Jubilympics! Part 2

I'm back from my brief travels North with photographic proof I was really there.  On the top we have a photo taken on my phone to show how good my seats were for the football.  I bought the cheapest tickets available and I thought we'd be at the back of the third tier, so being sat on the fourth row was a very pleasant surprise.  This match is Uruguay V UAE, but we also saw GB V Senegal.  The second photo is the puppies (obviously) and aren't they adorable.
How did you do on Guess The Theme?  They are all members of Team GB!  To be precise Aaron Cook (Taekwondo), Daniel Fox (Hockey), Chantelle Handy (Basketball), Andrew Hunter (Swimming), Danielle King (Swimming), Annie Lush (Sailing), Alex Partridge (Rowing),  Daniel Money, Brett Morse (Athletics) and Dale Garland (Athletics).  All taken from

Way back in May, if you can remember that far, I did a Jubilympics post celebrating the Jubilee.  So now it's time for another one to celebrate the Olympics.  I was a bit worried there wouldn't be much Olympic memorabilia on Etsy because of all the stupid rules to protect the purity of the brand.  But the British crafters came through for me - hurray!!!
