Normal service, whatever that may be...

We are home. Two weeks of great activity in Cornwall and Surrey, and we're back to the dirty oven and the rest! Here is the inanimate contingent of the increasingly excited Olympic Supporters Society of Strawberry Land. Covered in stickers from today's Sunday Times. Gave us ten minutes for our weekly dose of Mrs Mills and A. A. Gill.

Also covered in felt-tip, because what else is there to do in a car for nine hours while your parents plot a cross-country route that avoids the re-surfacing of the M6 and just gets you to the ferry on time! Thank you, Stena, for letting us on, and thank you, Jesus, that we weren't being air-lifted to the nearest hospital from a winding Scottish road. Prayers for the motor cyclist.

From the day we spent in London, I'm imagining that the fuss over normal serivce in the capital is all it's cracked up to be! Bon courage, Londres!

Well, all I can say is lucky the Suns didn't have the other 3 along for the ride or they would be all covered in felt-tip too.!! Yikes 9 hours is a long way. Hope you get some "me time", actually "fairy time" would be the best..in the next week or two! I have madly "liked" Rend Collective on youtube...what a fab!!!!! song & clip....love it!! Thanks!! Good excuse to play it again when Rob comes home & we can dance around the living room. Much love Catherine x0x0x

Ah, a winding Scottish road. Sounds lovely. Not for me, of course, as I get carsick easily. Nine hours in the car, eh? I'm tired and cranky just thinking about it.

Happy Olympics! Can't wait for the obsession to begin.

How will anything be "normal" during the Olympics? My daughter and I were in the UK back in 2005 and I remember seeing posters all around London that said, "Back the Bid." In fact, I think my daughter still has one of those.
