My new favourite colour......

I have been beyond excited about the Olympics these past two weeks.

Of course we know them all by their first names, and are up to speed on the rules of sports we had  hardly heard of two weeks ago!
London 2012 has been a huge success-I hope you agree.
And we have been so proud of our sportsmen and women.
Is there time to squeeze in a little more Gold?......
