Bronze (3/16)



  1. Was at the park for the opening this morning. I think the place is fabulous. Loads for kids to do, and amazing world class sporting venues available for public use. I have swimming lessons at the Aquatics Centre and it's very inspiring.
  2. There have been a lot of good bargains in the London 2012 Shop at the Stratford branch of John Lewis lately. Mascots for £1/£2, and massive reductions on lots of items. Got a set of London Skyline glass blocks yesterday for £3 each (think they were about £35 originally). The shop is very depleted now but they say new stuff is arriving all the time (probably clearing stock from all the other branches) so well worth a look if you're in the area.
  3. Came back here to see what had been happening over the last few months only to discover its still just the 'Baron' being rude to everyone. Nothing changes.
  4. Bought the singing/dancing Wenlock in Argos today for £3.99, a big discount on the original price of £39.99! Also, for anyone near a branch of The Entertainer, they have some great deals on mascots of various sizes.
  5. Ah, in the Olympic Park! Excellent :-) I cannot wait for July 2013 when Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park opens. Will be brilliant to have such an amazing and significant place on my doorstep.
  6. The three-wheeled yellow van at the start of the show is a vehicle from the classic British comedy 'Only Fools & Horses' starring David Jason. One episode, which is now iconic, featured the main stars in fancy dress as Batman and Robin... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYBd7999qqo&feature=youtube_gdata_player
  7. Yes, it's the London Eye. Took this photo today from the Orbit:
  8. Have to admit that I'm very excited about seeing the Spice Girls on Sunday! :-)
  9. I'd say most of the general public don't even care about the Winter Olympics, so I doubt they'll ever get excited about youth games.
  10. Have never heard of the Youth Olympic Games, and I doubt most people have.
  11. That is my worry (well, that and the rain!) I really hope the cauldron isn't a damp squib (in all respects!)
  12. Oh my God, I walked over that little iron bridge years ago when I went on a walk to see the old Big Breakfast house. I find it almost impossible to compare the image of that area then with how it is now. Don't think I've ever (or will ever) experience such a transformation of a place.
