London 2012 {Part 1}

Thursday, 9 August 2012

Warning: this a non craft post, and it is ALL about the Olympics!

So in case you have not noticed (you may have never been on my blog), I am really into the Olympics, not as much as Mr MiH, of course, but pretty hooked nonetheless. Let's not talk about Team France's performance however. I will support my team whatever happens, but seriously we need some gold medals here and now! Moving on.. Last Sunday, I had the opportunity to visit the Olympic Park and here are some snaps for those of you who may not have the chance to visit it!

We are off to the Olympic Stadium again on Saturday - and this time, we are going in! Hope to get some good pictures of the athletics finals!
