We have bunting to celebrate.
I am not usually that interested in sport but over the last 12 days, I have become enthralled with all the effort and endeavour. The enthusiasm of the sportspeople is infectious and it also helps that mr digandweed is himself keen on running and has been limbering up in case a last minute replacement is needed for Mo Farrow.
What is so refreshing is that the medal winners seem such 'normal' people, despite their superhuman achievements.
London looks wonderful too as we see cyclists and runners whizzing past on the television and even the weather is behaving itself. For a few days, bad news has been suspended and the best side of human nature celebrated.
We screamed together as a family on Super Saturday as we watched Jessica Ennis, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farrow win their gold medals ......
and today dancing-girl and mr lovesclassiccars are off to London to see the athletics tonight. I reminded them to wave so we can see them in the crowd on the telly!!
