Last week like a lot of Londoners and the rest of Britain I was left feeling bereaved, like a sudden, exciting new love had come into my life offering new experiences, ventures, warm embraces, smiles and the occasional offerings of flowers and jewellery then as sudden as he had come into my life he had gone, I had woken up and he was no longer around to comfort me. I was shocked by how much I got into the Olympics and that I really enjoyed and got enthralled by lots of the sports, not just when Britain was competing (though these were the most nail biting and lip curling endured moments I will remember!) I really do think the Olympics have been amazing for our Country and the feelings of pride and togetherness was so palatable in the city.
Tonight brings the start of the Paralympics and I hope everyone get's behind the team and just as excited by this. It will definitely feel the 5 olympic ring sized holes left in our hearts and make them swell with pride. In so many ways the Paralympic athletes have had to go through so much heartache, adversity and gruelling training, yet they are amazing athletes, driven and determined. So much inspiration to be taken from the next week and a half.
