FOUR YEARS AGO TODAY!

The opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics took place! But I was in Ottawa at the time, just starting my diplomatic posting. I remember it all so well and my mixed emotions:
  1. β€’
    Pride!
    For my hometown
  2. β€’
    Hilarity!
    HM The Queen joining James Bond - O M Goodness, Daniel Craig: please kiss MEEEEE!
  3. β€’
    Nostalgia!
    The Spice Girls!!! Every woman every girl SPICE UP YOUR LIFE!
  4. β€’
    Sadness...
    That I was missing all the fun... 😒
  5. β€’
    Anticipation..!
    For a fantastic competition of sports! πŸŠπŸΎπŸπŸΈπŸ“πŸš΄πŸΎ
