- Cam came back from yesterday's Closing Ceremony rehearsal covered in blue body paint.
- He has been rehearsing with some Very Famous People and is not remotely star-struck. I am though.
- I have finished my first crochet project. What started off as a blanket, morphed into a shawl, and then eventually ended up as a scarf - because I had become so bored with making Granny Squares. I love the final article though. Full details on Ravelry.
- Becoming a nurse means that I have to have a whole range of vaccinations. Most of these vaccinations require blood tests first, to see what levels of antibodies I have for those particular diseases.
- This means that I have been stuck full of needles today, and have loads more to come over the next month. I have a sore, bruised arm and am now very sympathetic towards patients who require endless blood tests and injections.
- I've made a rhubarb and orange cake today. It smells very good indeed.
- I've downloaded the Isles of Wonder soundtrack, and it is much better than the grumpy review in The Guardian would have you believe. It is quite wonderful in fact, and takes me back to the euphoria of the Opening Ceremony in an instant.
- I have been doing anatomy homework before I start University. Did you know that the proper, anatomical name for your big toe is hallux?
- We're off to the Olympic Park again tomorrow - this time to see a whole morning of athletics. Absolutely cannot wait. We will be seeing Mo Farah in the 5,000 m heats.
- I never saw Downton Abbey when it was on the tele. I have now got Series 1 from LoveFilm and can see what all the fuss was about. The costumes and the hair are quite as wonderful as Maggie Smith.

There's so much fizzing about my head at the moment.
