My son and I had a chat on the phone this morning - he lives in East London and works in Euston - his journey to work was quick with no evidence of any problems on the underground.Around the Olympic Park colleague "gamesmakers" were also reflecting in the glow of Transport for London who seem to have delivered really well on the first weekday of the Games - this is really good news.Many of us were really concerned about how the network would cope with both regular commuters and those visiting Stratford. I have taken to going to West Ham and walking into the Park, going that way its probably a bit longer but avoids the Westfield Shopping experience which I do find a bit over-powering - also as its about a mile to walk it makes me feel that my two way hike is helping to keep me fit - the true spirit of the Olympic Games. Lets hope I can keep this up.

It was an early start - 5.00am - although the Olympic Park is not too far from where I am staying and the start time was 8.00am I was very unsure as to where to go,hence the early start. But you know, when you set your alarm for that sort of time ,as the night goes on, you wake up constantly awaiting the big blast - so I am not sure about how much sleep I had. But - it was a lovely sunny clear morning when I arrived ,everything looked bright colourful particularly the wild flower bedding. The number of people buzzing around on a Sunday morning was also a suprise particularly the large number of volunteers - like me- dressed in red,grey & purple.
