Emma's coming over bright and early at 5am tomorrow morning to watch the Olympic Opening Ceremony with me. I'm setting up camp in the living room complete with quilts and pillows and she's under strict instructions to still be in her pjs when she gets here.
No frills at that hour of the morning! I might be able to muster some bling earrings for the occasion though . . .
I've cooked sweetcorn fritters tonight and have treats at the ready for a lazy morning on the couch - ham and cheese croissants, toasted turkish pide with peanut butter, smoked ocean trout and chorizo to go with the fritters, then of course a sweet finish with Donna Hay blueberry muffins and scones with jam and cream if we so desire.
Have I gone overboard a little? Never!
Congrats to Lauren Jackson. What a special moment to carry the Australian Flag.
Let the games begin!
