Olympic Opening

What I loved, for future record: the rising of the chimneys, complete with steeplejacks; the forging of the  five rings; the Glastonbury Tor; Artic Monkeys and the winged cyclists; the nods to Barrie, Brunel and Berners-Lee; NHS centre stage; Team GB coming out to Bowie’s Heroes (though this will always remind me of a now-deleted Miracle of Istanbul clip); the music (GB tops the medal table in this category); the moment just before the Queen turned round; the moment the Queen turned round; the idea and execution of the petals/cauldron; youth lighting the flame, rather than one historical figure. It was brilliant.

Closer to home, Rae was asleep by 7.30pm and slept in her own bed (no cot sides) for the very first time.
