Then there was the actual Olympics which isn't going to be happening in this country in my life time again (or until I'm very old if lucky!) Granted, I only watched it live on my television but I still felt a part of something. If I was there it would've been the most incredible atmosphere but everything and everyone would've been tiny little dots whereas on my TV I saw every little detail. I felt truly proud to be British on that day.
Then tonight, well there was only word for what I was watching live on TV tonight and that is: WOW.
Felix Baumgartner has skydived 24 miles from Earth and it was AMAZING. My heart was thumping watching him go down, especially when he started to turn a bit. He landed like he had just done a run of the mill skydive and not a record breaking jump!
They are appalling quality photos but hey, I have those photos now and with them the memory of history in the making.
