Neil Armstrong......

We woke the children in the middle of the night, my son was 2 and my daughter just a month old but we wanted to be able to tell them that they were there, when a man walked on the moon.

.......flash mob. This is a goody.

I love the effect it has on the children. Everyone wants to be a conductor.

......a good exhibition,  At the Crypt of St Martin's in the Fields, London, until 22nd September a superb display from the branches of the Embroiderers Guild.  Postcards to celebrate the countries taking part in the Summer Games.

Pure gold....

For the last two weeks I have cycled, run, jumped and swum.........  Now I must get off the settee and do some exercise.The Olympics are over.

  What a fortnight. From the spectacular Opening Ceremony
until the moment the flame went out.  We shouted in excitment and dashed away tears of joy. We marvelled at unbelievable stamina, strength and grace. We were amazed how quickly we became experts on sports we had never seen before. Medals apart, we won on every level.

One of the fascinations was watching the different reactions to winning and losing. A bronze medal produced sulks in some and smiles of pure joy in others.  A gold was celebrated with theatrical display or quiet pride.

One disappointment was that no one thought to make the Torch Relay Team part of the ceremonies, they did such a good job in all weathers in the ten weeks before the Games started. I hope they receive some form of recognition.
Well done London (and the rest of the country)


Right three weeks to tackle the ironing before the Paralympics begin.
