After working an early shift, starting at 6am in the dental clinic, it was good to finish in time to see the Team GB being welcomed formally into the village. There is a really good spirit about the place as always, but still it is something extra-special when the home team is here and fully taking part. After the formal ceremony the teams were very happy to mingle and chat and they are clearly keen now to just be getting on with it.
It's difficult to explain the combined tired and excited feelings and how surreal it is to just be stood in the middle of it all, inside looking out, so to speak.
