Next task....some photos...oops...no camera. Fear not as I am Mr Communication. So during the Games I will be lugging around;
- One times Blackberry
- One times HTC Smart phone thingy with a keyboard and touch screen.....get me (I can't use 99% of the functions but it is SMART!)
- One times iPad (ditto to Smart phone ref understanding it)
- One times Nokia phone....which apparently takes photos......
So I set off to capture images of the Village.........and my feeble attempts are far from Baileyisc...and trying to get them on to my laptop...that certainly caused my blood pressure to leap.
Back to my exhaustion and why it feels rather good; today I was Tour Guide for the eventing grooms....and they really caught the “Olympic spirit” bug. We avoided yesterday's arrival / departure issues by meeting at St Pancras and using the Javelin....VERY efficient. I think they enjoyed it...well let’s not mention the star spotting (male star spotting)....and then there was the photo sessions...and then the shopping; are you feeling my pain??? But it was a privilege to give these hard working and often unrecognised people a taste of the Village - there would be no Equestrian Team without Grooms.
So I sign off and leave you with proof as to why I will never make a photographer.......
