Yep, it’s here! Unless you’ve been living the life of a hermit, you’ll know that today sees the beginning of the 2012 Olympics. Will you be watching? I must admit, I’ve been a bit underwhelmed up until now (and I still am a little— I want to be really excited, but I’m just not!), so I’m hoping Danny Boyle will have really pulled it out of the bag with tonight’s opening ceremony.
We missed the torch relay coming through our hometown, so I ventured to the place where I was born, to see the torch pass through (as well as do a little shopping!) I didn’t have the best view, but me and Byron caught a glimpse of the flame, so at least I can tell him that he saw it, when he’s older! I don’t know what I really expected to happen, but it was over in a flash and enjoyable, but also a bit of an anti-climax. (Judging by the response I got to a similar tweet, I think other towns may have done it better!)
Here’s a little snippet of the action!
I actually really enjoyed making that video and already have some plans for some more. Venturing into the world of Youtube is a little scary, but I’m going to do it! Please let me know if you have any video requests.
