Olympic journey

I am very, very lucky. I got a ticket to the technical rehersal for the Olympic Games opening ceremony.

I've got a golden ticket
I live just a few stops away from the Olympic Park on the Overground so thought I'd document my way to the games and the park around the stadium to give those of you who can't make it a taster of it which will be a little different to what you might see on TV.

I'm part of #savethesurprise so I'm not sharing any photos of inside the stadium and what I saw (which is most excellent and I hope will do London and the UK proud)

I did spot some knitters, but that includes spoilers, so you'll have to wait to hear about that. It's exciting to hear how many knitters I know are involved in one way or another.

Anyway, here's the slide show. Enjoy!

Dead impressed how many people did keep the secret - a colleague went to that rehearsal and said "It's going to be awesome but I can't tell you anything else..." I've loved wandering around London over the last couple of weeks - it's all been so friendly and organised and fun...
