As if I am not busy enough getting my sewing tea parties ready for the Jubilee I can proudly and perhaps madly announce that I am officially to be part of the Olympics. I am a Games Maker and will be based at The Olympic stadium. I now have my City and Guilds in 'Understanding Stewarding at Spectator events' I have been given my shifts and will be at both the opening and closing ceremonies. If a hundred people go home saying that I was helpful, pleasant and smilely I will have made my Country proud!!!!! The uniformis like getting your first brownie one, I have bags, socks, unmbrellas, jacket, shirts, a hat, and finally beige pants !!!!!!!!!! i have been on a diet , lost 1.5 stone just in case they make me carry a flag and I am on prime time TV across the world in those trousers!!!!!!
