Just be thankful you don't live here in the West End near Hyde Park. Very few people around the shops either - usually their busiest time.
Roads up - noise - helicopters driving us mad - hopefully, I have put a stop to that!! Hovering above us for half-an-hour and the flat shaking -not on!! I took action (have tried before though) but 20 secs after my phone call to the police, they flew off and then just flew round. That's not so bad. Roads closed and empty Zil lanes!!
I think they should be held in Greece every four years. They need the money and already have the facilities standing there doing nothing!!
We couldn't get any tickets - only met one Londoner with tickets and he had them for the Opening Ceremony and four other events. How unfair is that? Has cost us £1000 each out of our London Council Tax and few of us have tickets!!
I enjoyed Mr. Bean, the Queen and giggled at Beckham thinking he was the bees knees in his motorboat!!
The Olympic flame cannot be seen in the Park unless you have athletic tickets. Ridiculous!! Also not impressed with the helter skelter - sorry the rather peculiar structure by Anish Kupoor called the Orbit.
Stadium looks lovely lit up at night though.
However, its really all about the sports and now the nonsense is out of the way, I can enjoy the sports. But I just don't feel its worth the billions its cost and in no way will be recouped!!
Sorry to be such a pessimist - but spending billions and elderly dying because £110 per week can't pay rent, food and heating!!
