My Day at the Paralympics!

 Its Monday morning and I'm shattered. I’ve had the best weekend, not only was the weather fabulous, me and my boyfriend travelled down to London to see the Paralympics. My boyfriend is originally from London so it was also a good excuse to go down and see his family.

There has been so much hype around the Olympics and I for one have been caught up in the excitement so actually being able to go I was like a child at Christmas.

The whole thing has been so well organised, when we arrived it was like an airport check in having to put your bags through a scanner and walking through the detectors. Once inside you can see the stadium in all its glory surrounded by lots of different food and drink outlets as well as merchandise stores. As it was a hot day I did indulge in a cheeky cider or too along with a couple of ice creams and a cheese and jalapeno pretzel (yum).

The stadium and the atmosphere was amazing, everyone was in such high spirits. The cheers were especially loud when a member of Team GB was competing. We also say Oscar Pistorias who won his race by miles!

Overall the day was fantastic and I'm so glad I got to go down and be a part of it.

Of course I can’t finish off the weekend without some yummy food pics. My boyfriend has banged on and on about this restaurant that do delicious steaks and I have to say he was right. Steak with pepper sauce with jenga chips, mushrooms and water cress followed by a white chocolate brulee to die for!

So that’s the roundup of my weekend, did you get chance to go to the Olympics?

Hope you had a good weekend.
