plus Mary Poppins, Voldemort, Her Maj and live sheep! Perfect crazy London awesomeness!
