Let the Olympic Games begin!

OK, so the first Olympic event *may* have been on Wednesday - Women's Football: Great Britain vs. New Zealand; GB won! - but we're all saying that *today* is when the Olympic Games actually begin and tonight the Opening Ceremony proves just that!

That's tonight though, but yesterday it was the Coca-Cola Olympic Torch Relay Finale Concert at Hyde Park, celebrating (almost) the final leg of the Torch Relay. The sun was glorious, we listened to some great music acts - Rizzle Kicks were my favourite - drank some free Coca-Cola, Boris made an appearance ... oh, and we saw the final torchbearer (although it still has to get to the Olympic Stadium and was at Hampton Court Palace this morning, so not quite sure how he was the last torchbearer, but anyway!). Olympic fever is definitely in the air!

Will you be watching the Opening Ceremony tonight, and are you going to any of the events? I'll be at the Beach Volleyball (Olympics) and the Athletics (Paralympics) - it's going to be awesome! {^_^} x
