The time has come, can you believe it? At last the London 2012 Olympics is finally here…well later this year anyway, but this year!
The excitement is mounting at The Ana Mum Diary house, and it’s almost at fever pitch with all the arrangements.
Now you see, I’m not actually going, our youngest being only 2. We thought she would be too young to appreciate it, so I shall stay home with her.
However Tall Dad and Miss N (9) are going to have a father and daughter weekend together, they are both so excited!
The plans so far are that they, are going to stay over in a hotel, do a spot of shopping, and take in a show in the West End. I believe Shrek is the favourite at the moment. Culminating in going to watch Volleyball at Earls Court. This was one of the sports that Miss N requested that she would love to see. So she was thrilled when we managed to get tickets to see it.
Am I jealous? Well a little! I do think that it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Olympics in your own country. However, I also think that this will be such an amazing thing for Tall Dad and Miss N to do together. The planning alone has been so exciting for them. I can’t imagine what they are going to be like once they actually go!
The atmosphere, even the Mexican waves, you can’t help but get wrapped up in the emotions of it all. What a fabulous way to lift the spirits of the country!
There is even going to huge screens in something called London Live, in places like Trafalgar Square, Victoria and Hyde Park where you can catch all the sporting action for free!
Miss A has not been left out though, she already has her very own mascot, a Wenlock that she sleeps with at night, so everyone’s happy!
