A marvellous display of a bittersweet life

Beautiful London skies

The Olympics is sadly coming to an end soon and what an amazing time it’s been!? More on that later but what’s also been really fantastic is the wonderful weather we’ve had throughout this time. People who always say Britain is grey and wet all the time, was proven wrong this time! We experienced some gloriously sunny and warm days which worked out perfect for the Olympics so I think it’s safe to say our sunshine arrived with the Games (perhaps the torch light from Greece had something to do with it!).

It is estimated that approximately 27 million people in the UK alone watched the Opening Ceremony which makes it the 13th most watched programme in British TV history. I paid a visit to one of London’s most famous streets or “shopping heaven” as more commonly known on Saturday and it was clear as daylight that Olympics fever has struck again!
