*We follow a rigorous blog schedule, as you may have noticed: ignore the blog for two months, then churn out four or five posts, then forget about the blog again. The most astute among you will have registered that we are in the middle of our tri-monthly (does that imply three times a month, or once every three months? This is in that tricky basket with bi-annual...) blogging frenzy, and we still have a couple more posts to go back to after this one. Lucky you!

On our way home, we began to see groups of people streaming down a road, this soon grew to crowds of people, and we then realised that they were gathering to see the Torch Relay (Got it right that time). We decided to follow the crowds, in the hope of seeing the
Olym Flame. What we didn't bargain on was being right in the thick of the action! We had to stop our car and wait for about 15 minutes, but soon we found ourselves in the middle of the O-citement!
O-fever has arrived!! And only 3 more sleeps until the O-pening Ceremony! And only one more week until we get to watch our first sporting event! Aaaannd, the sun has come out!! 29 degrees yesterday and today, and heading for 30 tomorrow!! (I love the person who invented the exclamation mark!)
